Magwood’s Martial Arts April Update Update

 

Spring is here and so is another great month of Online Training. Don’t forget to sign up for April’s Classes.

 

What’s new for April?

 

New Weapon and a New Form

 

My Jong Law Horn Pai Saber (Si Fa Do, Falling Snow Saber)

After months of solid study we have completed the Study of the Staff for now. I am very proud of the students who worked so hard to pick up the foundations of the weapon and the very complex Shepherd's Staff Set. All those lessons and the Sectional Archive of the Staff are still available if you would like to review or take on the study.

 

Onto the Saber!

The iconic single edged sword of China. We will be taking our look at the Saber (Do) from the perspective of the My Jong Law Horn Pai System and the Si Fa Do Set.

Jump in as we learn the foundations of the weapon and progress to learning the Falling Snow Saber. One of the most beautiful and deadly sets to learn.

Local martial artists I have one wooden practice saber available for purchase for $45.00. You do not need a saber to participate another style of practice sword or a piece of dowel will get you started.

 

Hsing I Chuan

March brought us to the end of our look at the 12 Animal Forms of Hsing I Chuan. After months of study we have looked at all of the 12 Animal Forms. As always these subjects are a lifetime study and the lessons will be available on our archive for review or new study.

 

Introducing the Returning Fist #1 Set.

Blending your knowledge of the Five Fists and the 12 Animals the Returning Fist #1 Set is a nice compact set that blends aspects and movements from both the Elements and Animals.

Haven’t studied the Elements or Animals? Thats OK the Returning Fist can be a stand alone study and a great entrance point into a study of the fantastic style of Hsing I Chuan.

 

Sectional Studies of Forms

There has been a really positive response to the individual form archives. Many people are accessing them as part of their weekly study.

 

Available Now

Tai Chi Beijing Form

Moi Fa Gim (Choi Li Fut Double Edge Sword Set)

Shepard’s Staff (My Jong Law Horn Pai Staff Set)

Five Element Fists of Hising I Chuan

Tam Tuey

Tai Chi Double Edge Sword (Gim), Short Form

 

In progress and available soon

20 Chi Kung

8 Pieces of Silk

7 Star Boxing

Fighting Fan

Sup Bat Sow (7 Star Praying Mantis)

 

 

These section studies are in their own separate archive collection. They go through the forms a few movements at a time from multiple angles from opening to closing. They will be an excellent tool for remembering forms you have learned or picking up the base movements of a new set. If there is any set you would like to see let me know.

For a limited time I am introducing the archives at a reduced cost of $25 for unlimited access to the archive. Payment can be made by etransfer to [email protected] (security question answer martialarts)

 

 

I am still trying to grow the online club and could use your help. Encourage others to give it a try.

Staying fit both physically and mentally is a challenge during the COVID shutdowns and we need to be creative in finding ways to stay active and positive. Martial Arts training can accomplish this. Please pass on this info to anyone you think would benefit from training with Magwood’s Martial Arts.

Online Learning is available as both Scheduled Live Interactive Classes using the Zoom platform and recored lessons on the Anytime Training Lesson Archive (hosted by LifeTales). The live Zoom classes are posted to the LifeTales archive on the same day as the classes.. With online training scheduling and location will not stop anyone from being able to participate.
