NATSTA (North american tang shou tao) Membership
$100/year (annual fee)


At Finger Lakes Acupuncture & Gongfu, we are part of a "gongfu family." The practice and cultivation of gongfu that is available here is only possible because we are part of a larger community spread out across the globe. We are guided by our founder, Vince Black, and by our teachers living in China, and we benefit regularly from interactions with other schools practicing the same method as we do. Because of this, joining the North American Tang Shou Tao Association (NATSTA) is required of anyone wishing to study these arts (the exception being the morning qigong classes, no membership required), in order to support the work of the Association in making these arts available to us.

NATSTA members receive a biannual newsletter, a t-shirt, and can attend events such as the annual national conference and regional seminars, which often include special guest teachers from around the world.
