Retreat

Instructor: Harrison Moretz

 

This three day retreat will emphasize training methods to increase skill, improve internal coordination, promote health, and cultivate spirit, qi & essence神氣精.

 Bagua Zhang is a subtle and effective internal system of cultivation and martial arts. The hallmark of Bagua Zhang is its use of circular walking with coiling and spiraling movement. This gives the practitioner the ability to move and change direction with ease, to evade and neutralize the opponent, and to generate internal power.

 Xin Yi Quan – Mind Intent boxing – is the oldest of the Chinese internal martial arts. It is especially good at consolidating the qi and developing internal strength. The basic components of the system are the five elements and the twelve animals.

 Daily practice will include:

* Bagua and Xinyi nei gong (qigong)

* Internal conditioning methods

* Bagua and Xinyi applications

* Two person training methods

* Theory and philosophy

 Lecture/discussion each evening on the theory and philosophy of Bagua Zhang and Xinyi Quan in nourishing life and martial application.
