Basic Internal Practices
Date: Sunday, July 9, 2017
Location: Milburn Creek Boat Launch, Freeport/Baldwin
Atlantic Avenue, Baldwin, NY across from All Care Physical Therapy
(If inclement weather then the workshop will be held at Bethlehem Lutheran Church, 1375 Grand Ave., Baldwin)
The foundation upon which we base our fighting/healing systems is in the connection between the external movement and the internal movement of qi (chi). The workshop will focus on this connectivity with an emphasis on (4) four fundamental principals:
- Spinal alignment
- Moving energy through the dan tien
- Yin and yang differentiation.
This workshop is for beginners to advanced students of Tai Chi Chuan regardless of style. It is the expectation of the workshop to increase the depth of internal (qi) work consciously executed in each individual’s Tai Chi practice.
Workshop will be led by Scott Ruff
Scott Ruff is originally from Buffalo NY, he has studied Taiji and Kung-fu for approximately 25 years with various instructors. He has studied and been an assistant instructor of both Shaolin Kung-Fu, Yang style Taiji and Chen style (Laojia) Taichi with the Shaolin Institute under Shifu Shi Deru. He has studied Chen style (Xinjia) and Northern Wu style Taichi at the White Crane Taichi School under David Dolbear. Scott Ruff emphasizes the fundamentals of Tai Chi as they relate to the arts martial origins and the application of internal kung fu practiced within Tai Chi in his teaching approach.
