    June 3, 2005 - Peng Jing: The Heart of Taijiquan Power: The taiji masters of old spent countless hours in standing postures designed to develop internal power or "peng jing." Once developed, that power was then expressed through form practice and application, leading to the stories of their abilities that made them legend. Today, unfortunately, standing practice is often overlooked or misunderstood - assumed to be a waste of time by those who don't understand its purpose. In this workshop, Master Gary Torres, will share with you a core principle of taiji practice known by the great masters for centuries - the internal power of peng jing. Through demonstration, Master Torres will show you the importance of peng jing and the role it plays in internal martial arts. You will also have the opportunity to experience correct standing techniques yourself under Master Torres' expert guidance, so you can add this critical part of internal training to your own practice.

    June 4, 2005 - Xingyiquan: The Power of the 5 Elements: Xingyiquan or xingyi, is the rarest, and possibly oldest, of the internal arts taught today, with documented references dating back to the 11th century. Though outwardly simple to learn, with only 5 basic movements at its core, it possesses subtleties that can take a lifetime to understand, and can be devastating in the hands of a true master. In this workshop, Master Gary Torres will teach you the 5 basic moves if xingyi, known as the five elements, and give you a small taste of its power by demonstrating some of its applications. This workshop will be 90 minutes well spent as you learn the core moves of a martial art you can take home with you and practice.

    June 4, 2005 - Chinese Medicine: Ancient Remedies for Peak Performance: Chinese medicine represents a body of knowledge that stretches back thousands of years. Based on the concept of balance in the body, together with the body's relationship to the 5 elements, diagnosis of common ailments is often based on deficiencies or excesses in the body's organs or environment. In this workshop, Doctor Gary Torres, licensed acupuncturist and MD, will teach you about the 12 meridians, together with command points, alarm points, source points, tonification and sedation points, and associated points. You'll learn how all these points are incorporated into Chinese 5-element theory and how you can apply them through acupressure points for both martial and healing applications. Please note that information in this workshop is for educational and entertainment purposes only and should not be viewed as a replacement for advice from your doctor.

    Study of the 8 Roads As one of the three primary internal arts, baguazhang has generated a growing fascination over the years. Favored by the imperial guard of China as a martial art designed to operate at all ranges with multiple opponents, practitioners are often described as tornados in combat. In this workshop, Master Gary Torres will teach you the fundamentals of Dragon Heart Baguazhang, a bagua style known for its multifaceted applications. Combining circle walking with an intimate knowledge of the xiantian bagua, Master Torres will teach you through demonstration and hands on examples, why baguazhang is often considered the most versatile of the internal arts.

    Baguazhang is an internal martial art that expresses itself through circular movements which use a combination of techniques including yielding neutralizing, sticking, coiling and spinning. Legend states that it was taught in a manner which allowed martial artists to adapt the principles of ba gua to the arts they had already mastered. Thus, throughout history dozens of permutations of this internal art have spread and flourished each style a unique art unto itself by expressing its coiling energies and power in many different ways. With this workshop, Doctor Gary Torres continues the Dragon Heart Series, a program designed to teach students the entire Dragon Heart Baguazhang system in just nine weekends. Each weekend will begin with a review of training basics, allowing new students to begin the program at any time. No matter when you enter, nine weekends later your training is completed, including an intense "applications weekend," where you'll get to bring it all together. Join Doctor Torres this weekend as reviews the basics, the eight circle walking postures, the eight palm exercises, Review, Monkey Basic Posture Circle walking turn-a-round, Lí Pole Method, Back Body Palm, and 4th Zhang of the continuous Dragon Heart Form. Whether you're completely new at Baguazhang, or an old hand looking to begin studying a new system, don't miss this opportunity to train with one of the top martial artists in the country, as he guides you into the very depths of the Dragon's Heart.
