We had another great Q&A session talking about some theory and also about some problems students encountered. This is just an extract of the longer version but maybe you would like to check it out. 

Talk is about silk reeling concepts, problems in basic silk reeling exercises, about the "beisikou" concept, about weight changes, knee health and more. Some parts which seemed of more interest to our students only were taken out, but I think there are parts which might also be interesting for others and maybe even spark some interesting discussion. Questions usually come from all levels, from teachers as well as beginners, but it is a very casual format so I think everybody can join and have a good time :-)

The questions and answers sessions are primarily for students of Nabil but also open for everyone who wants to join and who has some questions on Chen Taijiquan in general. If you wanna join next time just go here to the next Q&A session.
