Summer camp in Sweden 2023!

Empty yourself, eyes clear & hands ready.

It is time again!

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

Besides the formal syllabus, this year will be focused on the sub-systems within our style in particular Gyrating Arms, Running Thunder Hands and Flying Flower Palm. If you are up for additional Nei Kung exercises this is the place and time.
We will spend thorough time revising Fomrs and our foundational drills putting weight on the qualitative aspect connecting the “inner” with the “outer” aspects. This will mean focus on Hand form, our traditional Weapons, Pushing Hands, Nei Kung and Applications from the vantage point mentioned. For those interested and where it is applicable there will be instructor teaching, discussing methodology and using models for learning and teaching.

The camp is open for everyone – from beginners to advanced students and teachers.

We will dig broad and deep into the “Square, Triangle & Circle” of the style.
