In September 2016:

Join Dr. Winterkorn as he continues to lead "Chin Na" practice in 2016.

Dr. Keith Winterkorn is holding another seminar on Chin Na, the art of seizing and grasping. The class will focus on review of basics, rear attacks and hair grabs. No previous class required. Warmups will include stretching techniques with hand and wrist exercises for strength and flexibility, along with a set of basic Chin Na techniques.

You will practice techniques which allow the smaller person to overcome a larger opponent. Chin Na is an important part of Tai Chi and is found in most styles of Chinese martial arts. Emphasizing internal power, these classes will show you how to enhance your current ability. Beginner to advanced, these classes offer an opportunity to try something different.

Dr. Keith of “Tiger/Crane” fame has been a student in our school for more than 20 years and studies both Kung Fu and Tai Chi. He has had a special interest in Chin Na for many years and prior to our school, Keith had background in Judo, Aikido, Wrestling and Shaolin Style Chin Na.

Tuition for this set of classes is $70.00 for students and $80.00 for others. You will need to bring a staff (short or long), notebook, Dit Da Jow and a sweatshirt. All proceeds will go directly to supporting our school. Your support is appreciated.

In October 2016:

Traditional Tai Ch'i Sword

As Master Lin’s teacher once told him, "If you don’t know Tai Ch’i sword, you don’t really know Tai Ch’i". The sword will teach you how to focus and project your Ch’i into your weapon and develop the graceful flow of energy and motion that defines Tai Ch’i Sword. After more than 50 years of sword training, Master Lin will share the Traditional 60 Move Yang Style Tai Chi Sword Form one last time. This form is special because it still uses the scholar’s names for the postures such as

  • Big Chief Star,
  • Wild Cat Catches Mice,
  • Long Rainbow Pierces Sun, and
  • Sleepy Bird Flies into Forest.

The sword form will be developed in three overlapping phases. First, foundation is learned through the practice of the 10 original stances. This will give you a solid structure on which to build the second stage, learning the 20 basic sword fighting techniques. Phase three is the form itself, 60 individual postures connected by transitional motions. Performed with all the same attention to reverse breathing and the three body switches, Tai Ch’i Sword can teach you how to push "Jing" out of the tip of your weapon.

For this class, you will need a practice sword, a wooden sword and a notebook. The number of months to completely learn this traditional sword form will be determined by class progress, but no less than 4 alternating months.

For more details call us.
