'TUI SHOU STEREO' in BERLIN, 9-11 December 2022

Postby Giles on Sat Oct 29, 2022 6:35 am

First of all: Please see the thread for the first Tui Shou Stereo seminar for some background information about our approach and influences. I added this in reply to a question by Nicklinjm on October 29th.

And this seminar is in December, not October (my bad, posted wrong date :-[ )


A 3-day TuiShou seminar given by two teachers and friends who share many approaches and at the same time input their individual qualities. As we say, 'Tui Shou Stereo'.

Following on from the first successful seminar we now present the second edition.

We have known each other and trained together for many years. Especially in the last two years we have intensively exchanged ideas, gained insights and - we believe - made progress. Now we would like to share these practical insights and practice methods with you.

What do we want to work on with you? We start with seemingly simple preparatory exercises. This leads us to one-handed Tui Shou and then to two-handed Tui Shou with fixed and moving steps. We introduce some technique elements and a few patterns. But the emphasis is always on sensitivity and flow, about Tai Chi as a way of letting go, of interacting and of course as a martial art.

Together we will discover how we can shape our partner training so that we mutually benefit and can progress. How do we make partner training both cooperative and challenging, and also enjoyable?

On the third day, those who are interested will have the chance to go one step further in training: we implement what we have practised in short and fleeting moments of free attack and counterattack. Here we take a relaxed approach to avoid triggering excessive ‘startle’ responses. This means you can work with an intensity that is challenging but doesn’t overwhelm you to the point that you relapse into old patterns – which will usually mean getting stiff and starting to block and cling on to your training partner.

As teachers, we each have our own nuances and perspectives; our own way of teaching. At the same time we believe that we complement each other and are close in our visions and goals. On this basis we offer a seminar with ‘added value', in which our slightly different and at the same time compatible approaches to teaching create a 'three-dimensional' learning space. As we said: 'Tui Shou Stereo'.

Prerequisite for participation is experience in Tai Chi Chuan and Tui Shou. Or, in consultation with us, experience in other martial arts. At the same time, it will be possible for participants to train with each other on different levels, so that everyone can work in an appropriate way.

In the future we will be offering regular and ongoing weekend workshops to support your TuiShou development.

Do not make the mistake of giving up the near in order to seek the far.
