Our focus is build strength, agility and overall fitness using training methods from Chinese internal martial arts (Taiji, Xinyi and Bagua). Each practice begins and ends with breathing exercises for gathering energy prior to exercise and restoring energy spent afterwards. We use the various rotational movements of Bagua to improve core and waist mobility as well as build strength and mobility in the joints. The basic stepping exercises and movements of Xinyi build upper and lower body coordination and balance. The attention to posture and whole body coordination helps to build and injury resistant body. We use partner exercises to provide resistance and further build rotational strength in every plane of movement. During the summertime, we practice outdoors and incorporate striking pads to drill explosive power.
