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

Welcome Master Tung Chen Wei  at Neuilly France

More informations

Dear all,

I hope you're on top form.
I come back from the Alps with a new video, for the website.
Following the request of my students here are the vidéo of the Taiji Gong or Tai Chi Gong or Tai Chi Kung !

The Tai Chi Gongs were created by  Grand Master Tung Kai Ying in homage to his Father, Grand Grand Master Tung Hu Ling.

The Tai Chi Gongs are a chain of nine movements derived from the slow chain, called the Form, which are practised in a static position with legs bent.
It can also be practised in a erect stance and used as a warm-up or a learning exercise.
This exercise allows beginners to understand that the movement come from the waist, to develop a firm stance, verticality, the feeling of a circle and the circulation of energy, and helps to memorise Tai Chi Chuan.
After practising Tai Chi Gong, you feel more firmly « rooted » in the ground, legs feel stronger, the spine elongated and the back is naturally straight without effort.
The body is relaxed, the circulation is stimulated and the rib cage is opened up. Regular practice greatly strengthens the legs and one can go lower and slower in the slow Form and so increase the pleasure of the practice.

I wish good practice to all my students and to all Tai Chi friends visitors of the  site !

See you soon, practice again march 12 !


All the best

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 !
