This comprehensive workshop is ideal for students who have at least some experience in tai chi, kung fu or qigong, though beginners with no experience are still welcome and can surely benefit from it.

The curriculum in this workshop will include a combination of traditional Shaolin qigong and meditation, empty-hand forms, and self-defense techniques and applications. You will learn an Internal/External form called Shaolin Chang Hu Xin Yi Men Quan Form.

Workshop hours: Friday 6-9pm; Saturday 9-5pm; and Sunday 10-4pm.
