Teachers:

  • Treinel Michael ‘Puck’ Kranz — For 4 years, he studied in Oakland under CM Rogerio and Mestre Jurandir, as well as the other mestres of FICA, which transformed his life for the better. Upon moving back to his native New York in 2004, Puck sought to continue studying, playing and living Capoeira Angola, which eventually led to co-founding the group in New York.

Iaido at Byakkokan Dojo Byakkokan Dojo 1 Photo

Class is broken down in 3 aspects:

  • Kata is the practice of basics and forms;
  • Tameshigiri (or test cutting), in Toyama Ryu Batto Jutsu, is to test the cutting ability of the sword, gain experience in striking a solid object and improve timing, distance, angle and grip;
  • Gekken is free play or sparring. We use foam swords, but although they do use foam, they are not flexy or soft. They have a dense center and can do some damage and understand gekken is not for everyone.

Taoist Martial Arts progress clearly and intelligently from beginning skills to advanced abilities. The School of Natural Chinese Martial Arts offers complete training in the chief systems of Traditional and Taoist Martial Arts. Learning the fundamentals one system usually takes 2 years. Once one system is finished the others are much easier to learn.

Instructor Classes are are all small and semi-private.

  • Complete System: This level is for students who want to learn the complete system of Natural Chinese Martial Arts;
  • Single System: This is for students who wish to focus on one system. Each system contains Taoist Philosophy and Chin-Chiao Each system usually takes two years. After one system has been learned, the others are much easier to understand and usually take one year each to learn;
  • Tai-Chi & Taoist Longevity: This is for students who have little interest in martial arts but wants to benefit from Taoist theories of following nature and cultivating energy.

Each system consists of 6 sections. It takes an average of two years to learn the basics of each system and achieve a 1st degree Black Belt. During the course of regular, weekly study, all the skills are developed. However, each section can be studied via intense private or seminar study.
