2014 Training Week

2014 Tai Chi Healthways San Diego Summer Tai Chi Training Week. Tuesday – Sunday, July 22-27, 2014

Come to learn authentic Tai hi from Jesse Tsao, Ph.D. directly, come to discover and bring back home the proven self-help techniques you can use to improve your tai chi practice or teaching.  If you have the desire to carry forward Dr.Jesse Tsao’s teaching, get teaching certificate from Tai Chi Healthways in the same trip.

This will be a comprehensive Tai Chi training week for all skill levels: beginners, intermediate/advanced, and instructors. Each session will be a combination of theory/concept training as a whole group and semi-group development of individual interests. You can switch between groups during the semi-group guided practice.

Daily training structure:
1, Tai chi Nei-gong internal energy cultivation practice.  
For each day, we will start with a special short form as “template method” of tai chi internal energy cultivation practice.  
2, Beginners will continue to work on this short form, memorize the routine, and intermediate-instructors will set up semi-group to apply the internal energy cultivation methods into their long forms, such as Chen Old Frame, Yang Long Form, or any other style/routine participants like to form a semi-group.
3, Tai Chi Push Hands.  Each day, the last 90 minutes, we will try push hands, (optional Qigong practice for people not interested in push hands),  one group from energy circulation approach; and one group from competition approach. Push hands, a two-person Tai Chi exercise, is a practice to understand another's force in order to handle his pressure and adhere to him at his retreat.  It can improve your sensitivity and build strength and flexibility of your core muscles.

Event List


Tai Chi Healthways Association has been developing Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for group exercise leader/instructor and personal trainer through its national and worldwide workshop/seminar program, publication and research. Led by Master Jesse Tsao, Ph.D.,the CEUs created by Tai Chi Healthways are recognized by learners, group exercise instructors, and employers. A CEU is defined as ten contact hour of participation in a recognized continuing education program, with qualified instruction and sponsorship. CEU records are widely used to provide evidence of completion of continuing education requirements mandated by certification bodies, professional societies, or governmental licensing boards. The records also provide employers with information on training pertinent to particular occupations. Not all CEUs are created equal. The term CEU is in the public domain. Any organization may award a traditional CEU without requiring accreditation. That’s why it is important to look for Tai Chi Healthways CEUs so that an individual can assure employers, credentialing associations, licensing bodies and others that he has completed a quality program.
*Additional document fee for the CEU certificate is $20.
