Practical self defense applications for women

• Chen Style Ta Chi Qin Na
Friday: 5:30 p.m. – 6:50 p.m.

All disciplines of martial arts begin with self defense as the basis. Without self defense technique, the form is an empty show only. Self defense techniques must always be taught with every form of martial arts. One can never become a master of Tai Chi or any martial art without learning the self defense techniques!

All schools of martial arts teach a form of Qin Na. It historically has, and is even today, almost always treated as a guarded secret, including in Chen Style Tai Chi. The Sixteenth Generation Grandmaster Xin Chen said he would rather burn all the information about Qin Na than teach it to any unworthy student. Consider the information we are being taught as special and something to treasure.

We will learn many techniques and “secrets.” Do not worry, but we must first start with the basics and learn them well, for there is no progressing further without them.
