2 Day Workshop w/ Wai Tang - Oakland Sep 13 & 14 2014

“Nei Kung with Body Unity”

I Liq Chuan Instructor Ashe HiggsGuest Instructor: Wai Tang

Jump to Section

Training

I am pleased to announce that Guest Instructor Sifu Wai Tang 2nd Generation Lineage Disciple,   
is coming to Oakland, California for an  I Liq Chuan Workshop September 13 & 14, 2014 

This workshop will focus on teaching you the process of body unification and developing the “inner force” – née gong – within your body. 

Nei Kung is systematic training of your ligaments, tendons and fascia. Prerequisite to this training of is the understanding and facility of how your nervous system operates when your of muscles relax. Many students of the Martial Arts are told to relax but they are not taught systematically and progressively what comprises true relaxation. Your Yin muscles and Yang muscles have to work together, one complementary to the other. A Harmonized flow of the Yin and Yang muscles will make it possible to correctly train your ligaments, tendons and fascia. In this workshop we will learn both solo and partner exercises designed to help us discover how to feel the flow and function of the Yin and Yang muscles, and to recognize your skeleton (bones and joints centers) as Neutral. You will experience the dynamic Balance of your Yin and Yang muscles through the following solo and partner training exercises: 

• Using the Thirteen Points as References 
• Absorb and Project 
• Condense and Expand as Energy Movement Structure 
• Proper awareness of optimal Body Structure, Relaxation and Energy Flow 

When we first begin training we explore the limits of Yin and Yang muscles in order to find and recognize Neutral. After we recognize Neutral, we train Yin and Yang muscles without leaving Neutral. As we advance, Neutral will become the reference point from which we will adjust Yin and Yang. 

Wai is very knowledgeable about the historical development of the “Yi Jin Jing” "Muscle Tendon Change" classical training methods. Wai's background as a physicist makes his teaching simple, compelling and clear. Emphasis will be on developing not just your technical ability and understanding but your power of awareness and attention; so as to you free your conscious awareness to recognize and realize. 

It's already there. You just need to recognize and realize.”
-Grandmaster Sam FS Chin

About I-Liq Chuan:

I-Liq Chuan (roughly translated as ""Mind Strength Fist") is an art of cultivating consciousness based on Tai Chi and Chan (Zen) principles of non-assertion, non-resistance, the harmony of yin and yang, oneness, and the present moment. I Liq Chuan is an art which is growing rapidly worldwide with Instructors and Practitioners in 19 countries. A brilliant synthesis of Tai Chi, Hsing-I, Ba Gua, Shaolin and Hakka arts; I Liq Chuan is also a merging of Taoist and Buddhist teaching. Master Sam Chin was trained in martial arts since childhood by his father - the founder of I Liq Chuan, Grand Master Chin Lik Keong. As a system of Kung Fu, I-Liq Chuan emphasizes the development of internal power through mental attitude and awareness. The martial training develops sticking and merging abilities, circular spiral energy, Chin Na (locking), Fa Jing (projecting force), Chi Kung, and most importantly; the integration of the mind's complete awareness in the present moment. I-Liq Chuan trains the ability to sense the opponent's intention through awareness and to redirect the force and use it against the opponent or incorporate the use of Fa Jing.

About the Instructor

GM Sam FS Chin 

Wai started off in Chinese Kung Fu when he was a teenager in Hong Kong. He later began training in Japanese martial arts of Aikido and started the long journey of searching for the secret of internal martial art. This led him to years of study in Taijiquan. He trained under Mr. Wu Ta-yeh of Taijiquan Tutelage of Palo Alto when he was working in Stanford Linear Accelerator Center, after getting his Ph.D. in high energy physics from Columbia University. Later he studied Baguazhang from Master Park Bok-Nam in Richmond, Virginia. In 2004, Wai met Grandmaster Sam in an I Liq Chuan workshop at Chuang Yen Monastery and since then became the dedicated student of I Liq Chuan. 

Wai has trained exclusively in I Liq Chuan directly from the gatekeeper, Grandmaster Sam FS Chin and has been a disciple of Master Sam FS Chin since 2008. 

