Wu style Taiji Workshop: The Activation and Cultivation of Shen and Yi
Shifu Clayton Shiu
October 12th, 2018
1:00pm - 5:00pm
Dear Portland, OR Participants,
Shifu Clayton Shiu is excited to come to Portland to teach his Wu style Taiji method. WU style Taiji is the smallest frame type of taiji and incorporates and preserves many small circle applications and martial arts. Shifu Shiu will introduce the internal components of Shen and Yi, how to distinguish them and how to apply them in martial arts application and in dealing with life’s daily struggles. This workshop is open to all taiji and internal practitioners, as well as beginners. It will stress more experiential feeling and sensations than form.
Dr. Shiu is an internal arts Shifu and lineage holder in the Yin Cheng Gong Fa System of Great Grandmaster Wang Pei Sheng, who began practicing Northern Shaolin and Taiji at 12 years of age. He became an indoor Disciple under Master Zhang Yun since 1996 and Opened his Door to accept disciples since 2007. He specializes in Wu Style Taiji, Yin, and Liu style Ba Gua Zhang, Xing-Yi Quan, and Bai Yuan Shi style Tong Bei Quan.
Clayton has been teaching Gongfu and has a school in Manhattan since 1999. He also has been receiving special training in Beijing with Master Zhao Za Ren of Beijing in Wu Style Taiji with an emphasis on Shen and Yi training, Tui Shou and other YCGF arts from 2013 to 2016 while working on his Ph. D. in China.
