Event Details

I Liq Chuan: Butterfly Form

Pre-requisites: No previous experience is required to attend. This workshop is open to all participants! All concepts and principles will be reviewed.

Zhong Xin Dao I Liq Chuan foundation training includes two short forms, the “21 Form” and the “Butterfly Form”. The forms were designed as vehicles through which the student may learn to see, recognize and realize the principles of Nature in action.

21 formThe Butterfly Form teaches you to coordinate the Five Qualities at higher speeds. This second form is more explosive, with a different rhythm than the 21 Form, and many changes in tempo. Also known as the “Fa Jin Form” (“Power Issuing Form”), the Butterfly Form teaches you to release force.

In this workshop we will review the Butterly Form Choreography as well as look at applications for selected movements, highlighting the principles.
This will be an ongoing series, designed to review applications for the entire sequence.
