Tai Chi and Yoga at Far East Lounge Far East Lounge 1 Photo 1 Video

We will encourage and help you learn physical exercises that are right for you: Tai-chi, Chair Exercise, Qigong, walking, etc.

All of the activities will be organized by age-group as well as interest. And we encourage people to become volunteers at the Lounge, keeping the doors open, looking after one another, teaching classes. When there is enough interest in an activity and when we can identify someone to teach or lead an activity, Far East Lounge is the place to do it.

In the evenings, the space will be available to community groups (use fees may apply) for karaoke, business meetings, exhibits, rehearsals, etc. We are planning lots of "special events" as well.

Wushu at National Wushu Training Center National Wushu Training Center 3 Photo

While we do teach basic self defense we do not fight in our school. At the same time we do not teach dance either. Wushu has evolved into the performance sport you see today and while the movements are highly exaggerated and beautiful, there are always hidden applications beyond the surface.

We adhere to a strict four year black belt program which includes 1 year of basics in wushu and basic self defense, followed by 3 years of empty hand (Changquan, fighting set, and Nanquan), weapons (sabre, staff, sword and spear), including beginning, intermediate and advanced compulsory routines and advanced fighting sets.

International, individual, traditional routines and weapons are taught after the four year Black Belt program has been completed.

Coaches:

  • Eric Chen;
  • Matthew Osborne.
