About the event

The Spear has been used in Tai Chi and other Martial Arts for thousands of years. Nowadays it is not practiced with the intent to harm others or with the desire to protect ourselves, but instead, as a way to strengthen the Jin (internal force) of the body and the connective tissues and bones. The Spear quickly shows us how to link the body together. At first it can feel clumsy and separate from the rest of the body but with practice we see how it helps us to feel the centre of the body and teaches us how to use the centre to create and express force.

Even a light spear can feel heavy at the beginning but soon the body gets stronger, and you are able to use spears of greater weight and length.

In this workshop we will look at some basic spear movements and techniques that can be a great addition to your training and health.

Note – A long wooden staff will be needed for this workshop. They can be acquired at most hardware stores. I do have a few extras that can be borrowed. Contact me for more info.
