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.