Wai has cross trained in many different systems of Martial Arts so he can understand perspectives from students coming into I Liq Chuan from other styles. He can share with you invaluable contextual insights and guidance that will enhance your training experience and your ability to progress. 

Since 2004, Wai has traveled extensively to train with and assist Master Chin; highlights include

2 day internal martial arts workshop in Costa Mesa with Ashe Higgs

I Liq Chuan Instructor Ashe HiggsGuest Instructor: Ashe Higgs

Jump to Section

Training

I Liq Chuan (Mind-Body Fist) is an art of cultivating awareness based on Tai Chi and Chan (Zen) principles of non-assertion, non-resistance, harmony of yin and yang, oneness, and realization within the present moment. The movements of I Liq Chuan are slow, focused (meditative), and coordinated with breathing.

At higher levels of practice, the movements have self-defense applications.

“When facing a single tree, if you look at a single one of its red leaves, you will not see all the others. When the eye is not set on one leaf, and you face the tree with nothing at all in mind, any number of leaves are visible to the eye without limit. But if a single leaf holds the eye, it will be as if the remaining leaves were not there.””
-The Unfettered Mind

In order to transcend technique, you must get to the root of why certain movements must be done in a certain way. By training the basic energy you train yourself to recognize certain qualities which manifest through all movement. All movements are manifestations of tai chi principles; the balance of yin and yang.

Instructors

Miro and AsheMaster Alexander Skalozub has been leading his very well established I Liq Chuan in Moscow since many years. He is supervising several schools in other Russian cities and some Russian speaking countries as well. Through couple of last years he and his team have organized several International Summer Camps in Ukraine and Russia. In the last year he has conducted his first international retreat at our retreat center in Slovakia. He is well known by his deep knowledge of the principles paired with the highest level of martial arts skills. He has inspired hundreds of students by his committed approach and strong mental and physical appearance. He has reached the highest student and instructor ranks from all students of Grandmaster Sam F.S. Chin and has the second master level currently.

While Alexander will be the head instructor during this event, his assistant instructor will be me, Miro Kovacik. I am the founder of I Liq Chuan group in Vienna, Austria, and the founder of the European I Liq Chuan Retreat Center in Slovakia. I will be the main organizer during this event.

Jump to top...

Training

This retreat will be open both for new and advanced students and instructors. Newcomers will be introduced in the I Liq Chuan system through explanations of concepts, principles and the body mechanics. They will participate in all classes with more advanced students. All students regardless of their skill level will be training together by training the same exercises and routines. An important part of the retreat are individual corrections of movements and applications, hints to the body structure etc.

Daily there will be 10 hours of training. This sounds a lot, but you need to bear in mind that I Liq Chuan is based rather on the feel and preciseness and not on the physicial effort. Between the classes there will be enough breaks. We want to reach a balanced mixture between the mental and physical training. There will bethe morning program for meditation, Qigong and Zhang Zhuang. After the breakfast there will be the training for Basic Exercises, Applications, Spinning Hands and Sticky Hands. During the afternoons there will be also classes for individual training needs of students.

Jump to top...

Participants

Our training group will consist from I Liq Chuan students from various groups. We are very open to beginners who want to learn I Liq Chuan but often the majority of the participants has been formed by I Liq Chuan students from various European countries and from US.

Jump to top...

Grading

We will work partly in small groups in order to teach what the particular participants need for their next step in the I Liq Chuan curriculum. We will prepare both the students and instructors towards the grading.

For those students who will be ready for the grading, we will conduct the grading at the end of the camp.

If you plan to be graded during this camp, please send me your grading application per e-mail tillAugust 25th. I will give you further instructions after that.

Leisure Time

The venue of the retreat is located on a beautiful hilltop, 1000 meters above the sea level in “Vepor mountains”. Its surface is approximately 25 hectars. There used 3 homesteads in the past. In last few years, we and our neighbor have developed a cooperation in order to establish our new homesteads surrounded by organic farms. Currently my family lives here saisonally in a yurt. Partly we are using our neighors house. This summer, we have started to build our permanent base – a new house from ecological materials inspired by the traditional architecture. As the live here goes, naturally, we learn more and more about the natural farming from the local farmers but also from the Austrian permaculture specialists Sepp and Josef Andreas Holzer and other experts. We are building networks with local farmers and all people interested in self-reliant life style.

