Internal martial arts are the roots of kung fu. They teach how to cultivate the body as a vessel that operates at its highest potential.

This class series at the Philosophical Research Society will teach bases for the internal martial art practice called Baguazhang.

Baguazhang, the most mystical of the internal martial art systems, applies Chinese philosophy and Traditional Chinese Medicine to a high level martial movement practice. It harness wisdom from Taoist and Buddhist principles dating back to the founder of Shaolin Kung Fu and Zen Buddhism. The practice strengthens the body as a whole and focuses on tendons, joints and fascia. It is a powerful tool that combats any type of emotional and body ailments because it teaches how to fight with the spirit.

New students are welcome, no experience is necessary, sessions are tailored to the group. Adults of all ages are welcome including those with movement limitations. Everyone can benefit from the teachings.
