Instruction available there ranges from Qigong/ Neigong , Tai Chi and other Internal martial arts, Swordplay, Meditation, Self Defense, Contact Fight training, nutrition and other skills related to those mentioned above.

NEW ONGOING FEATURE ON OUR WEB SITE

The next installment of “Something to meditate on”, after a short hiatus, will continue soon on our Qigong/ Meditate page (DCMDTaichi.com). It is produced by long time collaborator, training partner, and good friend Henry C. Brennan. He has an extensive background in Martial and Energy arts beginning in the 1970’s. His specialty is energy cultivation with a focus on passive and active work along with methods and strategies of how to apply these skills to one’s daily life.

He shares concepts of the work by providing snippets of wisdom and knowledge each month on our Qigong/ Meditation page.

Interested individuals can also now begin online training with him to use the distilled exercises and methods of this path. I recommend that you feel free to check in bi-weekly for the next nugget along the path toward potentiating oneself.

We will meet for sword basics and application class this month on Wednesday SEPTEMBER 18th, 2019 from 7:30-9 PM. Bring a wooden sword, eye protection and groin protection (optional). All students are encouraged to attend regardless of experience.
