I am super excited to announce that I will be able to conduct mini workshops this December at Hybrid Athletic Club in Fitchburg!
Saturday, 12/2/17 2pm – 5pm
- Fundamentals of Chen Style Taijiquan
This is an introduction to Chen Style Taijiquan. We start with stretching, followed by standing and then learn silk reeling exercises (SRE), to coordinate our movements through the core.
Saturday, 12/9/17 2pm – 5pm
- 18 Movements Form
Created by Grandmaster Chen Zhen Lei, this is a subset of the long beginner’s form (Lao Jia Yi Lu – Old Frame First Routine). It builds upon the previous workshop. We will start with stretches, standing and a quick review of the SRE.
Saturday, 12/16/17 9am – 12 noon – Part 1 of 4
Saturday, 12/16/17 2pm – 5 pm – Part 2 of 4
Sunday, 12/17/17 9am – 12 noon – Part 3 of 4
Sunday, 12/17/17 2pm – 5 pm – Part 4 of 4
- Lao Jia Yi Lu – Old Frame First Routine
These 4 sessions will focus on the traditional beginner’s form learned in Chen Village. The form consists of 75 movements.. Each session will build upon the previous session unless you already know the form.

I have been struggling over how to structure classes that will help you learn new material and retain what you learned. An hour class (or worse, a 45 min class) is too short for the body to pick up new feelings and movements. Minimally, I would have 1.5 hr classes. Ideally I would like to teach the way I was taught. 3 hours of training with lots of time for individual practice. I will post registration information on my web site when I work out the details with Kjersten.
Kjersten Bakke, owner and Master Trainer of Hybrid Athletic Club, is a fun person to work with. She is a coach to many, and an inspirational person. She also has an amazing place! 16000 sq. ft. space that is clean, well-kept and ideally suited for those who wants to be active. There’s now space for private lessons, small group lessons for those who wants to hone their skills and large groups starting out to explore Chen style taijiquan, or just want to learn something new.
