June 14-16

In this immersive workshop, Terry Dunn will provide students of all levels with expert, step-by-step instruction in the 60-posture Yang Style Tai Chi Short Form created by his teacher, Grandmaster William C.C. Chen.

This includes: (a) classical Yang Style exercises; (b) Silk-Weaver’s Exercise; (c ) Qing Dynasty Imperial Guard Exercises; (d) select of the “Silk-reeling” (chan su jin) exercises of Chen Style Tai Chi Chuan.

In addition to 5 hours of Form practice a day, you will also learn the basics of Push- Hands (Tui-shou) practice for 2 hours each day.

This workshop is appropriate for students of all levels of Tai Chi experience–from absolute beginners to intermediate and advanced students who have Tai Chi forms under their belt and are skilled at Push Hands. Its primary purpose is to help students at all levels gain proficiency in the 60-posture Short Form and to improve their Push- Hands skills in order to enjoy more of Tai Chi’s great health benefits, and also, if they choose to stay on, to give them a solid foundation in order to derive maximum benefit from Grandmaster William Chen’s teachings during his workshop that follows immediately (October 11 through 15). Terry Dunn is also very well-versed in the traditional 108-posture Yang style Long Form and the Cheng Man-Ching 37-posture form, both of which he learned starting in 1980. If you have experience in these or other Yang Tai Chi forms, Terry will get you versed in GM William Chen’s 60-posture form in no time.

Terry Dunn’s teacher, Grandmaster William C.C. Chen is a senior student of the great Chinese Renaissance genius Professor Cheng Man-Ching (1902 – 1975), a master of the “Five Excellences”–painting poetry, calligraphy, herbal medicine and boxing (Tai Chi).  This is the Professor’s resonating Taoist philosophy that is activated by the practice of his style of Tai Chi Chuan that you will learn at this workshop

In 1983, Master Terry Dunn was formally certified to teach Tao Tan Pai Internal Arts (Nei Kung) (along with Southern Shaolin Five Animals Kung Fu) at the Taoist Sanctuary of Los Angeles and San Diego. In 1996, Master Terry was certified to teach Ehrmei Mountain Bok Fu Pai (White Tiger Style) Kung Fu, Flying Phoenix Heavenly Healing Qigong (Fei Feng San Gung), and other Bok Fu Pai internal arts by Grandmaster Doo Wai, the sixth generation master of Bok Fu Pai (White Tiger Style) Kung Fu. Through his experience of teaching Tao Tan Pai Nei Kung for 40 years and Flying Phoenix Qigong for 22 years--Sifu Dunn observed and discerned that when these two very dissimilar Qigong systems are practiced one after the other, they happen to provide profoundly enhanced, synergistic health benefits to the practitioner. Thus in this immersive Tao Tan Pai workshop, you will also experience some strategic and artful addition Flying Phoenix Qigong.

Teaching since 1983, Master Terry Dunn is one of the most thoroughly vetted Qigong teachers--by modern medicine and professional sports in America.
