GRTC Canberra is the Australian branch of Master Scott M Rodell's Great River Taoist Center. We teach Yanjia Michuan Taijquan, traditional Chinese swordsmanship and Manchurian Archer, classes are lead by Rodell Loashi's student David McLeary.
The Taijiquan curriculum includes: push hands, san shou (free fighting), traditional swordsmanship (primarily the use of the Jian however it also includes Miao Dao and Dao), the use of the long spear (Chang Qian). Yanjia Michuan Taijiquan is taught as a combat art and practical applications are taught from the beginning of a students training. The intensity of the application training increases as a student progresses until they are using full speed and power with no protective equipment.
