Deutschland Taiji Projekt 2017 Trainingstreffen #1 mit Yanira Masich

 Gegenseitig unterstützendes Training der von Sam gelernten übungen 
Es ist wichtig, sich Zeit zu nehmen, um das in der Seminarreihe des Deutschland Taiji-Projektes gelernte Material zu üben und zu wiederholen - wollen wir im Curriculum vorwärts kommen und das Material verstehen. In diesen Zwischen den Seminaren Trainingstreffen können wir wiederholen und uns auf das, was als nächster Lernschritt ansteht, vorbereiten.

Yanira Masich begann ihr Taijiquan-Studium 1996 an der National-Universität von Mexiko nach einer Karriere als Leichtathletin, in der sie auch mexikanische Rekordhalterin über 100 Meter Damensprint war. 2002 wurde sie Co-Instructor des UNAM Taijiquan-Programmes und hat seitdem mit Menschen in Mexiko, Kanada, Deutschland, England, Schottland und anderen Ländern gearbeitet. Yanira unterrichtet in vollem Umfang das traditionelle Yang-Stil-Curriculum und das 5 Section-Programm und war 2015 Assistenzlehrerin bei dem 5 Section Taijiquan Full Curriculum & Instructor's Certification Program. Mit Ihrem zusätzlichen Hintergrund aus der Heilmassage hilft sie Ihren Schülern, ihr eigenes Herz zu finden, indem sie das Herz des Taijiquan erfahren.
Between Saminar Training Meetings

Finding the time for practicing and reviewing the material we learn in the Deutschland Taiji Project workshop series is important if we want to keep moving forward with the curriculum and our understanding of the material. In these 'Between Seminar Training Meetings' we can review and prepare for the work to come. 

Yanira Masich began her taijiquan studies in 1996 at the National University of México following an athletics career which included being Mexican national women's 100 metre record holder. In 2002 she became a co-instructor in the UNAM taijiquan program and has since worked with students in México, Canada, USA, Germany, England, Scotland and other countries. Yanira teaches the full curricula of traditional Yang-style Taijiquan and 5 Section Taijiquan and was the assistant instructor of the 2015 5 Section Taijiquan Full Curriculum & Instructor's Certification Program. With a further background in therapeutic massage, she helps students find the heart by finding the heart of the art. Yanira Masich is an 'indoor student' (tudi) of the Masich Internal Arts Method.

Yang-style Taijiquan 'Eight Pieces of Brocade' (Baduanjin) #3

Chen Yanlin's bookTaijiquan is often described as 'meditation in movement' but meditative and energetic aspects of the art often take a back seat to outer form. Learning this type of 'Taiji Neigong/Qigong' will transform your understanding of the art and add depth to your practice.

Fragments of the Yang-style Taijiquan 'Eight Pieces of Brocade' (Baduanjin) have been passed down through various sources but it is not common to find instruction in the entire set. The material was considered by early Yang masters to be an essential part of internal training. While parts of this neigong practice have appeared in print, for example in Chen Yanlin's 1943 book 'Taiji Boxing, Sabre, Sword, Pole, Sparring Compiled', to date there is no full rendering of a Yang 'Eight Pieces of Brocade' in English.

In last year's classes we looked at the the first five parts of the Yang Baduanjin: Section 1 Peng and An, and Section 2 the 21 gesture 'Taijiquan Fundamental Strengthening Body and Mobilizing Qi Method', Section 3, the Waist and Spine, Section 4, The Arms, and Section 5, the Legs. This weekend we will continue with the final three sections: Section 6, 'Standing Post' (Zhan Zhuang), section 7, 'Issuing' and 'Coiling' (Fajin and Chansijin), and section 8, 'Trample Stepping' (Caituigong). On Friday evening we will review sections 3-5.

Las 37 Formas Esenciales del Tai Chi Chuan (Taijiquan 37 Essential Forms)

El Maestro Yang Chengfu (1883-1936) describió treintisiete  formas principales en su libro de 1931 `Tai Chi Chuan, Método y Aplicación.´ Sugirió que éstas eran esenciales para el entendimiento de la aplicación marcial. Después de enumerar todas las formas dentro de la secuencia larga, declaró: "Toda la secuencia de las setenta y ocho posturas está compuesta únicamente de treinta y siete formas distintas".

El vasto trabajo de Sam Masich en esta área ha estimulado un auténtico progreso en la teoría del Tai Chi Chuan, ayudando al arte a seguir avanzando. Este enfoque, al mismo tiempo tradicional y progresista, basado profundamente en los principios, divide las 37 formas en "familias" permitiendo una comprensión más profunda de la estructura subyacente del Tai Chi.

Master Yang Chengfu (1883-1936) Described thirty-seven core forms in His 1931 book, 'Taijiquan Method and Application' He Suggested That These are essential to the understanding of martial application. After listing all the forms have Within the long form states, "The full seventy-eight posture sequence above is Comprised entirely of thirty-seven distinct forms."

Sam Masich's EXTENSIVE work in real-esta area has stimulated breakthroughs in the theory of the taijiquan, helping to push the art forward. At the same time traditional and progressive, highly principled approach esta breaks the 37 forms into 'families' Allowing for a deeper understanding of the Taiji's underlaying structure.
