Ivo Marvan

Ivo comes from Prague, from the Czech Republic. He started learning the art of Tai Chi Chuan in 1989.
Since 1991, until now has been learning in the school Center of Taoist Arts Golden Hill of Tomasz Nowakowski. Since 1995 he has been in this school as an instructor.

He practices the styles Yang (Tomasz Nowakowski) and Chang Sam Fung Tai Ki Kung (Dr Ming Wong C. Y, Tomasz Nowakowski).

Since 2012, he has co-organized the International Push Hands meeting in Prague.

Workshops at our meeting are too short to learn new techniques that would be useful for your practice. That’s why I want to show you how we work with some of Tai Chi Chuan’s inner concepts in our school. The main goal is to look at your practice from another angle, with fresh eyes. I will be delighted when the concepts will be useful to you, and you will be able to explore them in your style, at your school and in your own practice.
We will work with simple individual forms, improving the stationary position in the pairs
and taking into account the students’ advancement also with free push-hands.
Part of the workshops will be also cheerful pairing exercises that will show some principles
in a non-confrontational environment.

Studied concepts:
Opening and closing joints (working with body structure)
How we work to open joints in our school.
How to use this concept in push-hands (in contrast to Qinna techniques).
How to use push-hands to open the joints.
Feeling and listening
There are many kinds of listening and feeling is the most accurate of them.
