Update 10/29/14 – I am here in Seattle and it has been 2 days with Master CZQ and my understanding of taijiquan has gone up another level. I know how to do the martial flowers in the spear form — rather I know what I need to do for those flowers. The purplish bruise on my knee is a reminder of what not to do. I also understand more about the 113 energies in Taijiquan and in reviewing online translation, I see many misconceptions. I will be writing up what I understood of the 13 energies or jin.
Just received exciting confirmation for the October workshop in Seattle, WA. Master Chen Zi Qiang will be teaching spear and sword. My kind of workshop and I will be interpreting again. Check out the workshop information here.
