Grasping the 18 Hands of the Lohan
Instructor: Shizi Dale Dugas

According to history, the legendary Da Mo (Bodhidharma), came to the Shaolin temple and saw that the monks had difficulty staying awake during prolonged meditation. To solve the problem, Da Mo eventually devised three distinct exercise sets, designed to strengthen the monks and increase their health. These exercises eventually formed the basis of what we now know as Shaolin kungfu. In this workshop, Shizi Dale Dugas will teach you one of these powerful qigong sets, the 18 Hands of the Lohan. You will receive step by step instructions for each posture and exercise. You will also learn how to use the system to improve your health, and increase your internal power. Join Shizi Dugas as he helps you grasp, the 18 hands of the Lohan.

Tui Shou to Shuai Jiao: Giving Yourself the Edge in Push Hands
Instructor: Shizi Dale Dugas

Shuai Jiao is a grappling martial art, developed in the Zhou Dynasty, between the 12th and 13th centuries. Considered the oldest existing Chinese martial art in the world, it is comprised of throwing techniques, strikes, blocks, joint locks, and attacks on pressure points. Tui Shou taijiquan, better known as push hands, is a precursor to sparing which is designed to train listening skills and control of opponents. In this workshop, Shizi Dale Dugas of Boston Baguazhang will teach you how to merge the ancient techniques of Shuai Jiao with the complex skills of push hands, to give you the edge in any situation. You will learn how to blend throws, strikes and joint locks, with your listening skills. Join Shizi Dugas in this hands on workshop that marries the oldest martial art, with the most complex.