In the leisure time, you might be interested to see some of our small achievements which should make the life in the mountains easier. There are things like an off-grid solar system, a prototype of a generator based on wood distillation, a central heating which works completely without electrical pumps, an artificial pond without any plastic foil and concrete and so on. The estate itself consists from steep meadows full of herbs and of pine and birch forest, all is connected with dirt roads and trails. The estate and its direct neighborhood are beautiful and big enough for your small every day expeditions. You cannot get lost, you can walk on your own or with someone else who wants to share the walk with you. This year we have brought 3 half-wild horses (Hucul horses) from our partner, the Hucul Club from Sihla (www.hucul.sk). If you like to see the further environment, we can organize a tour for you. There are nice hiking and bicycle trails (very tough!), local farms, protected virgin forest etc.

tentTraining Conditions

The training will be conducted mainly in outdoor. Normally in September the climate is very enjoyable. Not too hot, not too cold. But you are advised to bring also warm clothes, couple of T-shirts and spare shoes. I Liq Chuan students are required to wear I Liq Chuan T-shirts and black pants.

In case of rainy or very hot weather, we will train under a large space tent. You might need a sun protection cream, torch light, disinfectant for skin (after the partner training), small first aid kit, and some basic medicine. Please, make sure that you have a sufficient travel insurance.

Families

FamiliesYou might want to bring your families with you. The place offers naturally very good conditions for a family vacation, but one has to like this kind of environment. There is the nature and that's it. Other alternatives like going to other places for a day trip are possible but it does not make sense. We would be happy to offer the spouses, partners to be involved in our I Liq Chuan activities at least for a part of the day. For example by inviting them for classes in qigong, meditation, basic exercises etc. And we will suggest some other suitable leisure time program for them if they don't want to participate in the classes at all. This year we have picked tons of delicous mushrooms, strawberries, raspeberries. In September, there will be blackberries, maybe also mushrooms, herbs etc.

Meals
Cottage

In general, all meals will be macrobiotic, which means vegan and vegetarian. On special occasions, we may prepare some organic, most likely lamb meat. If you need a special diet (f.e. gluten free), please contact us in front of the event.

9Accommodation

The accommodation in the cottage is simple but cozy. The house is traditional but equipped with a comfortable bath, with 2 hot showers, 2 flush toilets and electricity plugs for charging your devices.

The accommodation in the yurt next to the main cottage means that you will have a camping bed inside, there will be a wood stove for heating and the walls are insulated. There will be maximum 6 beds in the yurt. Sleeping in the yurt is very enjoyable and due to the round form of the structure, it will be a unique experience.

For those who prefer to stay in an own tent, there will be a camping place. The camping place will be located in the backyard of the cottage next to the yurt. The camping place will have its own outdoor showers (in a tent) and compost toilets.

You will be able to charge your mobile phones, laptops etc. in the cottage. There is good mobile phone coverage and finally, since this week we have a high speed internet connection. We have established a WiFi network on the campsite.

General information about the directions to the venue

The meeting point, the village Sihla is located 250 km from the Slovakian capital Bratislava towards east. The closest airports are Bratislava (250 km), Vienna (300 km), Budapest (200 km), Cracow (250 km), Zakopane (160 km). Those who participated last year know that Sihla is the neighbor village of Drabsko.

The main meeting point will be the pub “Bistro” in the center of Sihla. There is a parking place in front of the pub. The pub has a garden. We will meet there at 4 pm on Saturday, September 14th. If you have a delay, please give me a call.

We will park our cars safely to our partner's house and will be picked up by 4x4 cars. The distance from Sihla to the camp site is 7 kilometers. Some of us might prefer to have delivered just our luggage and to hike to the camp site. The hike without luggage takes about 1,5 to 2 hours.

2 Day Workshop w/ Wai Tang - Boston Sep 6&7 2014

Submitted by Ashe Higgs on Sun, 07/13/2014 - 5:23pm

“Nei Kung with Body Unity”

I Liq Chuan Instructor Ashe HiggsGuest Instructor: Wai Tang

Jump to Section

Training

I Liq Chuan is an sophisticated internal martial art that has become known for its effectiveness in developing mindfulness and - from mindfulness - real martial skill.

