What's New for the 2021 Summer Term!

(Summer Term Begins May 3, 2021)

This summer, we’ll learn how to apply ancient Shaolin Medicine wisdom in our Shaolin Kung Fu, Tai Chi, and Qigong classes to improve the health of our kidneys.

The kidneys are one of the vital organs of our body. If your kidneys are not doing well, you can experience many symptoms related to aging, joint pains, and physical deterioration. On the other hand, developing healthy kidneys will support enhanced stamina and vigor.

The Kidney belongs to the Water Element and is about the essence of life. Eating and breathing well promotes the development of essence, and movement helps distribute essence in the body through the water circulatory system.

We must learn to nourish the kidneys and make better lifestyle choices to support them if we want to live a fruitful life.

 

Shaolin Kung Fu

Foundation Class

Shaolin Kung Fu utilizes stomping techniques to build strength in the legs and to develop greater self defence capability. There is another reason - by stomping the feet, we sooth and stimulate the kidneys. We’ll be regularly practicing a Shaolin Spirit Form that physically promotes healthier kidneys.

Forms Class

We will continue to emphasize the stomping in all our forms and add iron body training to physically strengthen the kidneys. Many students have started the new Animal Spirit Group Form and we will endeavor to complete it in time for an end-of-summer performance (indoor or outdoor to be determined!).

Shaolin Tai Chi

Foundation and Forms Class

We will learn about the lower core which houses the kidneys, and learn how to support them with gentle Shaolin Tai Chi exercises. We will enhance our breathing, relax the body, and learn to flow the breath qi through movements especially designed for the core and kidneys.

Shaolin Qigong

Foundation Class

We will learn about the kidney organ and learn its importance in the body and with respect to qigong. We will promote rejuvenation by emphasizing qigong exercises that promote blood and breath qi to the kidneys.

Intermediate Forms Class

We will investigate the Kidney Meridian and learn how to support the kidneys through advanced qi flow and qi channeling techniques. We’ll learn how to identify the energy nodes along the Kidney Meridian and learn how to diagnose it using awareness skills, pulse readings, and tongue observations. We’ll apply qi flow and channeling techniques to the Xiaohongqigong, Yijinjing, and Shaolin Jinganggong forms.
