This is the first time this new series of workshops has ever been conducted, and is the perfect opportunity to learn from someone with lineage back to both Yang Chengfu and Yang Ban Hou. Sifu James Gao will give you in-depth training in a few movements of the Yang Style Traditional 8-5 Form, adding to it with each workshop. Every aspect of the form will be studied in detail, and each movement will be drilled to ensure the body and mind are working as one. The knowledge gained at each session will then be applied to developing Push Hands skills.

Internal power, structure and mind control are at the core of Push Hands Jins (Skills). Without them, you cannot give your focus totally to your opponent and develop the required sensitivity. The only way to train your body and mind to that level is through form.

The course will be conducted by

Sifu James Gao
Sifu James Gao is a 6th Generation Traditional Yang Style Tai Chi master, with lineages to both Yang Chengfu and Yang Ban Hou. He has over 40 years of martial arts experience, from internal as well as external styles. While hands-on in both forms and Push Hands/Application Training, Sifu James, through his research, has gained a wealth of knowledge in classic Tai Chi and other Chinese Internal Martial Arts theory. His ability to articulate the essence of this theory and how to apply it is well-regarded by his peers and students.
