This is an old thread that was necro'ed, so not sure if anyone is looking for information, but the last round of free talks in this series ends on Sunday...well worth checking out


In Topic: Internal Training w/Sam F.S. Chin (I Liq Chuan) in Boston, MA March 29-30, 2014

14 May 2014 - 07:00 AM

Seminar is coming up this Saturday!

Anyone interested in internal training is welcome.


For info, go to iliqchuan.com

How was the workshop? 


Also-- I am a long distance student of Kelley Graham. If you look at a few videos on his YouTube channel, you will see me spinning with a few people. Also, some of his lecture series-- you can hear him talking to me in a few of them. :)

Sigung told me that his oldest son is here in Nashville. I wish I could get a workshop going here, though. :(


In Topic: What has TaoBums taught you?

09 May 2014 - 04:15 AM

When I came herein 2007 or 2008, I knew more about the Mopai story then than some people know now. 


I had the opportunity back then to study with Share K. Lew-- I came here thinking people like Pak John and Sifu Lew were a dime a dozen as long as you knew where to look-- boy was I sadly mistaken.


I met Santiago Dobles here and met a close friend who was also around to learn from Dr. Morris with Santi and Tao. 


I learned that Wang Liping is not a myth as my Taiji teacher said to me in 2008--and even though I've forgotten everything I learned from his students, I'd still love to make the trip to China to attend a workshop in a few years-- it would be a fun adventure (and a nice piece for my blog!)


I met Michael Becker here, had a chance to glean all kinds of useful information from his post, and can joke about how Kosta owes me a beer and a few good stories when I make it out to Greece. 


I've learned that the Tao Bums is whatever you make of it-- some people will come here and sit on the sidelines and talk about what's going on in the game--others will get in the game, commit a foul; get frustrated; make a good play; fall; get hurt; win the game; be the hero; but no matter what-- they've done something more than sit around and bullshit. 


Wow...I thought I posted this last year or something-- add that I met some great connections as a result of coming here. Maybe in a few years, with Santiago and Tao's permission, I may be teaching my own spin on KAP in conjunction with my Taiji, kettlebell training, and nutrition programs. 

I also got to finally thank Kostas for writing the Mopai books, and get to joke with him weekly. 


So yes-- Tao Bums is whatever you make of it. I don't frequent the forums as much as I once did, but that's because I've made so many connections and learned so much information that now the time has come to ACT on what I have learned here.
