Tai Chi & Kung Fu Spring 2020

Monday, 10 February, 2020 - 13:00 to Friday, 29 May, 2020 - 20:00

TAI CHI

Tai Chi is a martial art that finds its origin in China. Tai Chi is characterised by slow, soft and harmonious movements in combination with breathing techniques. These strengthen the muscles of the body and help to gain a better posture. The breathing techniques help to relax the mind. 

During the course, you learn and practice two different sequences: the 24 posture form and the 42 posture form. Both sequences are widely recognised and put into practice in China and in the rest of the world, as they train the mind and the body through fluid forms to cultivate vital energy (Qi 气).

Resultingly, Tai Chi is the ideal way to release stress, to train and strengthen your body without exageration and to experience Chinese culture in a new and energising way. 

Below you can find an overview of the Tai Chi courses in the Spring 2020 semester by date and location.

KUNG FU

Another Oriental martial art form closely connected to Tai Chi is Kung Fu or Wushu in Chinese. Our Kung Fu course at VUB focuses on the Southern Kung Fu style called 'Southern Fist' or Nanquan 南拳. This style is characterised by stability through broad stances and rapid and powerful movements and hand techniques. Kung Fu helps to train your body in speed, strength and flexibility.
