IT WAS CERTAINLY THE INTENT, WHETHER IT BE A TIMELY RETURN TO THE ROOT OF OUR WORK, A MORE EMBODIED UNDERSTANDING OF THE NEIGONG, A DEVELOPING OF OUR LINEAGE-METHOD SWORD FORM INTO ITS COMBAT HERITAGE, OF BAGUA INTO ITS CONSTANT CHANGE PRINCIPLES OR OF A RARE 3RD DOOR LOOK INTO THE PROCESS OF NEIDAN, ‘SIMPLY’ THE REFINED PRODUCT OF SOUND FUNDAMENTALS AND EMBODIED NEIGONG SKILLS ..
THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT MOST OF THIS WORK CAN BE FOLLOWED UP BY THE VARIOUS TEACHING STUDENTS OF OUR SCHOOLS IN EUROPE, AND KEITH (BRIGHTON, UK) HAS ALSO GENEROUSLY OFFERED TO HOLD DEDICATED WEEKEND WORKSHOPS FOR JUST THIS PURPOSE IN ALL BRANCHES OF OUR SCHOOL FOR THE REST OF THE YEAR, SO IN CZECH, GERMANY, AUSTRIA AND ENGLAND.
