This class will present martial arts training from within a classic Chinese martial arts paradigm. We will mix classic training practices with modern training practices in order to develop strength, conditioning, flexibility and functional skill. The class will use the martial art of Xing Yi Chuan as the basis but will include ideas and training methods from other sources as well. The use of Xing Yi Chuan allows the students to train in both internal and external training methodologies in order to attain the best fit for their training goals.
