Grandmaster Sin Thé will teach the Hsing I Six Harmony Broadsword form at his annual summer seminar in Lexington, KY. The form is composed of two sections and forty postures. Grandmaster Sin describes it as moving like a “mad dragon” that is turning its body everywhere while chopping and slashing your opponents in half! If you enjoyed learning the Hsing I Reversible Broadsword then you will love this one!
2-4 pm Sun 8/25 at the North Austin School: Internal Walking Tai Chi Seminar $80 before Aug. 19th, $90 after

Students from age 4 through adult, Kung Fu AND Tai Chi compete in open hand forms, weapons and sparring! It's a fun-filled day with great opportunities to test your skill, train your nerve and hang out with one of the most supportive and friendly groups of people you will ever have the pleasure to meet! There's really nothing like the feeling of inspiration and camaraderie that fills the air at our tournaments. We're very proud of that!
parents and students, Tournaments teach you bravery and good sportsmanship like nothing else. Taking the floor to spar or perform a kata, regardless of the outcome, makes it far easier to doing something outside your comfort zone in other areas of life. And the more often you do that, the less uncomfortable it becomes to go for your goals and dreams! They teach us to work hard and do our best and to keep trying - in all things!
All Kids Get a Trophy (either placement or participation, because bravery deserves a big reward!) and likewise, All Adults Get a Medal.
