Vsevolod Vlaskine has been learning
Taiji Quan from Master Chong since 2001, studying Yang (Zheng Man Qing) Style Taiji
Quan and Push Hands. Master Chong accepted him as a disciple by
traditional ceremony and granted him the instructor's
certificate in 2007.
Currently he lives in Sydney and regularly
visits Singapore for more guidance from Master Chong.
When teaching, Vsevolod uses a highly
systematic and gradual approach learnt from Master Chong. The curriculum
for the beginners includes warm-up and loosening exercises to develop
balance, stability, relaxation, coordination and correctness of postures;
basics of Tai Chi theory, a few important breathing exercises; the 37-step
routine; push-hands (tui-shou). Supporting materials (DVDs and Master
Chong's book) are available.
No regular classes are running at the
moment, but personal tuition is possible in Glebe.
