Shibashi set one is a qigong set of 18 moves, simple to learn and perform but extremely effective for improving health. The sets were developed by Chinese master Lin Hou Sheng and comprise movements taken from qigong and Yang style tai chi forms. They each have specific functions to improve qi movement around the meridians, thereby improving health and preventing illness in the same way as acupuncture.

The course is easy to follow via video and spoken narrative, with slow motion for more difficult aspects of the movement (where appropriate). The set can be learnt fairly quickly, however the student must practise regularly to improve the effectiveness of each movement.

People learn qigong for a variety of reasons; mostly because they already have a condition that they wish to help improve, but in reality it works as a preventative system of simple exercise that relaxes the body and mind, without the hard work and exhaustion of other exercise programmes.

For the less able, it can also be performed seated. Students are advised to seek advice from their GP before taking up any form of new exercise programme, however the majority of GP's advise their patients to start practise of tai chi (qigong) as it is recognised as a good way to exercise safely.

Welcome to Shibashi Qigong Set One. I was introduced to this set by my Shiatsu instructor Chris Jarmey. It formed an important part of our energy warm up and fitness routine before treatment of clients.

Simple to learn and practise, you should make time everyday to run through the 18 moves, performing 6 or 12 of each move.

In this lecture we'll show you a very brief overview of the history and benefits of practising Shibashi.

My name is Andy Wright and I live in Wiltshire (UK). In 1961 I was born with a condition called cerebral palsy. For quite a number of years the condition was the focus of attention for professionals and the like. Until the age of 8 I was reliant upon a wheel chair for mobility but crawled around on my hands and knees in the house.

When I joined the Scouts I was inspired to get up and walk; having seen the other kids having fun, running around and enjoying themselves. My aim was to walk a few feet (literally) to collect my Christmas present from the School Santa. I don't remember too much about it, but I have been back to the school and noticed the distance was only 6-10 feet. However, it led on to other things... Karate training was responsible for improving my balance and coordination.

Formal education was achieved at Claremont School in Bristol until the age of 11 years and subsequently at Thomas Delarue School in Kent.

After leaving school at 16 years I had a years' worth of work experience followed by 10 months of paid employment. I spent the next 8 years unemployed although I had many social activities going on such as mobile disco DJ, War Gaming enthusiast, CB Radio operator and from about 1986 budding software author (following my purchase of the ZX Spectrum 128k).

In 1989 I started work as a computer software programmer for Avon Tyres and spent a fantastic 5 years developing Quality Assurance applications on the Amstrad 1640.

In 1989 i qualified as a black belt in karate, after training for 4 years and doing regular gradings. Shortly after, 1990, I opened up my own club teaching karate to anyone who wanted to learn, until by 1995 I had a 250+ student base and was travelling the world teaching.

The next position was for Wiltshire Council Careers Department as a part time Computer Engineer and the plan was that the remaining hours would be used to develop a freelance training business, but after 3 or 4 years it did not really take off.

So, in order to pay the bills the next role (in 1998) was a mobile computer engineer working for a variety of companies including HP & COMPAQ. The job meant travel to Lloyds TSB banks and MG ROVER garages to support staff with hardware and software issues.

In 2004 a chance of redundancy meant a quick change of employer but also a change of role to an employment advisor for Shaw Trust. The job involved working with ex-drugs Users to help them back into work and was funded through DWP.

During the years of 1998 and 2004 I had a lot of interest in various holistic health qualifications and trained in a number of them only to discover later that they were not really for me!

I discovered tai chi chi kung through my Australian visits teaching karate, but also as part of shiatsu training with Chris Jarmey. While I did not finish my shiatsu qualification it was a really good grounding to enable the move towards teaching chi kung. I did other courses and joined the Tai Chi Forum for Heath where I took up the Teacher Training qualification.

During the years of 2004-2009, I slowly developed the demand for sessions starting with the local leisure centres and then local voluntary groups. I did a couple of private sessions but had not developed the necessary skills to make them sustainable and they stopped.

Following an appearance at the 2007 Sport England conference the roller coaster that was teaching tai chi had begun to accelerate towards the eventual goal of full time employment; with engagement by several agencies and voluntary groups around the County to teach sessions on a weekly basis.
