Welcome to the Tai Chi Wellness News

Welcome to the first Tai Chi Wellness Newsletter! The main purpose of this first edition is to give thanks and recognition to those who came out and supported our Grand Opening, as well as give an insightful look to those who could not be there in person. The mission of this foundation is to develop a complete training system that will make traditional Tai Chi easier to learn and provide access to everyone in the community, such as schools, hospitals, senior centers, and companies. No one will be left out. Our vision is to promote Tai Chi practice for the overall physical and mental wellness.

The Ultimate Goal:

The goal of the Grand Opening was to make the Foundation known to the public. And we’re happy to report that the success of the event blew us all away. To give well-deserved recognition, we must now segue into the special thanks for all those who made our event memorable!

And a Big Thanks to the Luo Yang Normal University Tai Chi Wushu Team for their outstanding performances. Lastly, we would like to acknowledge the wonderful students from Li's Wushu Academy for all their effort and hard work.

Highlights from the Opening Ceremony:

Lau Jia Yi Lu:

 “Lau Jia Yi Lu” in translation means “Old Form 1st Road.” As the name suggests, it is the “first road” taken by students studying the Chen-Style Tai Chi training system. This form helps students develop a basic understanding of Tai Chi principles while beginning to develop “silk reeling” energy.

The performance itself was breathtaking. Eight students dressed in traditional white silk Tai Chi uniforms appeared to harness an unseen power and group energy as they moved in harmony with melodic and meditating music. Their fluid and graceful movements were hypnotizing as they flowed effortlessly through postures, beautifully reflecting the essence of this key foundation form. 

Tai Chi Medley:

The Tai Chi Medley was a combination of Chen-style hand and weapon forms. The hand form “Xin Jia Yi Lu” in translation means “New Form 1st Road.” As indicated by its name, it is a new version of “Lau Jia Yi Lu” and generally considered more advanced in terms of the skills required from students.  In particular, the “Xin Jia” incorporates tighter spiral power and “Fa Jing” (meaning “Explosive Power”).

As we moved onto the second performance, the audience was immediately captivated by the intense focus of four students, two performing Xin Jia Yi Lu and two performing Tai Chi Sword forms. The rhythm of the music moved at a faster pace and with greater intensity, matching the focused movements of the students who displayed power and grace at the same time. Their advanced skill was noted quite clearly and admired by all in attendance.

Chen Sword Group

The Chen Sword Group demonstration was similar to the weapon forms performed earlier in the Tai Chi Medley. Training Sword teaches the student to use Tai Chi principles to move in harmony and connect with objects outside their body, in this particular case a Tai Chi straight sword.

The third performance began with upbeat music that implied faster movements that call for greater precision. Skill, balance and awareness all clearly play an important role in properly executing the postures of Chen-style Tai Chi Sword, especially in a group performance. One false move and someone could truly be hurt! The students proved they were easily up to the task as the five performers turned out a beautiful performance.

開幕典禮的花絮: 

老架一路

 “老架一路” 顧名思義,就是學習陳式太極時,首先需要接受的訓練。這套路有助於學生們在練習陳式太極基礎的功法時,也發展出體驗 “纏絲功”能量流動的功力。 

這項表演美不勝收,使人不禁屏息觀看。八個學生穿著傳統白色絲質的太極制服,隨著祥和的節奏與樂聲打著這太極套路,氣勢磅礡的英姿令人稱讚不已。表演者順暢且優美的動作讓觀眾著迷,在舉手投足之間完全地不費氣力,充分展現出這“老架一路”的極致精神。 

太極混合式

太極混合式結合了陳式太極與刀劍式。“新架一路”,恰如字義,由“老架一路”衍生而來,屬於高難度的一個架式。在“新架”的表演中,可以看得到更緊密的摔揉與爆發力之哂谩?nbsp;

在第二項的表演中,觀眾的注意力一下子就被學生們的精湛表演給吸引住了。四位表演者中,兩人表演新架一路;而另外兩人則表演太極劍。樂曲的節奏隨著表演者動作的忽快忽慢,穠纖合度的力道與優雅的動作同時呈現在所有觀眾的面前。 

陳式太極劍團體的表演: 

陳式太極劍團體的表演與稍早太極混合式中的刀劍式表演有些雷同之處。在此太極直劍的表演裡,我們看到表演者將太極內功與手上所持的劍完全結為一體,剛柔之間有著行雲流水的美感。 

這第三項的表演在音樂的快節奏裡拉開序幕,顯露出表演者每個動作中裡毫不含糊的精確度與細膩感。在這項團體的表演裡,陳式太極劍的每一個招式透過表演者的技巧、平衡感與對於太極能量的體認,精準且一致的動作是成功表演的要件。只要有稍稍地不慎,就有可能有人受傷!而參與表演的五位學生,在所有人的面前似乎不費心力就將太極劍美感呈現得淋漓盡致,令人讚賞。

閉幕感言: 

總體上說來,太極養生協會的開幕儀式非常成功! 這一群希望將太極拳的好處普遍地介紹給所有社區的人們,共同分享了歡樂的笑聲,也激發了受鼓舞的心情。所有的來賓對於每個人的見證都聽得津津有味,對於每一項表演也都讚賞不已。太極養生協會對於所有的忠實支持者與奉獻心力的所有工作人員感激不盡,謝謝您對於太極養生協會的關心與愛護,我們會持續對於協會新的活動做報導,下次再會。
