Heya Majc ... It's not complete yet ... a long way off. I work on the chapters as I feel inspired. I will probably start posting chapter by chapter in my personal practice... Updated 09 Nov · 0 comments

About Me

Stuart Shaw

(a.k.a. Stigweard)

Age: 38

Residence: Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia

Occupation: Taijiquan Teacher

Taijiquan Bio

1994 - present: Student of Chen Man Ch'ing Tajiquan through Sifu Lindsay Smith, student of Teo Ah Keng, student of Master Sia Mok Tie, student of Master Huang Sheng Shyan, student of Grandmaster Chen Man Ch'ing.

1998 - 2007: Student of traditional Yang Style Tajiquan through Sifu Roger Bastick, student of Master Chu King-Hung, student of Master Yang Shou-chung.

Through his own inspiration and Daoist research Stuart has founded the "Golden Rose Taijiquan School" (金玫瑰太极拳) which he teaches privately and also conducts free-of-charge public classes through the Pureland Buddhist Learning College (est. by Ven Master Chin Kung) in Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia.

Daoist Studies Bio

Student of the teachings of Master Ni Hua Ching since 1994 and formal student of The College of Tao based on Master Ni's teachings since 2006.  Master Ni is said to be a lineage holder of the Quanzhen / Ch'üan-chen 全眞 ("Integral Perfection" or "Complete Reality") School of Daoism.

Qigong Studies

I started with the Yijin Jing 易筋經 "Muscle/Tendon Change Classic" offered by Danial Reid in his "Guarding the Three Treasures". Simple and direct form with a beautiful focus on the six secret sounds. Was my first encounter with this mysterious Qi energy.

Learned traditional Zhan Zhuang through my Yang Style Taijiquan training. An absolute must.

Now also practice BaBao, the Eight Treasures, taught by Master Ni Hua Ching. (This isn't the Eight Brocades). It is a wonderful balance of stretching, strength/stability work, and Qi intent training.

In casual speech I call myself a Daoist, but formally I recognize that I haven't earned that distinction and probably never will because at this stage I have little motivation to become part of the Taoist orthodoxy and I haven't achieved a what I would consider to be an adequate level of study and personal achievement.

As a nickname I think of myself as a "pedestrian of dao" - 道行人 daoxíngrén.
