My first martial arts experience was with Taekwon-Do ITF organised by
the Czech Taekwon-Do Association at the "Kerberos" school in Prague
from 1996 onwards. I attained technical level 5 - the level of a
student's green-blue belt. In Taekwon-Do, the colour green means "the
growth of a green-leaved plant" and "making progress in
learning". Blue signifies the sky and the direction of growth and
I came to feel that I wanted to grow and develop in another direction,
but in the spirit of the same philosophy, with respect for the ancient
traditions of the world.
In 2005 I met Jitka Horalkova, who was practising the Tung/Dong
style of taijiquan, and I knew that I was in the right place. I first
met Master Alex Dong at his seminar in Prague in 2006, where I was
totally captivated by taijiquan exercises, which gave me a new
direction for the growth and development of my personality and led me
to discover the teachings of feng shui and take an interest in Chinese
medicine, self-healing, correct nutrition and a healthy lifestyle.
I continue to study new exercises in Prague and I attend Master Alex
Dong's seminars. In 2012 I went on Master Alex's China Tour, where I
had the opportunity to discover the native land of Master Alex and his
family, the birthplace of our martial art, as well as to get to know
many interesting friends and students of Master Alex.
Taijiquan exercises have become a part of my life. Since 2011 I have
been handing on knowledge of Master Alex's martial art to other
students. I am happy to have been granted this opportunity.
