This wood goat year is exciting. I'm finishing up two papers for publication, and working on another to be delivered at the Martial Arts Studies Conference in Cardiff, UK. My book, about the possible origins of Chinese martial arts is at a professional editor now.
I plan to get a Workshops web page up in the next couple of weeks with a complete schedule, but as info trickles in I'll post it:
Portland Shaolin Center, Oregon, May 16th-17th, probably available for private lessons, and jams on that Friday and Monday.
Cardiff, UK. I'm delivering a paper called Shaking Thunder Hands: Where Martial and Performing Arts Meet in India and China, and I'll be in Cardiff from June 9th-12th, available for private lessons and meet-ups.
Amsterdam, teaching with Alex Boyd, Inner Workings of Chinese and Indian Performance Practice. June 13th-14th. (we have a Facebook events page too.) I'll be there Monday and Tuesday for meet-ups.
Kings Cross, London, UK. Again teaching with Alex Boyd. The Energy of Performance Practice: Ways of Moving and Being from the East June 22-26th.
So many people in Europe and the UK over the last 8 years I've been writing this blog have asked to meet me. I didn't keep a list. I will search around in my emails and comment lists before I go, but if you want to meet me, or bring me in for a workshop, please reach out again.
Also, do come to Boulder Colorado for a few days or weeks to study with me, hike or try the beer, things are pretty great here. I've had a steady stream of visitors! If this keeps growing I'll be running a year-round retreat center.
I'm also floating the idea of hosting George Xu in Boulder in the Fall of this year, 2015.
