Albuquerque Chinese Culture Center


Love to Sifu's family, from mine. You were always my "home," my stable place. Sifu and his teachings made me who I am today--a happy, healthy community education and support person working for truth and freedom.
Thank you!
Today was both a sad day and a celebration for the passing of Master Charles Lin.
As I sit and listen to the heartfelt voices of his students as they recall the many ways Master Lin touched and enriched their lives it makes me proud that men of this caliber exist.
As I watched the video presentation of glimpses of his life with his family, students and friends the joy and inspiration was purely apparent.
I was not a student just a peer and casual friend yet his humility, patience, kindness and diligence was and will always remain an example for all.
One of his students made a reference to Master Lin having a goal to be immortal I smiled briefly for he Master Lin had truly attained it. His legacy of family, students and friends will insure he will never be forgotten and that is truly to be immortal.
Rest in peace knowing you attained your goal Master Lin.

[03/24/21]   NEW CLASS OFFERING –
Chinese Internal Martial Arts, with focus on Chin Na

Lin’s Martial Arts Academy is excited to announce the offering of a unique new class providing integration of the internal arts of Tai Chi, Hsing Yi, and Bagua, with the unifying discipline being Chin Na.

Training will include meditation, qi gong, and basic exercise to develop a strong mind and body.

Class instruction will very much be in the Chinese tradition. The internal arts of Tai Ci, Hsing I and Bagua provide the core of the training. Specifically, instruction will include 13 Posture Tai Chi, 5 Elements Hsing I, and Classical Bagua forms. Training will be refined through the years based on these fundamental teachings. Ultimately, external style Chinese martial arts will be incorporated into the discipline.

The training will be scaled to be appropriate for the full range of students from beginners to those with more experience in martial arts. The class will provide physical conditioning, flexibility and balance with increasing competence as time progresses.

The classes will be led by Keith Winterkorn, MD, who studied for over 25 years under Sigong Charles Lin, the founder of Lin’s Martial Arts Academy. Dr. Winterkorn has led classes in Chin Na and Bagua at the Academy for the past several years. Dr. Winterkorn also has extensive training in martial arts over the past 50 years including Shaolin Kung Fu, Karate, Tai Kwon Do, Aikido, and Judo.

The Lin’s Martial Arts Academy observes all health and safety recommendations associated with the Covid pandemic. Prospective students are strongly encouraged to be vaccinated against Covid-19.

Class time: Monday and Wednesday 7:30 to 9:00 pm
Tuition: $90.00 per month plus tax.

[05/11/19]   Marriage of Heaven and Earth

I cannot say enough great things about the Marriage of Heaven and Earth Chi Kung class recently taught by Ms. Marcy Pincus at Lin's Martial Arts Academy.

In addition to teaching this Chi Kung set, hands on instruction in opening and closing the joints (fingers, wrist, elbow, shoulder, hip, knee, ankle) as well as partner exercises were included in the instruction. These joint exercises were most helpful in learning to moving chi through these areas to improve mobility and reduce pain.

The class was comfortable, students were encouraged to ask questions and relate their responses to the exercises. Ms. Pincus was attentive to individual student's joint issues to help address them within the framework of the class.

There were lots of smiles and "ahh's".

I hope more Chi Kung classes will be offered in the future.

[05/09/19]   Thank you to everyone who has liked our page - we're up to 500!

But mostly, thank you to everyone who's ever been a student or customer of the Chinese Culture Center. Here's to many many more years of keeping the beauty of Chinese culture and martial arts alive!
