Middle Way

YangChengLong and Fabian - KunMing

This sites contains ideas related to the practice of traditional Taiji Quan, health benefits, martial art and philosophy (linked to personal development). You will find some findings about my researches: rewarding encounters, thoughts, key practice  points, elements of understanding classical and scientific texts.

 

I do not pay much attention to the style, my main practice being the Wu style 吴. I am passionated by meticulous aspects of relaxation and harmony in the mouvement, which are still rather unknown and which correspond very well to the classics of Taiji (the classics having often their own interpretation by the different schools). Those aspects contribute to the martial efficiency  and to some health/therapeutic benefits. This can be resumed by the following principles (of which the two first are rather well known): structure (端正), spirales (圆润), unity (完整), uniformity and harmony (均匀), deep relaxation (放松), lighteness (轻灵) and internal flow (通透). Those principles correspond to precise and mesurable elements which can be partly assessed visually. I wrote about how to train these aspects in my article Taiji form: an inner journey.

TaiJiQuan Lun - Bamboo book

Here I propose a translation of the Taiji Quan treatise, with explanations related to this profound dimension still little explored in practice, the meticulous aspects I talk about here above. As well as a translation of a text written by Ma Yang Cheng Long about Fang Song (to relaxe and loosen up the mind and body).

2021

This year is my 26th year of practicing Taiji Quan, 20 years following the peculiar teaching of Yang LaoShi. I keep on improving my "internal flow" (通透 TongTou), and I hope to share about it with interested practitioners. Since a few months I am developing a system of levels which seems to me an advantage to enrich my pedagogical approach

2021 Regular workshops in Lausanne

We organise regular workshops in Lausanne since November 2021.

Monthly class for harmonization with a partner and TuiShou

The practice of TuiShou (pushing hands) is enriched with a more meticulous 2 people practice. Each practitioner can choose between a slow/smooth practice and a sportier one, with free and spontaneous exchanges that are necessary for personal evolution in taichi.

Miscellaneous

It is in Valais (Switzerland) that I live, practice and share about my passion. And I do regularly visit Master Yang Cheng Long in China since 2001. He is my main source of inspiration about Taiji Quan and martial arts. My teaching is mainly based on the knowledge he transmits, as well as my own experience and the different parctitioners/teachers/masters with whom I have a chance to improve.
