Saturday, Mai 10th 2014 – Kung Fu seminar with Matteo Pepe-Espert

From 9:30 to 16:30 (with 1 hour break for lunch)

At Domus Athletica (Oslo)

Price: 400 Nok (if you pay before the deadline)

Deadline to sign up and pay: 5th of May - after this date, the price will be 450 Nok

Content: basics of the Kung Fu staff (gùn in Chinese) and applications.

The staff is the most commonly used long weapon in Kung Fu. It doesn’t have a blade (like swords) or a sharp tip (like spears), but its length offers a long range distance for striking and keeping the opponent away. The simplicity of its shape makes it a weapon easily suitable in everyday life. Every object with a long stick can become a staff (a broom, a curtain rod, …). Staff is a must for those who want to learn Chinese martial arts.

During the seminar we will learn how to handle the staff with rotation techniques and a short Taolu (form). We will also cover applications with a partner to learn how to hit and to block with a staff.

The seminar is accessible to everybody and to all levels.

Sunday, Mai 11th 2014 – Qi Gong seminar with Matteo Pepe-Espert

From 9:30 to 16:30 (with 1 hour break for lunch)

At Njårdhallen, gymsal (Oslo)

Price: 400 Nok (if you pay before the deadline)

Deadline to sign up and pay: 5th of May - after this date, the price will be 450 Nok

Content: Yangsheng Taijishan, 1st fan choreography created by Zhang Guangde, founder of our Qi Gong style (Daoyin Yangsheng Gong).

It is one of the long series of Daoyin Yangsheng Gong, directly inspired by Taiji Quan. The fan is one of the many “weapons” used in Qi Gong and allows a better focus of the mind. Very aesthetic, it requires flexibility, finesse and agility.

Its open and harmonious movements, combined with varied stances, increase the flow of energy throughout the body’s meridians (channels for the circulation of the Qi, our inner energy) and its various organs. The opening and closing of the fan requires good agility of the wrist; such movements stimulate the numerous acupuncture points and meridians located in the wrist area (heart, lungs …).

Mastering the fan choreography requires that you make the fan "an extension of your own body". Yangsheng Taijishan is made to strengthen the body and maintain good health. It is accessible to everyone, even for people who never practiced Qi Gong before. For beginners it's a very nice way to discover Qi Gong.

The seminar is opened to everybody and to all levels.
