Now that we are all social distancing I considered doing some online classes but with classes at different stages and half of them focusing on partner work I discarded this idea. There also may have been insurance issues with this.
However, much of the material we are working on is already available. If you go to the “Learning Aids” tab above on this site you will find drop down links to pages containing videos of the Yang 108 Form (handily split into sections), the 5 Section Solo Sword Form and the 8 Disc Methods Push Hands.
Those of you working on the Cheng Man-Ching 37 Step Form should have a DVD of this as you should of the Daoyin sets you have covered: Daoyin Shujin Zhuanggu Gong (the second one, Janice!) and some of you also should have Daoyin Baojian Gong and The Song of Daoyin Yangsheng Gong. If you do not have a DVD of any of these that we have done in class then let me know and I’ll get a copy to you.
Remember, these are not teaching videos, just a memory aid of me doing them in the garden or other members of the MIAM doing demonstrations of the relevant material.
If you search YouTube for Masich Internal Arts then you will find many videos of just about all of the MIAM curriculum. Some feature Sam and others his students and some cover the above topics. I am sure they will be of interest and very useful in helping you while away the hours, days and months to come! For those of you in the Monday class you will be able to check out some sensing sword and thirteen power sword stuff that we have started on.
Finally, if you have any questons, run into any problems or just have a brain fart then please feel free to ask me. We can use Skype, Facetime, Whatsapp or Messenger to sort things out by video link.
Meanwhle, take care, stay safe and I’ll see you again on the other side of this thing and remember…….
Take it slow ……….. (NORRIE!!!)
