It’s almost Spring, and Daylight Savings Time just just about upon us. But best of all, it looks like COVID is starting to recede. What does that mean for us? Well, we’re still going to keep masking, and requiring vaccinations for in-person participation, but since the numbers in Chester County are now as low as they’ve been in a very long time, we’re going back to interactive drills where you can (gasp!) touch someone else.
We have a few changes from last month which I will highlight here.
First, on Wednesdays, we’re shifting our Chujiquan class from 6pm to 5pm so that we can add Lianbuquan a more advanced class at 6pm. On the weekends, we’ve now done some rearrangement so that Meihua Daoshu (saber) is on Saturdays from 1-2pm while all the Taijiquan classes have been condensed to a single time, Sundays at 1pm. While we would like to expand Taijiquan to cover other days as in the past, we’re hoping that by having a single weekend day, we will be able to get more of you together at a single time and be able to start doing pushhands.
In mid March, I’ll be headed down to Florida, just a hop-skip-and-jump from where my sifu, Artie Aviles, lives. If our schedules mesh, I’ll be doing some of my first in-person training with him since the plague started. If not, at least I’ll be able to train in some sunny weather over spring break. And then hopefully, I’ll be able to return refreshed for the rest of the spring. We will not have any scheduled classes online or otherwise that week – but, it’s possible that I may be able to do an impromptu class or two from Florida. If so, I’ll send out an email with time and content information at least 24 hours ahead of time.
Anyhow, it’s just a short post this month. You can see our full schedule below. I hope you are all well, and I look forward to working with more of you in person as the pandemic wanes.
All the best,
