Don Ethan Miller’s Old School Tai Chi Summer Training Camps
July – August 2017 

– Open to all styles and levels
– Authentic, powerful training 
– No forms, just essential Tai Chi Gong Fu 
 
The legendary vitality, internal power, martial prowess, and spiritual development of the old tai chi masters were not developed through a few hours of forms practice every week.  Original training included many hours of chikung, two-person practices, equipment, single-move repetition, jing development, and standing meditation.  This summer, experience a taste of authentic “old school” tai chi, and see how rapidly your tai chi gong (skill, ability, power) can progress!


Old School Training Camp Curriculum include
:

  • Jings Training
  • Tai Chi Equipment Training
  • Dan Lian single move power training
  • 2-Person interactive exercises and Push Hands
  • Tai Chi weapons, self-defense, martial applications
  • Standing, sitting, moving chi kung/ meditation
  • Cross Training:  Yiquan, Kuntao, Sports Science
  • outdoor training/working with nature
            …and much more!     
Groups may be divided so all participants will be challenged at their personal level of experience/ability.  Expect to work hard, sweat, laugh a lot, and seriously upgrade your tai chi!
 
Head instructor: Don Ethan Miller, BTC Director, has over 40 years experience in tai chi, chi kung, and other martial and healing arts. He was 4-time national champion in tai chi tui shou (pushing hands) and is the lineage holder in mohdar kuntao, the internal component of the kuntao-silat de thouars (ksdt) system.
