Summer Seminars start this Saturday

This summer I’ll be holding a series of optional seminars on higher level forms, open to Shaolin-Do students of all levels.  They’ll take place after the Saturday class, from 1:45-3pm.

I’ll teach each form twice in case people have scheduling difficulties making one of the times.  If you can make both times, then you can come twice without having to pay any more for the seminar.

This Saturday 6/6 I’ll teach Pan Lung Pang, Entwining Dragon Staff, one of the two highest level staff forms Grandmaster Sin has taught since coming to the U.S. in 1964.  This is a fun and exciting form with lots of elegant, entwining moves.

The cost for the seminar will be $25, or $10 if you’ve taken the form with me before and want a review.  You can also volunteer 1 (for review) or 2 hours (for first-timers) of your time to help me clean up or work in the garden in exchange for taking the seminar.

We’ll do this seminar again on Sat 6/26 if you miss the first one or want a free review.

Next Saturday 6/13 I’ll teach Tang Lang Chuan, Praying Mantis Fist.  This is a high level mantis form with lots and lots of challenging kicks, a real workout!  We’ll do the replay on this seminar on 7/11.  The cost for this will be the same as above.

Saturdays August 1 and 8 I’ll teach 7 Section Chain Whip, one of the most challenging flexible weapons to learn.  The chain whip is a chain with a dart attached to the end that you can throw and swing.  The cost of this seminar will be $50 which includes the cost of the whip, or $10 for a review.

These extra seminars are a way to challenge yourself with higher-level material. Once you have learned an advanced seminar form, you’ll accelerate your ability to learn the forms at your level. You increase your movement “vocabulary” by taking on more intricate techniques and longer sequences.

Let me know if you have any questions, and I look forward to seeing you in class!
