Beijing Sport University Taijiquan Training 2019 – Teachers Come in All Shapes and Sizes

Tara Brayshaw - Thursday, October 17, 2019

Taijiquan Training in Beijing 2019 – 13 People, One Wheelchair, One Walker, and at least a dozen physical, mental and emotional challenges to overcome. What brought this disparate group together was an unashamed passion, verging on obsession, for Tai Chi. Why mention the wheelchair and the walker? Because the “2 W’s” not only defined us, they taught us so much about ourselves, reinforced what we were learning in our Tai Chi training each day, gave us time to reflect on what it means to study Tai Chi, and most importantly strengthened our understanding of the philosophies behind our beloved Tai Chi. read more

Taijiquan Biomechanics? I’ve had a Workshop Revelation...

Tara Brayshaw - Thursday, March 07, 2019

Taijiquan biomechanics? I’m sure the mere mention of those words would draw blank stares from most people, especially tai chi practitioners. We’ve all had the experience in life when we’re out shopping, where we know in our minds what we want, but we have no idea what the thing we want is called, making it almost impossible to find. Well, a tai chi biomechanics workshop is one of those things. Hearing the name alone might not create an association with anything familiar, but when we discover what it’s all about, we suddenly realise it’s something we’ve been wanting to find for a very long time in our tai chi journey of self-development. read more

JinLi TV Stars – The Living Room – Network 10

Tara Brayshaw - Tuesday, July 17, 2018

JinLi Wushu-Tai Chi was recently approached by the producers of the Channel 10 television program, The Living Room, who were preparing a segment called “Mood Moves”, looking at fun activities that promote both mental and physical health. They wanted to know whether we would be interested in sharing the benefits of Tai Chi with their 1-million plus Australian viewership. Of course, we jumped at the chance. So a group of JinLi’ers braved the winter cold with TV presenter Tiffany Hall, a former Tae Kwon Do Olympian. We really enjoyed sharing our love of martial arts with Tiffany and showing her some Taiji moves. read more

Tara Brayshaw - Monday, February 12, 2018
The New Year begins on February 16 this year and is the Year of the Earth Dog. The Earth element always brings with it a sense of stability and groundedness, which is a relief after the last two Fire years. The Fire years can be a time of great opportunity but decisions need to be made quickly. This year is a time where you can settle down, consolidate and concentrate on what you managed to grab on to in the last two years. read more
