I have been very fortunate the past several years in order to gain the superb training experience with Jamen Zacharias.
It has been a wonderful bounty for me to be in his presence when we have been able to train and talk and his current teachings are an amazing value. We have been studying the “Path of Rest” through some methods of locks and effective dancing. I call it dance because you can do as you feel.
The philosophies behind Jamen’s arts are astounding and I could only scratch the surface while not doing them justice. I hope to air more of his own writings and thoughts as they become available in full or in part.
The key for myself and my own focus is that each motion drives to the very root of what its intentions are. Hopefully without badly paraphrasing Jamen, the foundation and function of most everything has preceded its form. To add my own, the typical tai chi in the park is form in the park. But tai chi has a function which cannot be fully explored through the form alone.
I invite those who have trained in similar philosophies and arts to get in touch here or on friendster, hi5 or myspace via email@example.com. It is an amazing community and I would find it nothing but a benefit to better from your experience.
