On the last weekend in August, Instructor Lubo Tzolov conducted a workshop in Berlin. Amongst the participants, we welcome new member Ortwin Pötter and his “Chinese Close Combat – Academy” students from throughout Germany. Ortwin shared that his Ba Ji Quan’s Sifu – Adam Hsu encouraged them to learn other styles and Ortwin found Zhong Xin Dao I Liq Chuan.
We are delighted that everyone were able to share and train in person. Two ZXD ILC students from Hamburg also traveled specially to be there.
The advanced level and understanding of martial arts and body mechanisms was of great benefit to the participants in realizing the benefits of the ZXD ILC curriculum. Ortwin also successfully completed the grading for level 2, and instructor Lubo Tzolov had the honor of presenting him his sash.
All participants were very happy and satisfied with this opportunity to broaden their horizons. It was the first but definitely not the last Zhong Xin Dao I Liq Chuan workshop in Berlin.
