        What are the Teachers-In-Training Classes?

        This series is part of the practicum requirement for students who seek teacher certification and plan to teach Wudang Martial Arts to the public. The program has two aims:  to train students to teach and to raise funds for our foundation. 

        Why are these classes called "Classes by Donation"?

        When you take a class led by our teachers-in-training, you not only assist them in fulfilling the capstone of their many years of training, you also support Shifu Zhou's Daoist Benevolent Association, his non-profit organization. Master Zhou hopes to encourage his students and supporters to take classes for their wellbeing while simultaneously donating to his foundation.  Financial support is crucial to maintaining and sustaining this organization.

        What is it? 

        This introductory class is ideal for students who are new to Taiji. The course will familiarize students to our warm-up routine, stances, and breathing exercises. Basic Taiji postures such as single whip, cloud hands, empty stance, brush knee, and parting the horse's mane will be emphasized. This course will ease your entry into the form in no time.