This workshop will cover Nei Kung and body Unity. Nei Kung is training of ligament, tendon and fascia. Prerequisite is the relaxation of muscles: Yin muscles and Yang muscles have to work together, one complementary to the other. The more balance of Yin and Yang muscles, the easier to get to train ligament, tendon and fascia. In this workshop we will learn both solo and partner exercises designed to help us discover Yin and Yang muscles, and to recognize our skeleton (bones and joints centers) as Neutral. We will experience the Balance of Yin and Yang muscles through the following:

  • Thirteen Points as References
  • Absorb and Project
  • Condense and Expand as Energy Movement Structure
  • Relaxation Energy as Training Process: Loose, Soft, Elastic, Fa-Jing

When we first begin training we explore the limits of Yin and Yang muscles in order to find and recognize Neutral. After we recognize Neutral, we train Yin and Yang muscles without leaving Neutral. As we advance, Neutral will become the reference point from which we will adjust Yin and Yang..

It's already there. You just need to recognize and realize.”

About the Instructor

GM Sam FS Chin 

Wai has trained in I Liq Chuan directly from the gatekeeper, Grandmaster Sam FS Chin. He has cross-trained in many different systems so he can understand perspectives from students coming into I Liq Chuan from other systems. He can share with you invaluable contextual insights and guidance that will enhance your training experience and your ability to progress.

Wai has been training I Liq Chuan since 2004, and has been a disciple of Master Sam FS Chin since 2008.

Wai has traveled extensively to train with and assist Master Chin; highlights include

·         San Francisco in 2006, 2007, 2010

·         Malaysia in 2009

·         Perth, Australia in 2009

·         Moscow, Russia in 2009

·         Kiev, Ukraine 2009

·         Los Angles, 2011

·         MACS Martial Arts Collective Society Gathering, Sacramento 2011

Wai started off in Chinese Kung Fu when he was a teenage in Hong Kong.  He later began training in Japanese martial arts of Akido and started the long journey of searching for the secret of internal martial art.  This led him to years of study in Taijiquan (both Yang and Chen Style) and Baguazhang.  In 2004, Wai met Grandmaster Sam in an I Liq Chuan workshop at Chuang Yen Monastery and since then became the dedicated student of I Liq Chuan.

Wai is currently part of a selected few students around the world to hold the I Liq Chuan rank of Student Level 6 and Instructor Level 2.

Ashe Higgs seminar in Norway 2014

Submitted by Espen Andreassen on Fri, 07/04/2014 - 4:51pm
 

We had a wonderful weekend working on the 21 form and with some applications.
In the end we had a grading for all the participants.
Everyone was quite happy about the outcome :)

Ashe has a very clear way of communicating his message.
Also he is a patience and kind man.
It's easy to understand what he wants to say and if there are doubts and questions, he has a way of explaining the same thing in slightly different word.. making sure everybody gets the message.

It was also good to see Ashe again after about three years.
He has progressed allot and we felt all that we got the best out of the time spent with him during his stay.

We also had the time to take him to the Viking museum.
Ashe was quite in to vikings as a youngster, so this was something he really enjoyed.
We also took him to the seashore so that he could do some "rock balancing".

All in all I believe we can say we enjoyed having him here and I think he enjoyed his stay.
Lets make it happen again some time.

The joy of the I Liq Chuan community lives on :)

Training

I Liq Chuan (Mind-Body Fist) is an art of cultivating awareness based on Tai Chi and Chan (Zen) principles of non-assertion, non-resistance, harmony of yin and yang, oneness, and realization within the present moment. The movements of I Liq Chuan are slow, focused (meditative), and coordinated with breathing.

At higher levels of practice, the movements have self-defense applications.

“When facing a single tree, if you look at a single one of its red leaves, you will not see all the others. When the eye is not set on one leaf, and you face the tree with nothing at all in mind, any number of leaves are visible to the eye without limit. But if a single leaf holds the eye, it will be as if the remaining leaves were not there.””
-The Unfettered Mind

In order to transcend technique, you must get to the root of why certain movements must be done in a certain way. By training the basic energy you train yourself to recognize certain qualities which manifest through all movement. All movements are manifestations of tai chi principles; the balance of yin and yang.
