Workshop Description:

Tai Yi Xing Bu Gong or Swimming Dragon Walking Gong 太乙行步功 is a rare and beautiful form from the Daoist lineage of Grandmaster Yu Anren. It combines Qigong and Taichi principals into a fun walking form with gentle and graceful stretches to promote flexibility, balance, strength and inner peace.  Those movements are good for strengthening the bones, improving balance and flexibility as well as increasing internal Qi, invigorating blood circulation and refreshing the mind.

12 Week Qin Quan Training Workshop

(Prerequisite: Qin Quan Half-day or One-day Workshop is recommended)

This is an hour and 30 minute long weekly class for training Qin Quan Part A in its completion. Qin Quan Part A includes moves for loosening and strengthening your wrists, elbows, shoulders, back and legs, improving your body alignment and structure as well as training your ability of adhering to your opponent, unity force and sinking force in martial application. This training enhances your endurance, flexibility, balance and strength and helps to correct your structure imbalance. All exercises can be done gently including the exercises in contact.

The class format is mainly self practice with instruction, guidance, attunement and correction of moves when needed. No wearing watches or long nails for this class. Loose clothing and exercise shoes are recommended.
This class focuses on the health benefit of Qin Quan and the paired contact exercises are done gently and for fun. Students interested in participating in active fighting practice are required to do a special waiver.
The last four exercises in Qin Quan A are paired contact exercises that have special value in testing your individual exercises and in further training your reaction, flexibility, endurance and sensitivity in adhering to your opponent. You can choose not to practice them but focus on individual exercises if you need to.
This is your special opportunity for receiving Qin Quan A full training.
