Welcome to ShanShui

“Be still like a mountain and move like the water in a river. Through practice, your legs will develop roots and you will be able to stand as still as a mountain.
One hand can turn into ten hands, ten hands into thousands, like water surging downstream in a river, it can wash away everything in its way”

Grand Master Tung Ying Jie, 1897-1961

Take the time now to look back at the photos in our great 2018 album in  the Joméo photo album.

2018 was not all that simple for some, but you were always there and that was great !
I am thinking of Lucie who left us and is always in my thoughts.

Whatever happens, “practise, practise and practise again”, says Grand Master Tung Kai Ying.
Tai Chi movements are essential for our health, our well-being & eternal youth !

Happy 10 years of Tai Chi class in Bois Colombes France

Dear All,

bravo to all my students for this school year !

The 2017/2018 “season” was also my 10th year of teaching in Bois Colombes.

I started out with a small class of 10 and now, with the new class in Paris, you are over 100 strong.

Thankyou Maggy & François for having contacted me in 2007 and thanks also to Annie 

who was the then person responsible for the Espace Schiffers center and who had confidence in me.

10 years, 3 levels of classes : Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced

and such regular & motivated students !

Tai Chi Chuan is a discipline which requires patience, perseverance, concentration,

repetition and humility.

In chosing this practice, you decide to take care of yourself and improve you health, your stability, your memory & human potential.

By coming to the classes you also develop the pleasure of meeting, sharing, interacting and progressing together.

Thanks to all my students who were able to come on Saturday 7th July to share a festive moment in the parc des Bruyères, 

as well as those who could not make it but were with us in spirit.

Thankyou to Caryl and Nadège for the lovely cards on the theme of “Shan Shui”, “Mountains & Water”

and the very touching messages from all of you.

Thankyou also for the exceptional envelopes which will be used for the décor of the future Dojo.

Also thankyou for the beautiful books on the Tao and China, the Thai Knife and the bottle of champagne, 

the beautiful bouquet of roses, the bracelet from the Domaine du Taillé & the madeleine cookies.

You really spoiled me !

A special thanks to Vincent for the supers photos of the practice, the demos

and the so delicious picnic hereunder

which you can look at leisurely and relive the wonderful Saturday 7th July which

brought our “season” to a close.

We will be back together as of 18th September for a new Tai Chi Chuan “season” in Bois Colombes and Paris.

Have a great Summer

Tchin, Cheers, Kampai !

Dear All

We are now back from a wonderful week in the Ardèche.

We were blessed by the sun and were able to practise every day in the “Open Air Dojo” facing the hills of the Ardèche.

The venue is inspirational, conducive to concentration & suited to our practice & spiritual renewal.

We practised in natural surroundings from sun up to sundown.

As a group, or solo, complete Form or subtle details, Taiji Gong, martial applications, Tuishou, total Knife Form and Knife duo, méditation – a great programme.

Bravo and thanks to Pascale, Véronique, Etienne and Gérard.

Thanks also to the Domaine du Taillé team, to Jean, Valentin, Nicole & Zora for their warm welcome to this magic place and for the delicious balanced menus, rich in colour and in taste.

We will be back in May 2019 !!
