Dragon and Tiger (D&T) Medical Qigong is one of the most direct and accessible healing systems to emanate from China where it is known as a superior low-impact health maintenance exercise grounded in spirituality. This 1500 year old self-healing medical qigong is based on the principles of acupuncture. D&T is composed of seven simple movements – one set only takes 15 minutes. Movements are soft, circular and fluid, enhancing your overall ability to move gracefully. Practice relaxes and softens all the body’s muscles and soft tissue and improves blood circulation. Invigorating, yet calming, D&T will help you release stress and pain and enhance your energy level. D&T is one of the most beneficial qigong sets ever developed. It can be practiced by virtually anyone regardless of age or current state of health. Many students find it a fun set to practice and when they do it they actually begin to feel qi. Practice will increase your range of movement – especially in the upper body. D&T is especially renowned for simultaneously accomplishing three major changes in the body that are necessary for healing:
Other possible topics to be discussed during this class are: 3000 year old cloud hands developed by the Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu (author of the Tao Te Ching); differences between qigong and nei kung; body alignments to enhance qi flow; how fascia plays an important role in enabling qi to flow readily through the body; pulsing (opening and closing) the joints of the body to increase qi generation thereby increasing the energy of the body; pulling and pushing qi in the body; knee health and relief of knee pain; and relief of shoulder, neck, and back pain. Students will be working directly with the instructor and other students. This will be a three month class three weeks per month – August, October and December 2017 (actual dates to be determined in October and December). Cargo shorts or board shorts are strongly recommended for class in order to check knee and leg alignments.
This seminar is being taught by Marcia (Marcy) Pincus who first started practicing martial arts in 1986. She has since become a certified Energyarts instructor for Dragon and Tiger Medical Qigong.

He is a Taoist priest and spent 16 years in Asia including 11 years in China. During his time in China he treated thousands of patients using qigong, tui na, and meditation. He has been involved in many various types of martial arts for over 50 years. In the past 20 years, Master Frantzis has emphasized in his classes health, energy, and aging gracefully.

Dr. Keith Winterkorn is holding another seminar on Chin Na, the art of seizing and grasping. The class will focus on review of basics, rear attacks and hair grabs. No previous class required. Warmups will include stretching techniques with hand and wrist exercises for strength and flexibility, along with a set of basic Chin Na techniques.
You will practice techniques which allow the smaller person to overcome a larger opponent. Chin Na is an important part of Tai Chi and is found in most styles of Chinese martial arts. Emphasizing internal power, these classes will show you how to enhance your current ability. Beginner to advanced, these classes offer an opportunity to try something different.
Dr. Keith of “Tiger/Crane” fame has been a student in our school for more than 20 years and studies both Kung Fu and Tai Chi. He has had a special interest in Chin Na for many years and prior to our school, Keith had background in Judo, Aikido, Wrestling and Shaolin Style Chin Na.
Tuition for this set of classes is $70.00 for students and $80.00 for others. You will need to bring a staff (short or long), notebook, Dit Da Jow and a sweatshirt. All proceeds will go directly to supporting our school. Your support is appreciated.
