Tai chi chuan Form.

The 37 movements , Yang style, Tai chi chuan form was developed by the last great tai chi chuan master.

Cheng Man Ching demonstreerde zijn 37 vorm in de jaren 70 in New York.
Deze taichi vorm is afgeleidt van de lange taichi vorm bestaande uit 108 bewegingen welke door de leraar van Chen Man Ching, Yang Chen Fu, is ontwikkeld.
Cheng man ching is begonnen met taichi omdat hij een ernstige vorm van tuberculose had ontwikkeld welke moeilijk was te genezen.
Na een intensieve periode van taichi training onder leiding van zijn leraar Yang Chen fu, was de genezing voor 100%.
(Hierbij een korte noot, ikzelf(indomaster) ben compleet genezen van astma door taichi training.)
Cheng man Ching leerde de authentieke Yang chen fu vorm welke bestond uit 108 taichi houdingen, herhalingen meegerekend.

Regelmatige oefening op een dagelijkse basis met correcte houdingen kunnen vele chronische klachten van allerlei aard verlichting brengen of genezen.
Voor mensen die zich met meditatie bezig houden is de taichi vorm een zeer nuttige aanvulling.

When starting to study the tai chi chuan form you should keep these basics in mind.

1) : Before starting the form, put yourself in open focus. Try keeping the open focus throughout the form.

2) : Put your awareness on the tan tien, or third chakra, located near the navel, Let all movements originate from the tan tien, the other parts of the body following. Keep your awareness on the tan tien throughout the form.

3) : Move as if you were in water, develop your sensitivity to the extent of feeling the slight resistance offered by air when you move.

4) : Step at first with an "empty" foot, quite weightless, as if testing the ground. Put your weight on your heel first, and then the outer edge of your foot, then on the whole sole.

5) : Hands and arms are almost always in front of the torso during the form, and they do not start movement, rather they follow the movements of the tan tien. Keep your shoulders down an relaxed.

6) : When practising the form observe the application to martial arts of each of the movements. Direct your energy according to that, but always in a relaxed way. People who need to exporess rage or violence can do so by practising the form twice. the first time, they should imagine the practice as a martial art, although in a relaxed way. The second time, once the anger energy has been dissipated, the practice can be more meditation oriented.

7) : Try keeping a unity of pace in all movements. a practice that is too slow will bear no health benefits. Master Cheng Man Ching recommended a 6 to 7 minutes duration for the 37 movements Yang style form, which is quite fast.

8) : During the whole form, the knees are slightly bent. In some parts of the form the flexion will increase, but in the beginning keep your knees only slightly bent in order not to stress the joint. Your bent knees should always allow you to see your toes during the first 6 months.

9) : Research your movement, find new ways of moving within the form. Use your body creatively within the form. Everyday your practice should be different, new, fresh. Follow your body's inspiration even if it departs from the form. Then, start again from the beginning.

10) : During practice, relax. When already relaxed, relax even more. Shoong, Shoong, Shoong.

11) : The form has yin movements, in which we "receive" and deflect energy, and yang movements in which we apply energy.
Be aware of this alternativeness or duality of the form.
Duality disappears to give way to tai chi when we are in the present moment.
At each moment of the form we will be either in a yin or a yang position tai chi chuan is that which manifests itself as a yin or yang form We put that into application avoiding double weight.
we are on one foot or on the other.
Never on both.

12) : While you go through the form, keep your breathing smooth and soft.
Experiment with your breath if you wish inhaling in the yin parts and exhaling on the yang parts.
Then try the opposite.
but in general let your breath self- regulate.

13) : Practice on a daily basis, on waking up and before going to bed.
Become a member of a school where tai chi chuan is practised in exact good postures and were the teacher is well versed in good pushing hands practical aplications (that means that the teacher has a genuine tai chi structure to pass on to his students) and has a solid background from a good master, otherwise you will never get the wonderfull benefits of the art of tai chi chuan.
You should start with long strechting postures first.

The practice of tai chi chuan will improve your health and your mood.
Remember to introduce open focus during your tai chi chuan practice
The taoist used to include in their lives a series of very simple but basic and effective health preserving practices which allowed them to extend their lifespan, and therefore their practice.
