Whoever practiced Tai Chi (Taiji) Qi Gong (Chi Kung) or martial arts like karate, jiu jitsu, hapkido, wing sung or others, have noticed that there are many different styles existing.
In itself it is not so bad that there are so many variations that arose in the course of history from different masters, who put their mark on the discipline.
Variations and nuances make a fascinating landscape, so as in the martials arts and healing.
But we must see to it that the essence is not lost.
One can make different types of mayonnaise, in different flavors, but it has to stay mayonnaise. That is, the base ingredient should always be present.
Essential things in martial arts (so in Tai Chi (Taiji) and Qi Gong (Chi Kung) are: effectiveness, usability, realism, energetically correct (and work), is also applicable for less strong or agile people, etc….
Because many martial arts are often practiced recreational, fine techniques degrade to “street value”, or the effectiveness has been sacrificed to the style faire.
This is obviously associated with the loss of the essence.
From many techniques the essence isn’t known anymore, due to the many transfers between masters and students and their different interpretations.
Sometimes the master died even before he could pass all his secrets or the essence of his style and techniques to his students so that they had to guess afterwards in order to reconstruct the techniques.
Yet there are many righteous and most advanced practitioners looking for the essence of their techniques and their discipline.
For them there is this website!
Our goal is to go to the (mainly energetic) essence of as much as possible techniques of as many as possible disciplines based on the knowledge and experience of different experts.
One can consult the results of this work in 4 different ways:
