Nicknamed the “Iron Arhat”, Master Guolin Shi was the former head monk and teacher at China’s famed Shaolin Temple who is world-renowned for his expertise in all facets of Shaolin training. He is a long-time friend of The Peaceful Dragon, and while he rarely travels from his own Overseas Shaolin Temple in New York, he has led near-annual workshops here at The Peaceful Dragon.
Shaolin includes the practices of Chan (Zen) meditation, qigong (energy work), internal and external forms of kung fu, and much more. This comprehensive workshop is ideal for students who have at least some experience in tai chi, kung fu or qigong, though beginners with no experience are still welcome and can surely benefit from it.
The curriculum in this workshop will include a combination of traditional Shaolin qigong and meditation, empty-hand forms, and self-defense techniques and applications. You will learn an Internal/External form called Shaolin Chang Hu Xin Yi Men Quan Form.
Workshop hours: Friday 6-9pm; Saturday 9-5pm; and Sunday 10-4pm.
