Portland Workshop: Pure Animal


Please come to my workshop if you are anywhere near Portland Oregon, or if you know anyone near Portland Oregon. An alternative title floated for this workshop was “Scrambling Your Opponent’s Mind.”

I’m also doing a book talk and signing the Friday night before. (The school is going through some positive transitions at the moment, so they don’t have the talk listed yet, but I will have my books with me to sign so come on by.)

This workshop is not just about transcending the fear of death, but also about creating beauty along the way—which is the primary purpose of internal martial arts, should you accept the challenge.

In this workshop you will unpack the Total Dragon-Body Experience through games and other types of joyful intensity. By de-focusing your practice, you will improve the speed at which you learn.

Then, re-Focusing on basic movements, you will discover the source of Tiger-Pouncing spirit, power, and instinct.

This marriage of Dragon-body with Tiger-Pouncing is the root of internal martial arts.

But animal movement is not an end unto itself, it is a door way to spontaneity.

By first mobilizing the areas of your body which are too quiet, 

you will remove the obstacles to whole-body power, and reveal the pathways to maximum speed and efficiency

This work re-Enchants the martial arts through connecting you to its authentic origins. In this workshop, you will become pure animal.
