T’ai Chi, Chi Kung and self-defense workshop (FOR WOMEN ONLY) conducted by Rodrigo Antonio Uribe

T'ai chi ch'uan is an internal Chinese martial art practised for both its defence training and its health benefits. The concept of the taiji  appears in both Taoist and Confucian Chinese philosophy, where it represents the fusion of Yin and Yang into a single ultimate, represented by the taijitu symbol. 

The study of t'ai chi primarily involves three aspects:

  • Health: Its training concentrates on relieving the physical effects of stress on the body and mind. 
  • Meditation: The focus and calmness cultivated by the meditative aspect of t'ai chi is seen as necessary in maintaining optimum health.
  • Martial art:The ability to use t'ai chi as a form of self-defense in combat  is the study of appropriate change in response to outside forces, the study of yielding to an incoming attack rather than attempting to meet it with opposing force.
    Qigong or chi kung, is a practice of aligning breath, movement, and awareness for exercise, healing, and meditation. With roots in Chinese medicine, martial arts, and philosophy, qigong is traditionally viewed as a practice to cultivate and balance qi (chi) or what has been translated as "intrinsic life energy".
  •  Qigong exercises have three components: a posture (moving or stationary), breathing techniques and mental focus on guiding chi through the body. They are considered to be both exercise and a type of alternative medicine 
    In this basic 6 day course participants will learn 24 movements in 3 directions of Tai Chi, 6 basic positions of Chi kung and ‘8 grips’ in the self defense techniques of  how to defend against a person holding you from the back or front.   
    Rodrigo  learnt Tai Chi at the center for Oriental Studies in Colombia and started teaching 11 years ago. He practices and teaches the simplified form of tai chi. He will focus primarily on posture, relaxation and  how to concentrate the chi and the martial arts applications of Tai Chi, also incorporating martial art moves from Aikido and Kung Fu.
