The course, spread over two weekends and a Suturday, will give students an opportunity to learn the whole of the Chen style Taiji Guandao form.
Those who know the form and wish to revise it can attend individual days. Revision of the whole form will be done on the last Suturday (22 September).
The Guandao is a heavier weapon than the Spear. Where the Spear is flexible and trains using power from the Dantian, the Guandao trains the power of the whole body. It is recommended that students use a light (normal size) Guandao for learning and initial practice. If they wish to pursue more serious practice, they can get a heavier one later.
The Course will take place out in the open, weather permitting.
