Taikiken “Natural Tuning ”


15 June - 22 June 2019

28 July - 03 August 2019

In this workshop we will work from the foundation of the internal martial art, Naikaken (neijiaquan.)

The axis is balancing your subtle energy components of mind and body. You will learn how to control your subtle body movements by using an image (inen or yi nian.)

Rooting is back to the future; improve your skills by integrating the internal martial art concept of naikaken. Enjoy Taikiken (yiquan), as Kenichi Sawai teached it back in the early nineteen-seventies.

Train in and with nature as it is meant to be, optimize your natural skills and apply them intuitively.  

Taikiken is not only effective in a real fight, but can be applied  in everything you undertake in your daily life.


The program offers a broad set of Taikiken exercises:

Ritsuzen,  Hanzen, Iron shirt, (zhan zhuang) standing meditation postures

Yuri (Shi li), testing the strength developed through ritsuzen

Neri (zou bu shi li) kneading, hai footwork with yuri movements

Hakkei ( fa li) exercises to use force in an ‘explosive’ way.

Suishuo (tui shou), pushing hands

Tanshu (shadow boxing, health-dance)

Coordination training: step-reach, body-reach, arm-reach in one


Ritsuzen, yuri, hai and neri are the most important exercises to develop the ‘force’ (kongen ryoku or hun yuan li).
