Great Start to the 2021 Winter Term
It's been an incredible start to the 2021 Winter Term. With over 50 students in our Virtual Classes, we can say that our school has managed to adapt to a virtual learning environment for martial arts kung fu, tai chi, and qigong.
It's a lot of work and effort for everyone including teachers and students. We all have to learn new skills and setup our own training environment. BUT it's worth it!
And in some ways, Virtual Classes are even better than in person! We are finding that students are learning faster than before and are more focused. It's also almost the same thing since the teacher-student connection is maintained. But you won't know or understand it until you try. Many students have been pleasantly surprised!
With the constant changing of lockdowns to reopening, we've decided for now to continue running Virtual Classes until the end of the 2021 Winter Term (April 18, 2021). This means that there is also an opportunity for people around the world to join us for the remaining 7 weeks of the term. In early April, we will decide how to approach the Summer Term which runs from May to August.
Master Dao advises:
The pandemic is forcing great cultural changes. Learn to accept our new 'normal' and move on so you can strive for more in life. Or put another way, adapt and strive, or go against the tides and suffer. It's your choice.
We hope you find your way to peace and acceptance.
