9781594391217: Wudang Taijiquan - Zhou, Xuan-Yun, 108-sequence, and Martial Applications [DVD] [Reino Unido]

(Note format is Region 0 playable in all parts of the world.) Beautiful Wudang Mountain is the world's largest Daoist center. Dating back 2,000 years, it spans 321 square kilometers with 72 peaks, dozens of architectural masterpieces, many lakes, rivers, and a forest which still sustains over 600 known medicinal herbs. Daoism is an ancient Chinese philosophy that teaches its practitioners to live a peaceful, refined life in harmony with nature. Centuries ago, Daoist philosophy, such as yin/yang theory, was adopted into the martial arts trained by the monks of the Wudang monasteries, and Taijiquan (Tai Chi Chuan) was created. Taijiquan, or 'Grand Ultimate Fist', combines the internal skills of yang sheng (life nourishing) with ancient fighting techniques. Practiced slowly, Taijiquan is a set of gentle, flowing movements which promotes exceptional health and well-being. Taijiquan emphasizes the development of a strong root, proper body alignment, efficient movement, and a calm and relaxed mind and body. The application of Taijiquan reveals it is an effective martial art specializing in using softness to overcome hardness, uprooting the opponent, redirecting incoming force, and striking vital points. This program discusses the history of Wudang Taijiquan, offers a Warm Up section, and teaches the essential skill of Zhan-Zhuang, or standing meditation, which develops the Qi (energy) throughout your body. The complete 108-posture Wudang Taijiquan sequence is demonstrated, and each posture is instructed separately with martial applications. Each technique is taught and demonstrated in detail, making it easy for the viewer to learn. The ancient art of Wudang Taijiquan has much wisdom to offer beginners and experienced Tai Chi practitioners of all styles. Features performances by senior YMAA Instructors Nicholas C. Yang and Adison Martin.

Rezension:

The Wudang YMAA Taijiquan DVD is one of the best releases ever by the YMAA. The YMAA always produces superior quality books and dvds for martial arts both internal and external- and the Wudang Taijiquan DVD is a shining example. When I first learned that Zhou Xuan Yun of Daoistgate.com was creating a Taijiquan DVD, I immediately pre-ordered a copy. When I recieved it in the mail I found that was a personal lesson with a world-class Gongfu Taijiquan Master. Xuan Yun is simply amazing, and his instruction is absolutely phenomenal. I was especially excited about the DVD because I love Wudang Gongfu, and there is very little published educational material available about it. The instruction and demonstration is of the highest quality, and the Taijiquan sequence is both comprehensive and beautiful. Anyone, whether beginner or master will immediately fall in love with this release. As a dedicated Martial Artist, I feel very blessed to live in an era where such sacred tradition and teqhnique are freely and openly taught. Zhou Xuan Yun is a wonderful teacher, and I strongly reccomend this DVD to everyone. --Google

I was very excited to hear about the release of this DVD. Wudang Mountain has always been known as a Taoist and Martial Arts center, and Zhou, Xuan-Yun is a fine representative of the high level of martial arts that have come out of Wudang Mountain. I've seen other martial artists demonstrating various Wudang styles and have been impressed by the effective techniques present in those styles for dealing with violent situations. The coincidence of this release for me is my re-reading of Chronicles of the Tao, written by Deng Ming-Dao. The book chronicles the life of Kwan Saihung, who, in similar fashion to the writer and performer of this DVD, Zhou, Xuan-Yun, trained in a Daoist monastery and later left to travel around China to meet and interact with other martial artists. Zhou is obviously a very skilled martial artist. His enthusiasm, knowledge and expertise are very evident in this DVD. Zhou does not hold back and freely explains and demonstrates the various applications for the postures in the form. His presentation of the Wudang Taijiquan set looks similar to Chen Style and Yang Style Taijiquan. It is very direct and focused and is obviously a fighting art. --Google

Actor biografía:

Zhou has some unique takes on applications for postures such as Needle at the Bottom of the Sea, which he demonstrates as a flowing of one Qin Na application to another. Zhou capably demonstrates how the applications should flow and change as the opponent/adversary reacts and deals with the applications. Zhou also demonstrates how to respond to experienced martial artists who might try neutralizing techniques on the applications. Regardless of how the opponent reacts to the original application, Zhou shows that there is always a linked application that will handle any response.
