Ross is one of a small number of qualified JDA, (John Ding Academy), instructors teaching Tai Chi Chuan and Chi Kung in Ireland. He has been training under Master Ding since 1997 and has been assisting Master Ding with classes, seminars and retreats across Europe since 2001.

Ross's teaching aims to integrate the life affirming principles found within the ancient Chinese practices of Tai Chi and Chi Kung, with the hectic lifestyles that we all lead today.

This fusion of the ancient and modern worlds is attained through the mindful practice of Tai Chi and Chi Kung on a daily basis. This inner discipline results in the much sought after Strong Body and Still Mind, as often described by Tai Chi texts.

Class structure includes solo and partner work where students are encouraged to work together to mutual benefit. This results in an informal, fun environment where every person has an opportunity to learn from everyone else.

For those interested in the martial aspects of the art, introduction to the practicalities of postures and movements are included. Once basic skills are attained, Tai Chi Chuan as a fighting art can be explored.

JDA Dublin Workshop: Pushing Hands and Sensitivity

Pushing hands is a dynamic two person exercise that helps develop sensitivity, timing and coordination. Pushing hands works to undo a person's natural instinct to resist force with force, teaching the body to connect to a force and redirect it. Training with a partner also allows a student to develop ting jing (listening energy), the sensitivity to feel the direction and strength of a partner's force and thereby avoid or redirect it. In that sense pushing hands is a contract between students to train the defensive and offensive movement principles of their martial art; learning to generate, coordinate and deliver power to another and how to effectively neutralize incoming force

JDA Dublin Workshop: Loosening the Waist

Loosening the waist allows the body to settle and the development of a strong base for firm rooting. This simultaneously allows the energy to settle to the Dan Tien ready for expression.

It is said that if one lacks strength one should look to the waist and lower limbs.

A one day workshop introducing and developing techniques that will help loosen the waist. Practice of form and partner work techniques that will embed this principle and develop expression of energy

Experience

My Tai Chi Journey

I have been learning Tai Chi Chuan from Master John Ding for the last 13 years, in this time I have managed to glimpse and even touch what Tai Chi has to offer.

I want all my students to be able to experience the same profound joy I feel when I practice my Tai Chi, alone and with others.
