Hao Style Taijiquan Research Institute is dedicated to preserving and passing on the internal system as passed down by Master Liu Jishun who is the longest serving and representative of the the Hao family as authorised by Hao Shaoru.
The institute is made up of disciples of the last inheritor chosen to uphold the art, responsible for teaching and maintaining the transmission of the true Hao lineage.
Never has the true direct lineage come into public domain from Wu Yuxiang through to Hao Shaoru until Master Liu taught openly in an international capacity.
'No matter what shape you’re in, martial arts is a great way to drop extra pounds, learn to defend yourself, and develop personal and physical discipline'
Teacher and coach Ugur Osman has dedicated and spent over 25 years of his life in learning and training various Chinese martial and healing arts. He has been awarded disciple status into the Wu Style Hao family Taijiquan lineage. Thus qualifying him as the most senior teacher in Europe for this style of Taijiquan. He is also an International Jing Wu Kung Fu medallist gained in China, and has produced several British National medallists.
His research, passion and devotion takes him to China on a regular basis to progress, develop and help propagate the arts. He believes that only through true transmission of an art, can the instructions laid down from the ancient masters be understood. Only then can proper results be obtained.
The Hao style syllabus includes sets of exercises of varying length and complexity. These exercises are informed by a detailed theoretical foundation. Broadly, the practice of Hao Taijiquan has two parts:
- The first part consists of practicing the external forms – the movement of the posture and the torso methods (shenfa). Emphasis is placed on correct anatomical alignment and integrated movement. This foundation allows the practitioner to fully access the power inherent in his or her body.
- The second part focuses on internal structure. In this stage the mind (yi) becomes primary. Taijiquan theory states that where the mind (yi) reaches, the qi reaches, and the energy (jing) follows. Awareness must be unbroken, so that the qi and the energy are unbroken. In a state of utmost calmness the mind is highly focused in the body, continually checking that all parts of the body are natural and relaxed. With increased sensitivity the practitioner achieves a high level of postural control, using the mind to sink the muscle and qi, expand the posture, and open and close the joints.
In paired exercises this awareness, sensitivity and structure is directed at a partner, contesting balance and control. Taijiquan’s martial skills are developed in this manner.
All plans are billed monthly and can be upgraded or downgraded at any time.
