魏樹人,1924年生於北京,楊式太極拳著名拳師, 楊健侯太極拳內功繼承人,太極草堂主人。

 魏先生青年時代即對太極拳產生濃厚興趣, 1958 年由於神經衰弱,及左心房傳導阻滯,促使魏先生與太極拳結下畢生之緣。 他學過楊式太極拳24式和88式,陳式太極拳一路和二路,及太極劍、刀、棍,等。 雖然神經衰弱症好,但是,左心房傳導阻滯卻依舊未愈。 1982年魏先生拜在我國著名武術家、楊式太極拳大師汪永泉先生門下。 魏先生學習刻苦,進步神速, 深得汪師垂愛,並承汪師之遺命, 著書傳徒,宏揚該門派拳法。



 1992 年魏先生作為北京市太極拳代表團成員, 參加九省市太極拳推手交流會,並以其純正的楊式太極拳內功勁法和精湛的揉手技藝博得與會者高度評價。 是年五月,應湖南省太極拳協會邀請赴長沙交流講學, 被授予湖南省太極拳協會高級顧問。
 
1994年應澳洲守德武館特邀,前往交流講學, 被譽為楊式太極拳宗師美名。 1995年前往澳洲墨爾本交流講學。1996年應台北國術館邀請, 前往交流講學暨進行《楊式太極拳述真續集》首發式。1998應溫州武術協會邀請,前往交流講學。


多年來, 魏先生辛勤耕耘, 殫力宏揚楊式太極拳技。

2013年6月12日魏先生病逝於北京。


A Tribute to the late Tai Chi Grandmaster Wei Shu Ren

My Tai Chi master, Wei Shu Ren, passed away peacefully in Beijing on the morning of the 12th June 2013 at the ripped old age of 90.

I met Grandmaster Wei 18 years ago in 1995 and it... was only in 1998 that he formally accepted me as an indoor disciple through a tea ceremony. I still recall the first visit to Beijing that GM Wei seemed to be on a mission to spread his art. He was so generous and gave us so much information on that first visit that we had information overload; he was more afraid of us not getting it. I felt really fortunate and honoured to be given this incredible opportunity to learn the art from him.

He was an innovative teacher as well. He felt the original 89 form, Lao Liu Lu, was too long and tedious for busy people to learn. Since he was on a mission to spread the art, the long form was an obstacle in getting people interested. As a result, he developed an abridged version of the form to only 22 sections; a huge reduction from 89. This proved to be a very successful innovation as more students came onboard to learn the 22 form.

One day towards the end of March 1999 during my meditation I received an instruction (an intuition really) to go to Beijing to learn the full 89 form from GM Wei. I contacted him to get the okay, packed my bag immediately and off to see him. He was very gracious to accept my impromptu visit and spent over two weeks with me alone. It turned out to be the right decision as I had a lot of transformational insights with the full attention from him, one on one. He really made sure I learnt all the details right and it was painstaking to correct old habits. Fortunately he was also very patient with me since there was a fair bit of unlearning for me as well. I was very fortunate to be to be taught personally by him, one on one, the complete 89 form including the energetics. He gave his full energy and enthusiasm in teaching whether it’s a big group or just one person.

Later on GM Wei developed an intermediate form which truly condensed the 89 form into 37 form without omitting any important principles encapsulated in the original form. We had to learn his new configuration which was really great as we could practise the full internals in half the time. His three daughters were getting more involved in helping GM Wei to teach the 37 form. When we practise the 89 form with the full internal and mind processes, it can take up to one hour. With the 37 form, we get the same results in 30 minutes.

To sum up, the late GM Wei had passed down his art to all his indoor disciples especially his three daughters. He has achieved his objective of preserving the art and passing it on to future generations. With my fellow indoor disciples and GM Wei’s three daughters, we now have the responsibility to continue spreading his legacy. Finally, I want to share his top three wisdom that I find very useful for me:

• Observe the rules then transcend the rules – i.e. to be formless, master the form first
• When in use, it manifests, when not in use it disappears – this relates to mind intention to manifest power out of thin air
• No intention comes the real intention – Real intention is the connection to the Source and can only be achieved when our ego is out of the way
