This coming weekend -- on Sunday, Oct. 24, 2010 -- I'll teach an Internal Strength workshop in East Lansing, Michigan, near the Michigan State University campus. If you study tai chi, hsing-i, bagua, or other martial arts and are interested in what makes an internal art "internal," I'll coach participants in six key internal skills.
Here's a hint -- they're all physical skills, not metaphysical.
What we'll practice:
- Standing stake
- Development of Internal Strength skills -- ground path, peng jin, silk-reeling energy, whole-body movement, use of the kua, dan t'ien rotation
- Pole exercises
- Martial applications
Where: Hannah Community Center in East Lansing -- 819 Abbot Rd, East Lansing, MI 48823
When: Noon to 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 24, 2010
And here is a clip from my Silk-Reeling Energy DVDs that shows some of what we're going to practice next weekend. There will be hands-on correction and personal feedback for everyone. My goal is for everyone to walk away having risen a notch in their knowledge and internal skills.
