Biography: Luciano, Italian, lives in Spain from 2000. He started studying taijiquan for the first time in Kunming, China twice in ‘97 and ‘99, altogether for about 8 months. Then, back to Italy, met M. Chen Xiaowang and studied with him from 2000 to 2008, meanwhile he also studied with his nephew M. Chen Bing and with M. Jan Silberstorff. He went several times to Chenjiagou in summer time to deepen his knowledge. In 2007 he became member of the XX generation of the Chen family, disciple of M. Chen Xiaowang.
Notwithstanding that, after his meeting with Master Gianfranco Pace of the I.T.K.A. (International Taijiquan Kung Fu Association) he felt so much fulfilled with his way of understanding and transmitting Taijiquan that he decided quitting all he knew to re-start his practise under the guide of his new Master. Now he’s representing I.T.K.A. in Spain.

Topic: We want to work on yielding, pushing with a relaxed force. If you can yield, you have the ability to neutralize the opponents force. Our exercises are fix push hands and semi-free push hands. The advantage of Semi-free Pushing Hands is, that you can learn to listen and sense how your partner behaves. Winning is only secondary as you change roles after 5 minutes.
We are using 3 different stances for this kind of pushing hands.
