Online Help for Qigong, Tai Chi and Kung Fu

Private online classes are available by appointment, or by analyzing a video of you.

The classes are geared for independant study that is readily combined with workout book, for the fastest learning you are capable of.

Online Consulting Option #1

The fee is $75 per session. I do not accept credit cards, so a check or money order would be sent in the mail in advance.

Your video could be sent via a DVD or flash drive and should be 10-30 minutes. No extra charge if is longer than 10 minutes, since I just have to watch it. Later lessons would only need to be 10 minutes long.

I would send back your DVD or flashdrive with the lesson of 20 minutes, customized to you; they are for your eyes only, and could not be posted or shared. You would be able to review them anytime, anywhere.

The video of you should show something similar to what you want to learn. If you do not know anything about the subject, just do a set, form or kata, at your highest ability. If you do not know any forms, then do some repetitions of moves at a slow speed, regular speed, then one with power and/or speed.

After your first class, it will be you performing the material taught, for improvement.

I teach Xingyi, Qigong, Tai Chi, Bagua, nunchakus, meditation and staff. Advanced students can learn Northern Shaolin, 7 Star Praying Mantis, sword and Iron Shirt.

Let me know what exactly you would like to focus on, or I will suggest a program for you based on your video.

Many sections of the book are made for practicing with, and act as a workout reference and guide

Online Consulting Option #2

Option #2 is for sending your example videos and receiving only one file for a price of $40.

Send a DVD or flashdrivve of around 10-30 minutes, that shows what you can do in your area of interest. No extra charge if is longer than 10 minutes, since I just have to watch it. Later lessons should only be 10 minutes.

I would send you back your DVD or flashdrive with a lesson of about 10 minutes.

Private classes have advantages of individually tailored, focused training to one’s own body type and ability. Group classes share their teacher’s time, for a generalized solution.

Individualized attention insures that you are not practicing the wrong move; but more importantly, that you are not practicing it in the wrong way.

If one is not self motivated or independant, a group class might be better, since it has the advantage of momentum and reinforcement mechanisms, with schedules.

Part of Shaolin, Buddhism and Martial Arts is independant thought, this training can strenghten self-reliance and innovation.

When one enjoys their workouts, and practices on their own; they will grow at their maximum rate.

When you do not enjoy your workout, you will find ways to avoid it.

Personal motivators, or ‘Trainers’, go for the rates starting in the range of $75-$100 at local health clubs, and will not necessarily have Internal Martial Arts as a specialty. Online rates might be higher.
