    13 Power Taiji Dagger & Five-Section Brocade with Sam Masich

    Milton ON Canada

    Fri October 20 - Sun October 22

    Sat/Sun (10-6pm, lunch 1-3pm), 13 Power Taiji Dagger (Taijijiandao) 

    Following the traditional taijiquan thirteen-power theory, the taiji dagger (taijijiandao) creates a bridge between bare-hand training and traditional weapons work. A dagger differs from a knife in that it has no sharp cutting edge—only a point. Study of the taijijiandao includes solo and partner work that follows the same 'four-square, four-diagonal, five-phase' format found in the thirteen-power approach to taijiquan, taijidao, taijijian and taijiqiang.

    Please bring a wooden or plastic dagger/knife.

    Friday evening, 7-9:30pm:  Five-section Brocade (Neigong)
    This 20-minute long, five- part neigong routine brings together the Five Words of Self-Composure with taijiquan core principles and can function as a warm-up or cool-down for your taijiquan practice.  In this class we will go into greater depth with this internal practice.

    The five sections of the Five Words Brocade are designed to progressively loosen up and energize the practitioner, preparing her or him for taijiquan practice. They are: Section 1. The Spine; Section 2. The Arms; Section 3. The Legs. Section 4. The Energies; Section 5. Five Words Neigong.  

    cost:  Full weekend $275   (Early bird price $250, payment deadline Sept. 20th.  CTF members deadline Sept 27th).  

    Sat/Sun $250 (Early bird $235).  Friday night only, 7-9:30pm, $50.

    location:  Friday & Sunday - Milton Tsuruoka Karate, 761 Main St. E., Unit 3, Milton ON Canada L9T 3Z3.  (There should be ample parking, across the street, at the GO Train station, on both Friday evening and Sunday all day.)  Saturday only - St. David's Presbyterian Church, 130 Main St. N., Campbellville ON Canada.  (Located just south of Hwy. 401 on Guelph Line, west side of street, rear entrance, lower level.  If you get to the railroad tracks and the Lions Hall, you've gone too far.  Also note that, depending on your mapping program, it may be called either Guelph Line or Main St. N.)

    contact/registrar:  email Jill Heath

    Having difficulty finding a suitable wooden dagger?  Chuck Stratton has created some and they are available for the very reasonable price of $10.  Email him directly to reserve yours, as there is a limited amount.

    Of additional interest...  As it has in the past, this seminar falls in Waste Reduction Week (16-22 Oct 2017) in Canada.  Please consider this for meals, by  bringing your own reusable water bottle, carpooling where possible, etc.  Thanks!
