Self-Defense Class Using an Ordinary Cane

Self-Defense using a cane

Sunday, July 22, 2018
11 AM-12 PM

Bethlehem Lutheran Church
1375 Grand Avenue
Baldwin, NY 11510

Do you feel vulnerable while walking down the street or going to your car, especially when you see a group of people walking towards you? Many people, in particular senior citizens and the disabled, carry a cane and don’t realize it can be used to protect themselves and ward off perpetrators. Are you interested in learning how to defend yourself using a walking stick or cane?
Join us for a one hour, hands-on self-defense class and learn how easy it is to defend yourself using a cane or walking stick.

You do not necessarily have to use a cane to attend.

Fee is a free will donation.

We prefer you use a cane with a hook at one end. If you need a cane contact us in advance and we can order one for you.

Basic Internal Practices

Date: Sunday, July 9, 2017
Location: Milburn Creek Boat Launch, Freeport/Baldwin
Atlantic Avenue, Baldwin, NY across from All Care Physical Therapy
(If inclement weather then the workshop will be held at Bethlehem Lutheran Church, 1375 Grand Ave., Baldwin)

The foundation upon which we base our fighting/healing systems is in the connection between the external movement and the internal movement of qi (chi). The workshop will focus on this connectivity with an emphasis on (4) four fundamental principals:

-       Spinal alignment

-       Moving energy through the dan tien

-       Rooting

-       Yin and yang differentiation.

This workshop is for beginners to advanced students of Tai Chi Chuan regardless of style. It is the expectation of the workshop to increase the depth of internal (qi) work consciously executed in each individual’s Tai Chi practice.

Workshop will be led by Scott Ruff
