Spears and Staffs in Chen Style with Myk

  • 3814 SE Powell Blvd Portland United States (map)

Please join us for a six hour workshop covering four different classical Chinese weapons and their usage within the Chen Tai Chi style.  Myk Olsen will be sharing his experience with spear, staff, broadsword, and straight sword within Tai Chi over two 3 hour sessions.  This class is open to students of all experience levels and regardless of your current level this class will be useful for advancing your tai chi and/or weapons practice.

Saturday will cover a general discussion of Chen Tai Chi, the Dan Tien and Fa-Jing before diving into work with spears and staffs.  The class will cover the usage and improvising with these weapons and there will be time for Q&A at the end of the class.

$45 for one session or $85 for both.

NOTE:  There will be weapons available to borrow at the school but please bring your own if you have them.  Please do not bring any sharpened weapons.
