    What is it? 

    In this class, we will introduce students to Taiji Basics. The session will start with warm up exercises in stretching, meditation and Qigong.  Then it will proceed to a drill on basic Taiji movements such as "brush knee", "single whip", "playing the lute", "grasping the bird's tail" among others.  The introduction of these movements will familiarize you with the proper execution of these Taiji basics in coordination with deep breathing.  In no time, you will be able to move on to the short form of 28.  This is a great introductory class for those who do not have experience with Taiji. 

    What are the Teachers-In-Training Classes?

    Our Daoist Gate Foundation is again offering this series of classes by our teachers in training. This series is part of the practicum requirement for students who seek teacher certification and plan to teach Wudang Martial Arts to the public. 

    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?
    Calling Spanish speakers!  Our teacher-in-training, Tatiana Beltran, will conduct new session of Taiji training in Spanish!  In this class, we will introduce students to Taiji 28. If you have some Taiji basics, this class is for you. You will move to the next step of learning Taiji 28. It is a short form that incorporates fundamental movements such as "brush knee", "single whip", "playing the lute", "grasping the bird's tail" among others.   In no time, you will be able to move on to the long form of 108.  

    De que se trata?

    ¡Llamando a hispano parlantes! ¡Nuestra profesora de formación, Tatiana Beltran, llevará a cabo una nueva sesión de formación de Taiji en español! En esta clase, presentaremos a los estudiantes el Taiji 28. Si tienes algunos conceptos básicos de Taiji, esta clase es para ti. Pasarás al siguiente paso de aprendizaje de Taiji 28. Es una forma corta que incorpora movimientos fundamentales como "rozar la rodilla", "solo látigo", "tocar el laúd", "agarrar la cola del pájaro" entre otros. En poco tiempo, podrá pasar a la forma larga de 108 pasos.

    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.

    ¿Por qué estas clases se llaman "Clases por donación"?
    Cuando tomas una clase dirigida por nuestros maestros en formación, no solo los ayudas a cumplir la piedra angular de sus muchos años de formación, sino que también apoyas a la Asociación Benevolente Daoísta de Shifu Zhou, su organización sin fines de lucro. El Maestro Zhou espera animar a sus estudiantes y seguidores a que tomen clases para su bienestar y, al mismo tiempo, donen a su fundación. El apoyo financiero es crucial para mantener y sostener esta organización.

    What is it?
    Our certified teacher, Jennifer Finley, will teach the basic stances and movements of Wudang Taiji 108 via Zoom. The goal is to understand the concept, practical application, breathing coordination of each movement; and in addition, to physical perform this concept correctly. This is a class for those ready to move to a deeper understanding and practice of Taiji.

    Taiji 108 is the long form version that consists of three parts.  Woven in them are basic and transitional movements consistent to all Taiji practice:  primodial opening, single whip,  brush knee, playing the lute, grasp the bird's tail, Chi na, lion's kick,  Pat the horse, Cloud hands among others.
