Students will be introduced to the fundamentals of the Hunyuan System (混元太極) of Grandmaster Feng Zhiqiang, as espoused by Master Chen Zhonghua (陳中華大師), e.g., Yin-yang (open/close), basic standing pole and wuji stances/meditation. More information on the Hunyuan system can be found at: http://www.hunyuantaiji.com.cn/cnsim/dashifengcai/index.asp

Students will be introduced to the fundamentals of the Practical Method (實用拳法) of Grandmaster Hong Junsheng, as espoused by Master Chen Zhonghua, e.g., positive and negative circles, structure, orbital and axial rotations, peng, kua vs. waist, double-heavy, stickiness, ji/pressing energy, 45 degree angle, sinking, and suspending the head. As time permits, drills and exercises will be presented. More information on the Practical Method can be found at: http://practicalmethod.com/lang/en/

In general, for those who are interested in health, the Hunyuan qigong (混元氣功) exercises will be of great benefit. For those who are also interested in the martial aspects of taijiquan, knowledge of the Hunyuan 24-form and the fundamentals of the Practical Method will be useful.
