New evening classes available this September through MSCR

Good news! I will be teaching evening classes again this fall, beginning September 15th, 2015. These classes will be offered through MSCR. Stay tune as they finalize the program. Here’s the current plan. Also, since I am out of the country this July and Concert on the square is also on certain Wednesdays, Kathryn and I decided to not have Wed evening sessions at McKee Farm Park. I will let people know if I am planning to go there to practice and you can join me.

Tuesday evening classes at Hoyt Elementary School offered through MSCR

6:00 pm – 7:00 pm Beginners Chen Tai Ji Quan (standing, silk reeling exercises, movement principle)
7:15 pm – 8:15 pm pm Intermediate Chen Tai Ji Quan (forms and weapons)

I am currently teaching at Fitchburg Senior Center, Village Co-Op Housing and, through MSCR, students at Memorial High School.

I am also available for private lessons or workshops in or out of town upon request at reasonable rates.

Information worth sharing

I usually avoid sharing what others are already sharing on the internet about Chen Style Taijiquan unless I am in total agreement with the content. Most content out there are results of good intentions but may not necessarily contain correct information. That’s not the case with the following information from Brisbane Chen Tai Chi. Happy reading.

CZQ’s advice on how to get better in my practice

1) Ding – stability

2) All the other things you hear about doing taiji :-) elbows down, shoulders relax, sit in your kua, body upright, etc. etc. Inside wound up, outside calm.
