What is Chun Yuen Quan?


Chun Yuen Quan is a very special treasure from China. 
It has a history in Shaolin Temple, but if this makes you think of hard and external exercises that only the young can manage, then think again.
Traditional skills are very balanced so everyone can do them, otherwise they would not have stood the test of time.

 Master Michael Tse learnt this skill from his Sifu Master Wu Chun Yuen who learnt it from his Sifu, Wang Ping.
Master Wang Ping was famous in the Beijing Opera and kept the skill traditional. This tradition martial art skill meant it considers posture and line of body. A kick is not just with the leg and a punch not just with the arm but the part relates to the whole. In the form Xing Shou, we punch in horse stance. The left hand relates to the right leg and the right hand relates to the left leg. This helps to balance the whole body.

Chun Yuen Quan concentrates on the correct posture of the body so that when bone, joint and muscle are all balanced, then Jing, Qi and Shen will develop. Good posture promotes positve Qi and health. Bad posture will affect the internal organs, the mind and will promote bad health. 

Practising Chun Yuen Quan will make your body look good and strong even when we get older. It also makes the body light, not heavy. When we feel heavy and tired and do not feel like moving a lot, then it means that circulation is poor and that there is not enough Qi in the body. Chun Yuen Quan is good at making the body light and so you will feel younger and healthier. Chinese martial art does not just develop muscle but develops the bones. If the bones are strong the muscles will natually grow.


I know that there are a lot of people who really like the Chun Yuen skill and who feel really good after they practice it.  You may think you feel to old or to out of shape to try but actually, if you just take it easy and practice the gentle version, you discover you body becomes fit very quickly. You will find  that you can even feel better than you did when you were young.

Students comments: 
I really enjoyed Sigong Mike Baker's visit to Beccles. I learnt a lot from him polishing two of my qigong forms. He gave some great advice and pointed out some very useful (and subtle) things.
 I look forward to incorporating it all into my practise.
Thank you,
Martin 



"It was with great anticipation that we awaited Sigong's third annual visit to our class in Beccles. As usual the wait was definitely worth it. It is amazing at how Sigong is able to explain the subtleties of Wing Chun and Qigong in a such a simplistic and easy to understand way. Each question was answered in depth and with a demonstration. Sigong's frame belies his power which is incredible. In one Wing Chun demonstration he performed a simple push that felt like I'd been knocked over by a small car...amazing!

The clarity that we learned with regards to Wing Chun and Qigong was very important. These tiny little adjustments make all the difference to our forms and it is astounding how you manage to always find something that you'd never really noticed before when watching Sigong.

The only complaint that we have is that someone seems to be moving the clock hands forward, as the time went so fast that we couldn't quite believe that two hours had gone by in what seemed like the space of a moment.

We are looking forward to Sigong's return visit next year, and look forward to learning more about the arts that we love so much whether it be Wing Chun, Chun Yuen or Qigong. Many thanks for your help as always Sigong, and many thanks to Sifu for arranging the seminar.

Kind Regards
Eric and June Paule 


I learnt alot from Sigong's visit. Now I have to try to put into practice what I have learnt.
Stewart


Another great Seminar, I was able to see the nuances of Wing Chun from a different perspective.
More please!

'Really lovely to see Sifu back for his third year. Sifu managers to relay simply how forms should be and so the learning process is deepened for the experience. Much to digest.

Health Skill for 2013

Qigong in some form has been around in China for 4.000 years. Wild Goose Qigong over 1800 years. You don't have to be a Buddist or Daoist to study it, only to turn up at the class and try something new.
It's amazing how quickly the body responds to Dayan Qigong to begin to improve your health. Working on the meridians, channels and accupunture points using simple breath and movement exercises,one gradually becomes accustom to a new way of being.
It helps to improve one posture, circulation, flexibility and bring a deeper understanding of what relaxation is all about, not intellectually but physically within the body.
Yes I know it's hard to believe I thought that too when I went to my first class, I was cynic then, especially as I could barely touch my knees when I bent over and watching the teacher being so flexi and bendy and then saying 'you'll be able to do this if you do Wild Goose Qigong' was hard to believe. Over time I'm glad to say I can do what she did, and more and it make me feel great. It has given me a purpose to living and enjoying living in my body though of course it's a health skill that needs to be practice daily to really get the benefits. 
It has become a way of life for me knowing it can keep me healthy and free of stiffness.
I feel I have been given an oppitunity to fully partake of life without saying 'it's my age you know, can't do what I use to do' Excuse me.... You'll see on the posters advertising Wild Goose Qigong  'Beginners Welcome.
That's all that's required to learn to begin learning. I seen many small mircles of healing; improved flexiblity, circulation, relaxation, better sleeping at night, better posture,improved energy levels and so much more.
It's really a journey of discovery to returning to better health.
