If you like the traditional samurai art of fast sword drawing Iaijutsu /Iaido, which originated in medieval Japan, or the 1500 year old authentic inner energy work exercise system of the
Shaolin Xi Sui Jing / Yi Yin Jing / Ba Duan Jing Qi Gong want to learn, private lessons offer a particularly intensive and individually tailored way of practicing.
While Shaolin Qi Gong was traditionally developed by the founder of CHAN Buddhism in China (Bodidharma, Indian warrior monk) to strengthen body and mind, the traditional Japanese "way of the sword/sword drawing" has always been closely related to philosophy and practice of ZEN, which developed in Japan from the imported CHAN Buddhism. From these historical points of contact, a common "meta level" results in the special training of the mind through the practice of ATTENTION and PRECISION: Both disciplines require a high level of concentration and a meditative, inward-looking attitude, while at the same time being open to the outside world. Combination offers of IAIDO and Shaolin Qi Gong are therefore not only possible, but also particularly attractive.
I would be happy to give you an insight into these fascinating arts during a trial lesson. If there is further interest, the exercise modalities will be agreed individually.
