Introduction To Tai Chi
Saturday, January 12, 2013 from 1:30 PM to 3:30 PM (PST)
Costa Mesa, CA
Introduction To Tai Chi and Qi Gong
You have likely heard of Tai Chi Chuan or read about it somehwere as a gentle art, or "those movements people do in the park", but do you know why millions of people practice this art around the world? Why it has not only persisted around the world, but is now more popular than ever in our fast changing world? Now is the perfect opportunity to understand more and find out if Tai Chi Chuan is right for you.
This is an introductory class providing an overview of the roots of Tai Chi Chuan, Qi Gong and the "internal arts", their classifications, training objectives (collectively and our style specifically) as well as an introduction to the very unique Jiang style Ba Gu Zhang that is taught here.
- How do the arts differ in their approach and training?
- What do those differences mean to me over time and should I care?
- What does Lau Kune Do offer that's similar or different than other schools?
Sifu McIntyre will be teaching these personally and will share with you his teaching modality, objectives and what you can expect to learn if being accepted as a student at our Temple. You will also come away with a better understanding of what to look for and ask about if you are interested in other martial arts, or teachers in the area and provide you an excellent back drop of understanding.
This workshop will be a combination of interactive lecture and practical application introducing proper warm up, flexibility and body maintenance all in a live hands on format.
Join us for an informative and welcoming workshop and learn about how the arts can impact your life and how to make the most of what you have learned.
Registration is required, friends and guests are welcome but
please have them reserve as well.
*This event requires a minimum of 4 attendees to be held*
Special note: since this workshop involves movement, please come prepared with athletic shoes/sneakers, and loose fitting sweat pants (no jeans please) and a plain T-shirt. You don't need to be fancy, but just comfortable and with closed toed shoes on.
