TCMA & Qigong

Traditional Chinese Martial Arts (TCMA), is an umbrella term which refers to styles such as Kung Fu and Taijiquan (Tai Chi).

 

Within these styles, there are hundreds of sub-styles including Long Fist Kung Fu, White Crane Kung Fu, and Yang-style Taijiquan -- the three we train. Other popular styles include Hung Gar, Praying Mantis, Chen-style Taijiquan, Baguazhang, etc.

What is TCMA?

Traditional training focuses on the five fundamental principles of martial arts practice: hands, eyes, body structure, technique, and stepping.

 

Due to the numerous applications and depth of the practice, traditional training takes years of dedicated practice to attain proficiency. There are no shortcuts to attaining higher quality and deeper understanding.

How does TCMA differ?

The practice of TCMA involves physical and mental exercises which can result in improved overall health. The internal side of training uses more mental focus to improve the quantity and quality of Qi (bio-energy) flow.

 

Dedicated practice can lead to:

  • improved balance and strength

  • improve flexibility

  • reduced stress

  • lower blood pressure

  • weight loss

  • increased self-confidence

  • improved awareness of one's
    self and of one's surroundings

  • and more!

Practicing for Health

Qigong roughly translates to “energy work.” It is the art of developing and cultivating the body’s Qi, or bio-energy, often through mindful breathing and meditation.

There are many forms of Qigong practice and a wide variety of  training purposes. Reasons for practice can range from bettering one's health to improving one's martial arts skills
