I will teach a one-day event (with option for informal follow-on day).
Date: Saturday June 24, 2017 [THIS IS NOW THE FIXED DATE]
Time: 12 noon to 4 PM
Location: Seattle city venue info with registration
Content: Tai Chi, Xingyi and Yi Quan drills methods for internal energy. Content based on books Juice, Peng, Surge, Xingyi, Packing and The Aiki Singularity. Atmosphere and style is friendly, inquiring, non-judgemental, non-competitive. Exploration of foundation principles and best practice for solo work, goal is to maximize take-out payload from the event. I will present a highly effective streamlined training protocol, a composite based on elements from The Aiki Singularity book (which in turn is derived from several different martial arts). I call this simple but extremely powerful protocol the Three Phase Buildout, five minutes for each phase - 15 minutes total session. Unbelievably simple, incredibly effective (especially when put up against the usual ultra complex methods that require years of study and feats of memory even to get started with). This is not dance, not physical fitness, not street sucker-punch conflict resolution. It is purely and squarely designed to get you experiencing and forging your own internal energy immediately. Eliminate non-essentials. Put in some weeks with this in your home training and you'll find yourself buzzing like a radioactive neon beehive. Plenty of Q/A, touch hands if desired, etc.
Follow-On Day: I realize that some people rarely get to Seattle. If you will be here that weekend from out of town and you'd like to more after the seminar day, Sunday the 25th there will be a second totally informal small-group semi-private practice session at some other venue or park, about 12 noon til whenever. Basically a Q/A bring copies of the books, bring any questions, issues or anything and we'll have fun going over whatever you bring on.
Tuition Fee & Procedure - Saturday main session: $70/head. Main session requires pre-registration, and pre-payment via PayPal only. No attendance/registration at door. Registration must be received by or before June 5, with pre-payment via PayPal to the email account firstname.lastname@example.org. Cancellation receives full refund (including PayPal fee if any) if notification by 48 hours prior to seminar day, otherwise no refunds or changes.
Followup Day - Fee & Procedure - Sunday followup session: $30/head. You must register for the main session (above) in order to attend the follow-on. Pre-payment is not required for the follow-on session, you can pay on the day. When registering for the main session, just indicate if interested in attending the followup day.
Misc: This is my first local Pacific NW seminar in over 5 years. My San Francisco partner venue is shutting down next month, so I will not be doing any more of my Bay Area twice-yearly workshops. This is likely to be my last West Coast event for a good long while or ever. So check it out if you have any interest in deep internal work. For out-of-towners, I can't guarantee sunny skies that weekend, but overall summer tends to be extremely nice here, and it's kind of a happening place right now.
