Master Instructor Ken Van Sickle studied with the famous Professor Cheng Man Ching from 1967 to 1975. Ken was honored as one chosen to carry on the lineage teachings of Cheng Man Ching with an invitation by the Professor to participate in master classes. Ken has achieved an international reputation in Tai Chi, especially swordsmanship, due to his technical mastery and philosophical insights. He conducts Tai Chi form, applications and sword seminars throughout the U.S. and Europe.
Ken will present Professor Cheng Man Ching’s Tai Chi form while sharing firsthand knowledge about how and why the Professor changed the standard form. Ken will elaborate upon the form’s health, social and spiritual benefits. Non competitive sensitivity partner practice will be guided, based on martial classics and applications. Sword play will also be explored including sticking exercises with principles and dynamics from the form.

“Fusion≈Forms” with Master Internal Arts Instructor Joseph Zeisky.
Joseph is a four-time Tai Chi Push-Hands Champion (1987-’91) and a two-time Grand Champion (1989 & ’91) with over 33 years experience practicing and studying internal martial arts and nature-based healing sciences and over 20 years of teaching experience. He is the creator of the unique “ZEIGUA” internal arts teaching method. http://www.zeigua.com
In this unique “Zeigua Arts” workshop, Joseph will present his integrated essence of three beautiful, powerful and interrelated classic Chinese martial arts and health maintenance systems: Qigong, Taiji and Bagua. From these three traditions, classic postures and simple sequences have been extracted to exemplify three dynamic facets contained within all internal martial arts. Healing-fitness empowerment skills, heart-mind balancing and awakening methods will be explored. Additionally, Joseph will demonstrate some practical martial/fighting applications and push-hands techniques.
