Chinese Martial Arts Workshop by Mr. ZHAO Jilong
|Instructors:||Mr. ZHAO Jilong, Martial Artist|
|Date:||Sunday, October 2, 2016|
|Time:||3 pm – 4 pm|
|Location:||Pendleton Room, Michigan Union|
In this workshop, Master Zhao will teach practical qigong techniques which improve physical structural integrity, reduce stress, and help us be more in tune with the subtle movements and energies of our bodies. These techniques will be gentle exercises suitable for all ages, but those interested in more intense movements such as pressure point striking 点穴 will have the opportunity to try different techniques. Come experience the fascinating world of ‘internal power’ with Master Zhao, and learn simple, practical techniques you can apply to your everyday life.
ZHAO Jilong has been practicing qigong and kungfu since he was 5 years old. His specialty is internal power, which includes things similar to the ‘five-point-palm-exploding-heart-technique’ from Kill Bill, but also seemingly unrelated skills like Chinese calligraphy and playing the zither. Master Zhao is the host of several popular Chinese TV documentaries about traditional Chinese martial arts, as well as the K-1 Global Kungfu Ambassador.
