Our video lessons of Shibashi set 1 are not just “follow me” demo type videos. (You can get that from any Youtube video.) Instead you will be taught numerous relevant qigong concepts to incorporate into your practice in order to fully understand and perform this set for maximum benefit. You’ll learn some easy to remember rules that will allow you to stop thinking while performing the set in order to maximize the benefit of a lowered brain wave state. I will detail how to maximize flow by utilizing the concept of substantial and insubstantial. Plus you’ll learn how to activate your laogong points and use that connection to enhance your practice.
In the year 2000 Sifu Rod changed his focus from a lifetime of external martial arts training to internal arts training and began taking steps toward the pursuit of self mastery. After a multi-year apprenticeship under the tutelage of a senior instructor recognized by the Canadian Taijiquan Federation Rod was the only participant in the program to be awarded his instructor honours. In 2010 the Barrie Tai Chi & Qigong training club was opened and started accepting students. The curriculum of the club reflects Sifu Rod’s passion for teaching all aspects of taijiquan training including the healing, martial, energetic and esoteric aspects.
Sifu Rod is a Qigong Master and a 5th Duan Master of Taijiquan Fa. He has taught hundreds of students basic Tai Chi and Qigong and was recently named Internal Arts Master of the year for 2014 by the AMAWW. Sifu Rod is also in the process of training new instructors in order to spread the benefits of these wonderful internal arts.
