Master Tung, Kuan Yen visited us and gave seminars these past two weekends. It was a great experience for everyone and we all learned a lot.
Master Tung was gracious enough to give a lecture on tai chi history and theory as well as teach two of our push hands classes.
Many thanks from all of us here at YMAA Boston.
Inspired by Mandla Nkosi at Boston Kettlebell, I've been starting my days with a power packed fruit and vegetable smoothie. It's a remarkably quick and easy way to get some valuable nutrition. I usually prep a large amount of fruits and veggies at the beginning of the week so assembling the ingredients is simple.
I'll upload pictures from time to time to give an idea of what I'm making.
Many thanks to Master Tung for teaching last night's push hands class. It was a fascinating evening for all of us. We all enjoyed pushing (i.e. getting tossed around the room) with him.
Master Tung is an outstanding teacher. He has the rare ability to explain a complicated, confusing subject in simple terms.
The next two weekends of seminars will surely be fascinating.
I had a few things to do at the studio today so I thought it would be a good opportunity to get the munchkin started on her weapons practice. The staff is fundamental to kung fu training and a personal favorite of mine.
I think she's off to a good start.
Congratulations to everyone who participated in last aturday's demo!
It takes courage and willpower to perform in front of an audience.
Here's a shot of the teams getting ready for the show.
It's a cold grey morning today. Nothing better than some tai chi to warm the bones!
