  • Black Bear Pushes Mountains

One of the most exciting discussions in the Xing Yi series, Master Lin will go over the characteristics of the Bear rusing up and the Eagle swooping downward with the combination of Eagle and Bear. He will also explain how these two animals match wits.

The Wonders of Seven Star Ch'i Kung

Recongnized in the last century as one of the most effective Ch'i Kung exercises for rejuvenation, this form is based upon ancient text unearthed in China's tomb of the Terra Cotta Soldiers. The Wonders of Seven Star has been praised as the most graceful Ch'i Kung and is famous for helping to relieve back pain. It is one of the best stretching exercise systems in all Ch'i Kung.

One of our school's most appreciated demonstration forms, it's the perfect time to take it for the first time or as a refresher. Practice of the Wonders of Seven Star Ch'i Kung and the knowledge imparted to each student by Master Lin will last for the rest of your life.

In June 2016:

Shaolin Temple Guarding Mountain Staff Form

One of most famous martial arts forms in Chinese history, the Guarding Mountain Staff became known as the form that saved the Shaolin Temple. In the days of bandits and rebels, the Shaolin Temple had been overrun and all of the Priests had been driven out. One old Monk who was an expert with the long staff recruited as many Monks as he could find and trained them. When enough Monks were trained, he led them back, and they fought their way to victory. The recovery of the Shaolin Temple created the legend of the Guarding Mountain Staff.

When the second Emperor of the Tang Dynasty, Tan Tai Zhong, was in fear of being overthrown, he sent for help from the Shaolin Temple. They sent 13 Monks to guard the Emperor and defend the Dynasty. Their success expanded the fame of this staff form, Shaolin Temple Guarding Mountain Staff. The help from Shaolin established a long standing connection between the Shaolin Temple and the Emperor.

Now you have an opportunity to learn this dynamic form, full of jumping, leaping, power and agility. Find out what that old Monk taught his students that saved the Shaolin Temple and defended the Emperor.

Basic staff techniques will also be inroduced, taught and practiced.
