I recently returned from the 14th Push Hands Meeting in Hannover (Click here for my review) where I spent some quality social time with Barry McGinlay and Emma North of Tai Chi Life and Gianfranco Pace & Margherita Padalino of the International Taijiquan KungFu Association. We also discussed the possibility of adding some additional aspects to this year’s Tai Chi Caledonia, one of the suggestions being early morning ‘boot camp’ for those who have a mind to. We’ll be talking further over the next few weeks or so….
Meetings like the Push Hands event also allows me the opportunity to see friends and instructors old and new like Paul Silfverstrale, Sonja Schillo and Henk Jannsen. Lau K King, a 20 years+ close student of Huang Sheng Shyan whom I hadn’t seen for a few years and I spent some pleasant times together and we could well see him at a future Tai Chi Caledonia soon.
