Certification is available via video testing online for those who wish to progress in rank in this system. Contact Prof. Lewis for details on this at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students are introduced to Prof. Phil Lewis, and his background, as well as introduced to this unique Martial Arts system.
The student learns a unique Chi-Gung breathing drill which involves four movements with symbolic counterparts of elements of prayer.
Here the student learns a set/form which practices seven different stances together with important hand positions/moves. This works the balance and strengthens the legs as well as trains the hands and arms to be familiar with certain techniques.
In this short Tai Chi set the student learns eight important flowing movements and principles with both natural names and symbolic names. These moves hide many self defense and combat applications which one learns later on.
