When I started practicing martial arts, I would have dreamed of the possibility of learning Gong Fu in an online class. Therefore it is a heart-whish of mine to not only teach at the academy in Berlin but also in other frames like at our Hidden Turtle Online Platform.
In January 2024, I will start there a new online class series, which will be all about the absolute foundations of martial arts: Sitting and Standing Meditation.
The class will start on January 22nd, 2024, and will take place every second week on Monday for one hour (18:00-19:00 Berlin Time Zone). For registration simply register on the Hidden Turtle:
Tai Ji Quan (Tai Chi Quan) is an old martial and meditation art. An art that can teach us to move with ourselves and with a partner… … to get efficient in combat and our daily life. … to find our way back from the 10,000 things to the one inside us. It is an intuitive yet highly developed system that allows us to observe and practice in a very systematic way. Join our approach of traveling back from the 10,000 to the one in our upcoming Teacher Training Season starting October 2023. The program is held online as well as offline in the academy! Beginners are welcome!
In this video, we show you some of our practical applications originating in basic principles and movements out of your Wudang Principles Ba Gua Zhang practice.
Over time, Ba Gua Zhang transformed from an ancient circle walking meditation into a formidable martial art renowned for its circular footwork, intricate hand techniques, and strategic maneuvering. Embodying the principles of change and adaptability, Ba Gua emphasizes fluidity, agility, and simultaneous attack and defense.

Join Nico 03/04 June 2023 a whole weekend, when he will dive into the basics of Internal Martial Arts. The true secrets of any art lie in its basics! Regarding Inner Gong Fu that means that only when we start to understand how to position our body in order to center our mind and body, we can learn to connect all our joints and become one unit. On the road we get better and better in observing our body and releasing it. Like that Martial Arts originating out of the Wudang mountains become much more than just a fighting art. It becomes an art for cultivating health and an inner smile with every basic practice.
TOPICS OF THE SEMINAR: -Basic Standing Qi Gong and body and mind alignment -Basic Walking Meditation and centering in motion -Basic Kung Fu Stances and how to create stability and power through softness -Basic body mobility exercises to support the inner as well as outer opening process (Pi Gua) For registration visit: https://www.xuan-gongfu.de/Seminar/gong-fu-basics-seminar/

Ba Gua is the art of circles, spirals and transformation. An art that has its origin in an old and simple Taoist circle-walking meditation and has since then developed into a full martial, movement and healing art. But Ba Gua wouldn’t be Ba Gua if its growing and transforming would be done and over. Take part in our Ba Gua journey, in our regular classes, and upcoming seminars or go all in at our Ba Gua Fulltime Month!:
Tui Shou is the art of listening, softness and balance.
The 5 Elements are a tool to observe the world in order to reestablish balance as well.
This makes these two tools a perfect fit and our last workshop a space all about balance and flow establishment! Yet a tool is just a tool, lying in the corner and getting dusty if not inspired handy crafter take it into their hand with the intention to create. Therefore I am so grateful for especially all these inspired crafters that joined us during the last days and brought the tools to beat and life. In this sense another time I want to say thank you to everyone joining for filling the space with your energy and creativity, bringing flow to the body and the hall, challenging and supporting each other and most of all never getting tired to do all that with endless of joy!
