Seminar "Tui Shou Stereo" in Berlin, 26-28 August

Postby Giles on Sat Jul 09, 2022 8:04 am

My good friend and training partner Martin Neumann and I are giving a seminar together at the end of August. See the text here directly or, to view our eye-candy seminar logo, follow this link to Martin's website: ... Stereo.pdf

Here’s the info, edited slightly for RSF readers:

A 3-day Tuishou workshop with 2 friends and teachers who share many approaches while adding their individual touch & perspective. Hence the name 'Tui Shou Stereo'.

We’ve been friends and have been training together for many years. Especially in the last 2 years we have intensively exchanged ideas, gained insights and - we believe - made progress. Now we’d like to share these practical insights and training methods with you.

Content: Starting with basic exercises (jibengong), then from single-hand tuishou and on to two-handed Tuishou with fixed and moving steps. We’ll use some techniques and patterns; the focus in all stages is on sensitivity and flow while retaining good structure and clarity.
And we’ll be giving special attention to a particular theme that has emerged for us in recent years: How can we let go of the ‘fear-driven’ desire to control the flow of movement and events? And hence to better connect within ourselves and with our partner, or indeed opponent. Ultimately, to become more free. --> It’s amazing how much new stuff, how many new possibilities and solutions, start to emerge when one can overcome that subtle urge to keep ‘putting the brakes on’ !

On the third day, those interested will have the chance to go a step further in training: putting into practice the trained material – and above all, mindset – in short and fleeting moments of free attack and counterattack. Here too we’ll be emphasizing relaxed mind and body to reduce or avoid the startle reflex and the resulting tendency to stiffen up and block the flow.

As teachers, we each have our own accents and perspectives; our own way of showing and explaining things. At the same time, we know that we complement each other, are close in our visions and goals. We hope that through our slightly different and at the same time harmonising approaches to teaching, we can create a 'three-dimensional' learning space. As the title says, 'Tui Shou Stereo'.

Experience with Tai Chi Chuan and with Tuishou is a prerequisite. Or, in consultation with us, experience inh other martial arts. At the same time, it will be possible for participants to train with each other at different levels so that everyone can work in an appropriate way. ...and yes, we speak English :) ...
