Shen Long Xingyi Quan

Saturdays 1:30-4:30pm (ongoing)

Shen Long Xingyiquan is a unique style of xingyi. While its five element and 12 animal forms are recognizable when compared to orthodox styles, the Shen Long system is distinguished by its heavy influence from Gao Bagua, emphasis on martial realism and the non-xingyi foundational aspects of its curriculum. No prior martial arts experience is required.

Cost: $75/month for unlimited classes (talk to the instructor about possible per-class rate)

Community Qigong: Wang Ji Wu's 16 Longevity Exercises
Saturdays 9-9:45am (Ithaca location)

Sunday 11-11:45am (Hector location for June 5 - July 24)

 

The reputed Doctor of Chinese Medicine, Wang Ji Wu, created this series of exercises in the 1930s to serve as a front line therapy at his busy clinic in Beijing. Distilled from his system of Xingyi Quan, the Longevity Exercises artfully combine physical movement with intention to stretch and “clean” all the joints of the body while balancing the energetic system. The exercises are easy to learn and easy to practice, and can be done seated if standing is not possible.

 

No experience required, all levels welcome. Feel free to drop in - all summer long we will do the same set of exercises every week. 

Cost: Suggested donation $10-15 per class, or $40 per month

Future Class: Liang Zhen Pu Bagua Zhang

Time and location TBD (stay tuned for this addition to the schedule)

Liang style Baguazhang is one of the three major schools of bagua that originated from students of Dong Haichuan, the founder of bagua. This style is notable for its  efficient employment of qinna (joint locks), elbow and leg attacks. The North American Tang Shou Tao Association is fortunate to have studied from multiple branches in the Liang school and teaches a uniquely comprehensive curriculum. No prior martial arts experience is required.
