We are young professionals living in the SF Bay Area who share a deep interest in the internal martial arts. The focus of the sessions is to extend our practical skills in a safe manner. There is formal instruction in the Xin Yi Dao kung fu system.
Current members of the group practise Kendo, Karate, WuShu, Wu and Chen style Taiji, and ShanXi style Xing Yi Quan. Lessons and practises are led by indoor disciples of Master Li Tai Liang. Exercises and drills from Old Form Bagua are used to enhance effectiveness of techniques and body mechanics. Dantien training techniques build core body strength.
