with Kathleen Cusick & Dr. Jay Dunbar
- Our 61st San Shou Immersion -
Taiji San Shou, the traditional 88-movement sparring
routine, permits players with the gentlest of intentions to study fighting
dynamics in slow motion—to make a moment last a minute—so as to learn the
difference between internal (energy-based) and external (force-based)
responses. San Shou teaches listening, yielding, sticking, neutralizing,
controlling, and returning energies in the context of conversation rather
than competition. Each participant studies one side as a solo set and
matched to those learning the other side. Individuals register separately, as
we change partners throughout the immersion. San Shou is both enlightening and
fun: expect a breakthrough in your understanding of your solo form, but also
come just to enjoy the circle of energy between two players.
Pre-requisite: one-year minimum solo
form study or permission of the teachers.
