The decision to teach a Chinese martial art online was not an easy one. To be honest, it took me four years to accumulate enough material and experience in online teaching. What I’ve found is that it makes little sense to just provide context-free instructions or videos for everyone to pick and choose as they please. What’s needed is careful guidance and instruction from the teacher. But above all, as a teacher, I need to listen and understand how you’re receiving and interpreting the content, making this online course very personal. The focus of this course will be Ziranmen, a Chinese martial art that, like Taiji Quan, Bagua Zhang, and Xingyi Quan, belongs to the so-called internal styles. Although Ziranmen may appear extremely simple to learn at first glance, don’t be fooled. I want to be upfront: the skills are difficult to acquire, and the exercises are demanding both physically and mentally. However, they are designed to be simple enough to easily integrate into your daily routine. About the lessons: Most of the exercises I will provide will be personalized videos and content based on the group’s questions and level. Each group will consist of a maximum of 15 participants, and a new training video will be uploaded every week. This way, your training library will grow continuously without overwhelming you with content. Registration is through Patreon, and then through the “Gongfu Professional” tier. Additionally, there will be a Q&A session included in the course on every first Friday of the month. These sessions offer you the opportunity to ask questions, clear up any uncertainties, and receive direct feedback. It’s an excellent way to personalize the online instruction and ensure you’re getting the most out of the course. What I won’t be doing here: Content about traditional medicine, deep Daoist philosophy, magic, and energetics will not be part of my teachings. This doesn’t mean that I consider traditional Chinese medicine to be useless or Daoism unimportant. I have my own beliefs in these areas, and part of that is my decision not to teach them. I’m looking forward to guiding you on this exciting journey!
