Hun Yan Chen Taiji Seminars 2008

For the last two weeks, my good friend and Classmate Master Chen Xiang and the Grandmaster's daughter Madame Feng Xu Qian, have been in the San Francisco Bay Area teaching Hun Yan Taiji.  It is a rare opportunity to get to study with such great teachers of the style.  Master Chen specialty is application, you only have to have him show you an application to feel how powerful he is......his attack is like an ocean wave smashing into you.  He has great patience, and will often repeat forms or movements over and over again u...Read more

Wuyi Shan and the Forbidden Kingdom

Part of making a good movie is the location of the shoot, it can make or break a good film. Forbidden Kingdom goes to the countryside of Fuzhou to tell it's story.  Wuyi Shan looks like a place out of the pages of a kung-fu movie.  In ancient times, this area was a place of contemplation by Taoist Monks, Confucius,and a place to write poems. As such this area has lots of lush vegetaion, forest, and many interesting hills and mountains. Then composition of the soil and the mountains........gives the mountains a purple c...Read more

Cherry Blossom Festival

One of the nice things about having classes in Japantown is that we are always in one of the cultural centers of San Francisco.  Japantown has a Festival for every season so there is always something to see and do.  Every year the Festival begins with the San Francisco Taiko Dojo stating off with a Taiko Performance.  It's sort of cool that the warm up excercises that the drummers do are Chen Taiji Ruler Qigong moves that I taught Sensei Tanaka....he always tells everyone Taiko came from China and that adding martial movements fro...Read more

The San Francisco Olympic Torch Relay

The Olympic Torch is coming to San Francisco today.  It marks a very proud moment for the Chinese Community in San Francisco.......China hosting the Olympic Games will open China for all to see it's accomplishments and it's goal of bringing the country into the 21st Century.  Of course, with this opening of China it opens itself to criticism.  It is too bad that many people put their politics before the Olympic spirit........the spirit of competition unites us all  to strive for peace....the people of China want ...Read more
