Tai Chi Healthways Summer Camp Tuesday - Saturday, June 25-29, 2019 San Diego, USA

 summer camp2019ad

This will be a combination of tai chi, Qigong, and Neigong (the internal power) for your inner energy cultivation workshop.  Everyone is welcome and encouraged to participate.  The goal of these 5-day is to facilitates health improvement, disease prevention, healing assistance, self-defense.  Build your internal strength while simultaneously bringing healing and rejuvenation to the body.  

On the self-defense aspect, we teach you not to meet incoming forces head on with force, but rather to redirect these negative forces to where they are no longer harmful to self or to others, rely on body structure, internal energy and sensitivity rather than muscular strength or athleticism.  
There are many different tai chi forms or routines in the world today. No matter what styles you are learning, this summer camp will teach you the core concepts to enhance your practice.  We will cover as many styles and forms as we can, Chen, Yang, Wu, Sun,... even weapons.  We are here to direct you how to start and progress on your practice.  For advanced students and instructors, we will challenge you for the deeper level skills. 
You can bring in any questions related to tai chi and Qigong.  We set up time for question and answer everyday.  Tai Chi Healthways' summer camp is always fun, informative, and give people inspiration. 
******This year we will also have one special topic - energy points for self-healing massage and attacking pressure points for self-defense.  Dian-xue, or dian-mai (alternatively Dim-Mak"), using seemingly less force targeted at specific pressure points and meridians areas to control an opponent.  You will learn to use a Bodhi seed (provided at the workshop) as the tool for massage and dian-xue.  Bodhi seed is believed to be the most sacred part of tree and represents the spiritual enlightenment of Buddha.  Each seed has unique pattern, and the surface becomes smooth and shiny if you use it as a keychain.  It is a good luck symbol and a good self-defense utensil. 
***** We will provide network/socialization opportunities: a potluck party on Friday evening at a student's house within walking distance from the training facility, and Saturday noontime potluck in a nearby park. 
Register Fee: $60 to cover the premium Bodhi tree seed keychain (about 3 inches long and 1 inch in diameter), T-shirt, facility rental, everyday tea and snacks.

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.
