TJC Chen Taiji Seminar & Assessments 2019 with Shifu Liu

December 8, 2019 @ 10:00 - 14:00

After a year of growth, learning, practicing….and standing, lots and lots of standing, year end assessments are a fantastic opportunity for Tai JI Circle students to demonstrate their progress and receive feedback from Shifu Liu. Everyone is invited, buy a ticket, come and participate in the Foundation class and test, then stay and watch and learn from the experience!

8 December – Sunday 10:00 to 14:00

10:00-11:00: Foundation Chen Taiji Class
11:15-11:45: Chen Tai Ji requirements, principles and demonstration with Shifu Liu
11:45-14:00: Student Assessments and Feedback from Shifu Liu

Reflection is a critical part of practicing Tai Ji Quan and taking a moment at the end of the year to consider what we have accomplished and how we can improve, is exceptionally valuable for our Taiji.  We can also learn by watching the assessments as it is valuable experience to see other students practice.

At year end assessments of Chen Taijiquan Shifu Liu provides TJC students direct feedback, and we will present free training awards to students who have made the most improvement over the course of the year. All TJC students are encouraged to participate regardless of experience. Shifu Liu will discuss and demonstrate the basic requirements of Chen style taijiquan before we start the assessments.

TJC are very fortunate to have Shifu Liu as our teacher and assessor as he is a very experienced wushu/taijiquan competition judge both in China and the UK and can examine students for Duan Wei levels of the Chinese Wushu Association. So don’t miss out on his expert feedback.

These assessments are intended for regular Tai Ji Circle students, but if you feel you are not ready for assesment yet, or are not one of our regular students but would like to come along join in and watch you are welcome to buy a ticket and come along.

Students will demonstrate forms together in groups.  Shifu Liu will provide each student a mark and feedback after each assessment.  Students may participate in as many Chen taiji form assessments they like.

Assessment order
Foundation: silk reeling, 9 form
19 Form
38 Form
Lao Jia Yi Lu

Senior students may request assessment in any other hand form/weapon form that Shifu Liu teaches.  (Please notify Chris & Shifu Liu in advance by email to arrange).
