Join the Chinese Culture Center for

Tai Chi Short Staff

in June.

Originally developed by Grand Master Shiao, International Judge and Taiwan’s leading Tai Chi authority. In this form, he has combined the famous Damo Cane Form with the Chen Style Tai Chi. What makes this form unique is that it blends techniques from many weapons such as Sword, Sabre, Long Staff, and Fan. Slow and fast, soft and hard the character of Chen Style Tai Chi makes the form really come alive.

Short Staff will help you develop a basic understanding of Tai Chi weapons. It will also help you develop self-confidence and the ability to defend yourself. It is said that the best weapon is hidden in plain sight and what is more unassuming than a simple walking stick?

This form requires five (5) months to complete.

Saturday mornings

9:00 – 11:00 am

Taoist (Water) Chi Kung

July 15th, 22nd, 29th 9:15-11am

Taoist Chi Kung Water method uses a yin method of strengthening and balancing the body’s life force – Chi. This qigong method uses various practices to enhance the body’s chi as well as feel chi through the body as the practices are performed. This class will consist of a series of exercises/practices to assist students feeling and moving chi through the body. The Chi principals discussed and practiced in this class can be implemented in multiple martial arts practices including tai chi forms (primarily Yang and Wu styles); Ba Gua, and other types of Chi Kung/neigong practices. These practices will also enhance other external martial arts styles.

The Taoist Chi Kung Water method is also known for strengthening and balancing Chi to age gracefully, help maintain well-functioning joints (knees, hips, shoulders, etc.), massage the organs, open the energy gates and cavities of the body, help with strengthening the spine, increase brain function and provide self-healing practices. The course will begin by focusing on the simple movements of tai chi circling hands. As time progresses we will continue to advance each subject matter to enhance your practice.

Each neigong practice works some internal component within the body to enhance chi and body functioning. Some of the neigong components we will be exploring are: opening and closing the joints of the body (also known as pulsing; lengthening the soft tissues of the body; feeling and enhancing the organs of the body; exploring the energy gates and cavities of the body; exploring the yin/yang surfaces of the body; reviewing the four energies – peng, lu, ji, an, and how they play a role in tai chi movements and neigong practices; etheric body awareness; and meditation in movement (later classes).

Marcy Pincus will be leading this class. She was trained in these practices by the founder of Energy Arts’ Bruce Frantzis. She has been a student of Master Frantzis since 2002. Master Frantzis spent 15 years in Asia including 10 years in China, of which three years practicing with Grandmaster Liu Hung Chieh. He is a lineage holder in Taoist Chi Kung Water Method; Yang and Wu style tai chi; Hsingyi; Taoist meditation and Ba Gua. Grandmaster Liu was head of the original Ba Gua school in Beijing, and lived and studied with founder of the Wu style tai chi. Liu was a lineage holder in tai chi (Yang and Wu styles), hsing-yi, and Ba Gua, as well as an adept in Taoist Chi Kung and meditation practices.

Chi Kung seminars are offered on an every-other-month basis. All levels of experience are welcome!

Chen’s (Family) Style Tai Chi Fan Form Saturday Seminar

June 3, 17, 24
9:00 – 11:00 AM

Chen’s (Family) Style Tai Chi Fan demands all the martial skills as any
other Chen Style form, showing the same essence, style and momentum
that give this style its particular character.

Practicing and depicting the form standards & techniques such as open
and close fan, crossing step, resting step and silk reeling Jing, your
understanding of Tai Chi will grow, and it will help raise your personal
skill level in all martial arts. “How much you practice, is how much it
shows.” (Grand Master Lin)

This is the beginning of your journey into Chen’s Style Fan. When your
lessons are complete, the true journey starts. Chen Style expression,
encompassing precision & momentum, is a life time pursuit. Decide what
you think after you have practiced 1,000 times.
