Workshop with Shaolin Master Shi Guolin

Friday March 27,
through March 29
Adults

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.

Details about time and fee to be announced soon.

Note: To encourage our students to take advantage of this rare visit from a Master practitioner, all children’s kungfu  and adult’s kungfu, tai chi, and yoga classes will be cancelled on Saturday and Sunday.
