Tame the Tiger

Early morning quiet time in the Xixi Wetlands National Park was cool and beautiful. Chi Gong practice at the top of the pagoda overlooking the entire park. Some personal practice of forms in the empty village square was a welcome solitude.
Our first session we had demonstrations from an 84 year old grand master of Eagle Claw. His hands were soft as if they were empty with high temperature in the centre of the palm and cold to touch on the back. His movement was beautiful, and his manner very humble.
We then had demonstrations from Wushu Masters from too any styles to mention, They includes very famous chinese people, many the heads of their own styles, some of whom have visited Australia.
After a banquet lunch with the Masters there were many more demonstrations, so many the video will tell us who they were, and endless keepsake photos.
Eventually they left and we had a lesson in push hands from Loa Tao, first Disciple to Grandmaster Meng Xianming. His approach used very small force.
We finished the day with review of Tai Chi Daoyin Gong to keep it fresh, and Master Li taught some detail for the sword form.
Look to the right, look to the left, turn, move forward, look to the right, turn, move forward, look to the left.
