About the event

This day is gonna be all about movement!

Dr. Dan Vercammen is going to take you on a journey in this free trial class.

Mobility training, stances & sequences, tuishou, sparring and jinggong/meditative practice, all of this in 2 hours!

A bit of background information

We practice Yang Tradition Taijiquan. Within the Yang Tradition several sub-styles developed during the 20th century. Our method comes from Shanghai during the first half of the 20th century, when this city harboured a flourishing Martial Arts world and several big names played an important role in the development of Taijiquan. We owe our practice to grandmasters Dong Yingjie and Tian Zhaolin, who were both well-known masters closely involved in the spreading of the Yang Style Taijiquan initiated by Yang Chengfu. They both taught in Shanghai when Yang had left the city to return north. Prof. Dr. Dan KJ Vercammen's most important teacher, Dr. Fu Qinglong, was trained by Tian Zhaolin himself and by Yue Huanzhi, a friend and disciple of Dong Yingjie. In our Taijiquan we teach students all aspects of Taijiquan: health practices, stances/postures and sets, energy and focus development, martial applications, weapon practice (straight sword and sabre, long staff, lance, halberd and fan), theory and philosophy and the specific alchemical applications that only we teach.
