2020 program – Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto
February 15th – 16th 2020, Nei Gong/Baquazhang
Steve Galloway will be teaching Nei Gong Level 1 and Alain Jachiet will introduce our Baquazhang Level 1 syllabus on February 15th – 17th 2019 in Toronto. The event marks the introduction of Baquazhang to our syllabus and because of the demands on space imposed by practices like circle walking, numbers will be capped and we recommend early booking to avoid disappointment. Our Level 1 events are a rolling program of structured quarterly martial events to help practitioners:
- consolidate the lower Dan Tian
- improve Qi circulation through the body’s major channels
- purge energetic pathogens from the body
Syllabus content features a program of Qi Gong, Dao Yin, and Lower Dan Tian Gong which is delivered progressively depending on the ability of participating students.

- Song breathing practices
- Qi Gong
Baquazhang Level 1 expands our Nei Gong program, and Alain Jachiet will introduce the following skill sets:
- Straight-line/linear walking

Alain Jachiet joins our team at a high point. In 2019 Alain won the United States Federation (USKSF) gold medal for Baqua. His expert knowledge and care for detail enhance the quality of our programs enormously.

The Nei Gong process is a classical process and is, at times, very strong. For this reason we do not recommend that anybody with psychological disorders or those with serious medical issues/needs attend these events. There are many ‘medical’ Qi Gong schools that would be more appropriate for these kinds of needs.
Nei Gong is also unsuitable for pregnant women or anybody under 18 years old. Lastly we reserve the right to ask any student to leave the training immediately if we deem the training to be unsuitable for them, or a risk to their well-being.
