Course description

The 5 Animals Frolic represents a traditional system of Qigong. Its origins go back to around the year 200 A.D. The movements require a quiet mind and a body able to alternate between tension and relaxation. The traditional system of the 5 Animal Qigong has endured several modifications over time, remaining even so amongst the most practiced set of energetic exercises in the West as well as in the East. The instructional video includes the explanation of the benefits and the characteristics that identify each animal. Every theory section is followed by the execution of the relative Qi Gong movements filmed with different angles.

Advantages and benefits

The exercises, awakening the innate animal instinct in each person, are useful to reactivate the energy in the internal organs and to balance the overall energetic movement.

  • The Idea

  • Gianfranco Pace


Pace"The 5 Animals Frolic Qigong not only is an optimal work on energy, but it can also represent a valid sequence for all Taijiquan practitioners. Being strong, that is, expressing potential strength, being balanced or even better, managing imbalance, being cautious in life but also when taking a step, being sinuous, subtle when moving, as are the tiger, the crane, the monkey, the snake, are all elements deeply inherent in Taijiquan. So, during the execution of the form or other Taijiquan exercises in reality we are expressing the dragon´s movement. Taijiquan movement represents: the force and power of the tiger, the balance and elegance of the crane, the cautiousness and openness of the monkey, the snake´s presence and ability to take advantage of the opportunity, so we become dragons." Master Gianfranco Pace.

Gianfranco PaceMaster Gianfranco Pace begins practicing Chen style just after adolescence, under the guidance of master Shi Ronghua. From that moment on, he will research continuously, having encounters with the best living masters of Chen style Taijiquan (and not only) in Europe and China. He stays over a month in Chengdu, where he privately studies the internal Kung Fu of Sun Lutang with master Gou Hong Hai. Returning to Italy he invites master Gou for some time to complete the technical programs started in China. Simoultaneously, carries on reserching on Chen style, in fact, thanks to master Chen Xiaowang (19th generation of Chen family), he has the possibility of studying  and living in Chen village (Chenjiagou, China), at master Chen Xiaoxin´s house (Chen Xiaowang´s brother).

From 2001 master Pace is invited to several foreing schools (in the United States, Dominican Republic, and several european cities), both of Chen style Taijiquan and other martial arts styles to spread his own understanding of the art. Nationally, master Pace has cooperated with FIWuK (Wushu Kung Fu Italian Federation) for which in 1999 compiles the regulations of Tui Shou competitions.

From December 2002 and for several years he has collaborated with FIWS (Wushu Sanda Italian Federation) as supervisor of the internal styles.

In 2009 the association I.T.K.A (International Taiji Quan Kung Fu Association) was born, with master Pace as the Technical Director. Throughout the years, thanks to master´s qualities and study methods, the International Taiji Quan Kung Fu Association has become an important reality: there are around 40 schools studying the technical programs all over Italy and abroad. Today I.T.K.A. is acknowledged as an association of seriuos researchers and students of Taijiquan, taking care of every aspect of the art: martial, energetic/salutary and philosophical. Beyond the constant growth there are other elements that identify master Pace and his repercussion in the school, first amongst them concreteness. The explanations, with all the theory at the base, are always demonstrated practically, and is this what is considered by many “master Pace´s strength”.
