T'ai Chi Chuan
Boost your energy levels and reduce your stress levels through 'meditation in motion'. The Chen Pan-Ling style of T’ai Chi taught in the Bayswater Martial Arts and Yoga Centre is smooth, controlled and graceful.
It will improve your coordination, strengthen the supporting muscles that stabilise your body during movement and increase your ‘Chi’ (life force). The Centre is fortunate to have instructors who have a direct lineage to the founder of this unique style of T’ai Chi.
Our Tai Chi and Chinese Internal Arts Teacher, Shifu (Master Instructor) Dan Djurdjevic, has regularly made trips to train with Chen Yun-Ching, son of the legendary Chen Pan-Ling, since 2005 and in January 2009 he was given the rare honour of becoming his "baishi" or "inner circle student" in an elaborate ceremony held in Kaohsiung, Taiwan.
Dan has two senior students who have also received this honour in 2012, Andrew Mack and Idham Mukmin. Andrew also teaches at the Centre.
Becoming an inner door student is an invitation rarely extended in the Chinese martial tradition and acceptance is both an honour and a responsibility, since the "bai shi" must undertake to absorb all the teachings of the master for preservation and dissemination to future generations.
Come and join Shifu Dan, Idham and Andrew and enjoy learning this ancient Chinese martial art of health and ‘meditation in motion’.
