Students of the Competition Team of WDP Germany took part at the 26th German Wushu Championships in Germany and rocked: 3x Gold and 1x Bronze. The secret is quality, its dedication... its faith... its destiny... nothing else.
Baoting is the perfect place, if you want a chilled day-off-from the Academy, relax and have some good food without meeting crowds of people. Though it is the administrative centre of the county our school belongs to, the city combines a very relaxed atmosphere with a beautiful city square and some nice places to have good Chinese food. It is also a good place to buy clothes or accesoires of the local Li- and Miao-people. And watch out: They even seem to have Rap battles here!
To reach the city you just need to hop on one of the busses leaving about every 15 min from San Dao near our Academy. The journey is about 7-10 RMB for one ride and takes approximately one hour.
Wushu – yi jia! - ONE big martial arts family!
This week our Academy was visited by Chen Master Ting Xiao He and Mr. Xi Pin Hui from Sanya Wushu Association. Ting Xiao He, Xi Pin Hui and our students all showed some of their skills, before we sat together to talk and exchange thoughts and experiences.
Although it might sometimes be difficult to find the right words in each others language, the joint love for martial arts gives an easy way to communicate.
Stretching and getting flexible is another fundamental element of every good training. This week we started a period of intensive stretching programme at the Academy.
If you want to go for it by yourself, you can keep a few things in mind that might help you in your daily training: Search some pictures in the internet, that can motivate you and show you, what is possible. Hang them somewhere, where you can watch them daily. Visualize yourself doing the same things in the same perfect way. Set yourself clear shortterm and longterm goals, that you want to reach (like head to toe stretching). Tell others about your plans or write them down and give yourself a period of time within that you want to reach them. This helps you to be more serious about it, especially if you are training on your own.
Go for it and have fun:)! And dont forget to transfer your flexibility to life also, if you like :)!
Meditation and Qi Gong are essential elements of the training in all four branches, among which you can choose at the WDP China Academy: WDP Classic, WDP Combat, Internal MMA and Nei Gong.
Its not only a set of movements and exercises, but from there it sinks step by step into daily life: How do you react, when you do not get, what you initially expected? How well can you adapt to changing situations and let go of your old habits and thoughts? How good can you preserve your inner balance, when something happens, that you did not want to happen?
Having built up a good foundation in skills, structure and bodymotion, our more advanced students are now ready to go more and more deep into the training of weapons. Yesterday they started their first day of spear training. The spear, which is also called king of the long-range-weapons, builds up intense overall body-power and is also a good instrument for improving Fajin power. In November we will start with the training of the queen of short-range-weapons: the sword! The training will start with an intensive one-month introduction Camp Wudang One Sword. If you want to join us for the Camp, make sure to contact us fast, as the deadline is running out.
