This slideshow requires JavaScript.

31 july – 4 august 2019!
It is time for the annual Wudang PTCC training camp in one of Swedens most beautiful spots.

Join us for 5 days of intensive training in Forms, Pusing Hands, Applications, Sparring and Nei Kung.  Last few years we had participants from Denmark, France, Germany, Norway, Italy, Czech Republic and the Netherlands.

Prepare for intensive training, good company and a great time.
From dawn til dusk classes of  Nei Kung, Handforms, Weapons, Applications, Pushing Hands, sparring, Chi Kung, auxiliary training and theory.

We will work with specific themes, especially triangulating the aspects of  timing – distance – positioning in everthing we do this year. Sounds easy? Well, it is often ovelooked and results in poor performance of techniques and ability.

There will be plenty of possibilities for you to choose what you want to focus at. There will be a group specifically aiming at competitions for those who have that focus. But don´t worry – if you are not into that there will be plenty of other things to choose from.

The main focus in my way of teaching is to “connect the dots”. We have “Five Pillars of Wudang Tai Chi Chuan” and not seldom they are not as related as they should be in our everyday practice. Practically this means to switch between a micro & macro levels when working with techniques, methods and principles.
Methods can vary, principles are few.

The venue is Borghamns Strand, just at the beach of big lake Vättern. Omberg mountain is nearby and the popular city of Vadstena where one of Swedens best preserved castles from the 15th century is located. It is well worth a visit!

Accomodation and fees – depending on availability prices might differ a bit – book early!
For those prefering staying at the hostel prices are approxamately:
Dormitory 225 kronor/night
Double room 450 – 540 kronor/night/person
