KUNG FU WORKSHOP FOR TAICHI STUDENTS -
HUEN KEUN (HUNG GAR) TIGER FORM SUNDAY 5TH AUGUST 2012
 
 On Sunday 5th August 2012, for a group of our taichi students who had learned the 108 Yang Form
we held a Huen Keun (Hung Gar) Tiger Form workshop at :
 
Concorde Hall Epsom
 
Taught by Instructor Stephen Lim, the form was taught to introduce the
Taichi students to other forms of Kungfu, which appeared physically harder, and more demanding.
 
Even though many of them had never done KungFu before, the Taichi students did very well, picking up the form quickly.  It appeared through learning the 108 Yang Taichi form (which takes usually more than two years) had helped immensely with picking up the tiger form .
 
The Workshop was much enjoyed and we hope to do others in future.  We may put a video clip of the workshop we did on our site soon.

WELCOME TO LIM'S TAICHI 

 

 

 

"...do not be afraid of moving slowly...be afraid of standing still..."

Lim's Taichi was founded by the Late Grandmaster Akira Lim and is continued by his son

Stephen Lim and students.

 

 

 

  

 

 HISTORY

The first original class taught by the Late Grandmaster Akira Lim, was at a Scout Hut in Chessington, next to Buckland Infant School (now Castle Hill School) and also at a hall next to Hook Library.  It was then spread out through Surrey County Council by Grandmaster Akira Lim and students, through Weybridge, Cobham, Esher and Dorking. 

It has also been taught at Health Centers in Richmond, YMCA and David Lloyds and other places around Epsom, New Malden and Guildford.  Through it's involvement within the Chinese community, it has also been taught at the London South West Chinese Community Association in Wimbledon and Mitcham.  

 

WHAT IS TAICHI ?

Tai Chi is a Chinese martial art known for its slow fluid style and soothing movements. It's an internal Chinese martial art often practiced for health reasons. Tai chi typically is practiced for a variety of reasons: its soft martial techniques, demonstration competitions, health and longevity, balance, co-ordination and sense of well being. Consequently, a multitude of training forms exist, both traditional and modern, which correspond to those aims.

Today, Tai Chi has spread worldwide and some of its training forms are familiar to Westerners as the slow motion routines that groups of people practice together every morning in parks around the world, particularly in China.

 

LIM'S TAICHI

Lim's Taichi is predominantly influenced by Yang Taichi.  The first main form taught is the Yang 108 Long Form, which can take up to 2 years to learn!

 .

 

 

 

The main emphasis in the class is to work on quality of movement, be patient, relaxed and to let go of everything and only be concentrated on the now in the taichi class.

Some of the other forms taught within the class include the 24, 42 and 48 fist forms.  Chen and Liu He Taichi, 32 and 42 straight sword, Broadsword etc.

We also practice taichi qigong within the class.

 Taught in a friendly environment, you are encouraged to learn taichi at your own pace and for your own benefit and also importantly to enjoy yourself in the process.
