BIG GROUPS AND COMPANIES : MAKING PROGRESS TOGETHER

In the communities of Capbreton, Hossegor and Seignosse : Ki Surf School offers you surfing courses and Tai Chi Chuan (Chen style) for convivial, stressless practice.

THE OPTIONS

Conference room on the seafront for seminaries and Tai Chi Chuan practice, with “Casino Capbreton”
Tai Chi Chuan walks and discovering nature.

HOMOLABORIUS VS OCEAN

For convivial and enjoyable practice : making progress together taking into account the profile and capacities of each individual (different type of learning methods).

STRESS MANAGEMENT

Incessant changes in the ocean make surfing a discipline which teaches how to adapt to the present moment (the surfer turns himself around the waves, he doesn’t attack them head-on). The adrenalin and euphoria of sliding, as action motors, changes urgent situations into postive stress management.
At the same time, Taichi allows a state of calmness to exist to make an appropriate reply to external agressions (when tense, the body and spirit become inoperational).
Tai Chi Chuan is part of kung-fu whose movements, carried out slowly and precisely, aims at martial efficiency as well as health of body and mind.

LEARNING ABOUT FREEDOM, WITHIN THE RESTRICTIONS OF ONE’S ENVIRONMENT

As in every company, freedom takes place within limits of security and knowledge of the environment.
Every learning experience, and even more so in martial arts, is based on the idea of discipline, not that of restriction but positive discipline which enables the instructor a little space.

THE BALANCE

Balancing on a surfboard, as well as the balance demanded by the postures and Taichi movements impose also on the body a postural rigour which contributes to body balance for better health (back problems, bad respiration psychosomatic …).

SURFING : GROUPS OF YOUNG PEOPLE AND SUMMER CAMPS (FOR CHILDREN)

Learning in a convivial atmosphere, and performing without stress are the aims that we share with our surfing pupils.

LEARNING AREAS

Respect and adapability facing a natural environment, which is fragile and changeable.
Team spirit : Performing together rather than competition at any price !
Different learning methods : made-to measure learning adapted to the aptitudes and qualities of every individual.
Aiming at independence : by undertanding the element Ocean and the application of the security instructions inherent to surfing.
Personal development through surfing : an activity which teaches how to manage stress and gives answers to the present moment.
A sport of freedom, but subject to respecting the rules imposed by the Ocean, with safety as the first priority.
