When he was only six years old, his father – the Grand Master Ruo-Shui Cai started teaching him the traditional Fujian (or Fukien) Shaolin Temple’s Kungfu. After five years of rigorous and intensive Tong-Zi-Gong, Zhuang-Gong, Luo-Han-Quan, and Shaolin Quan as well as Yi-Jin-Jing training, he and his younger brother, Damu Cai were sent to the Grand Master Zi-Shen Zhuang’s home for more intensified and strict kungfu training. Everyday, except a few holidays, Ying and Damu got up at 4:00 am and ran 3 miles to Grand Master Zhuang’s home to be taught privately by Grand Master Zhuang for two hours before open class students arriving, then practiced under the Master’s sons’ guidance with open class students for another two hours. In the afternoon, after school, they practiced two more hours. In the evening, before the bedtime, they practiced two hours again. Through such an intensified training and thanks to the great quality of Grand Masters Zhuang, Ying Cai had grasped a variety of traditional Chinese martial arts including both southern and northern styles. Eleven years later, Ying Cai left the hometown Quanzhou City to pursue his college degree and was very fortunate to learn the legendary Grand Master Wan Laisheng’s Zi-Ran-Men and other classic Chinese martial arts. Benefited from the rigorous Tong-Zi-Gong training in his youth age, after more than 45 years of his first Kungfu lesson, Ying Cai still can do the splits and have to practice as often as possible. Since his 90 years old father, the grand Master Ruo-Shui Cai is still practicing and wants his sons do so.

• The Art of Pen and Sword - FRI, July 20: 5:30pm - 6:50pm
The Chinese martial arts are based on the harmony of yin and yang. This is expressed as wu (martial) and wen (scholar). All too often, practitioners fixate on the wu and neglect the wen. Today, every serious practitioner must engage the growing body of martial literature. What's more, every school must now publish to stay viable, not only magazine articles, but also websites, publicity material and newsletters. Every lineage must work to document their heritage accurately or it will be lost. Gene will discuss how to balance the art of pen with the art of sword with an emphasis on current publishing trends. He'll give you 'hands on' applications of how to use writing for self cultivation or mass marketing. Whether you're looking to publish an article or working on a private journal to further your practice, this workshop will provide you with some insider's tools and tricks to get the most out of your work. Please note that even if you've taken on of Gene's writing workshops before, each workshop is unique because they are based on the most current research available.

He has worked for the Sports Ministry in the former USSR as a consultant to their national athletic program. He worked for Dan Reeves with the Denver Broncos on coordination and visualization techniques, and he has also worked with the Federal Bureau of Investigation to teach their SWAT team high-level martial arts techniques.

Shirfu Christophe is a multitalented musician, screenplay writer, and has starred in five martial arts action films, most recently "Tiger Street" (appearing on Showtime in December 2003) and "Dancing Bear" to be released at the end of 2004.

• Traditional Kung Fu Fighting - SUN, July 22: 7:00am - 8:20am
Shirfu Christophe Clarke will conduct one of the most important seminars ever on traditional kung fu and shaolin fighting to prepare Chinese Kung Fu practitioners for tournaments. The true purpose is to restore the Lost Treasure of traditional fighting. In most Kung Fu tournaments today the fighting level doesn't equal the quality of the Kung Fu form routines (still looks somewhat like a karate match). This seminar will demand the use of your form whether you're tai chi, tiger crane, or long fist, etc. Anything less and you will be disqualified. Why do the form if you can't fight with it?

This seminar is designed for practitioners who want to uphold the parody of chinese boxing. This is a difficult task and it will take time. It is our responsibility to do so or it will remain a lost treasure. This seminar is a must and will be enlightening and educational for all levels, male and female.

• Tai Chi Push Hands Principles
- SUN, July 22: 8:30am - 9:50am
The true meaning of push hands is the art of being pushed, not pushing. This seminar will prepare tai chi players for tournaments. The emphasis will be on the use of the tai chi principles of relax, move slowly, flow like a river, circular motion, root, don't lock joints, coordinate breathing with body motion and to move the body as a unit. This is the essence of tai chi, practitioners must learn to use the techniques from their form like ward off, roll back, press and push, fairlady, raise hands, etc. (anything less is not tai chi). It is essential to learn to execute these techniques in the true essence in the principles of tai chi. There should be no break in speed. When there is a break in speed we end up with sumo wrestling and lots of injuries.

This seminar will provide the tools needed to protect you from a real attack. Remember Tai Chi Chuan translated means "grand ultimate boxing" one of the highest levels of martial arts achievement. It is our duty to restore the essence and tradition of this Lost Treasure in the art of being pushed. Take the challenge.

Stick Acupressure for relaxation, enjoyment, healing & martial art
FRI, July 20: 2:30pm - 3:50pm
In tai chi practice and other martial arts, we focus a great deal on rooting the feet and strengthening the lower body. Now, by using the sticks, we can take care of the upper body. They can be used for both meditation and exercise, helping to calm the mind and release muscle tension. When used for acupressure, the sticks can stimulate qi flow to open and connect the yin and yang channels. You can do acupressure on yourself or, for more enjoyment, practice with a partner. This type of acupressure improves the health of our nervous system, spine, neck, shoulders and arms. When you learn these techniques and develop strength and internal energy, the sticks can be used for martial arts. It is an amazing exercise – very enjoyable and popular.

• Meridian Qigong for internal power, rooting, self defense and health
FRI, July 20: 5:30pm - 6:50pm
Good health is important to everyone. In order to have a strong, healthy system, we need to gain qi energy. Most people who practice qigong have learned to generate qi and store it in the dan tien by using the right breathing method. Qi energy can then move throughout the body, flowing through the acupuncture meridians. With meridian qigong, we open and connect the seven main yin channels to promote the circulation of qi, and use the internal power generated for healing, rooting and self-defense. When we learn about the meridians and experience the sensation of qi flowing through, qigong practice becomes much more powerful. When the qi, body and mind are balanced and in harmony, your “shen” (spirit) will be higher and more peaceful. Easy to learn, come and try it!

Grandmaster Willy Lin was born in 1938. He is presently 68 years old, and has been practicing Martial Art for 49 years.

From 1960 until he emigrated to the United States by way of Brazil, he was head instructor and assistant to Wang, Jyue Jen, the martial artist who introduced T'ien Shan P'ai from China to Taiwan.

Everything Grandmaster Lin knows about martial art, he learned from his teacher, Wang Jyue Jen. Lin has never studied any other system, or trained with any other person.

Lin became a student of T'ien Shan P'ai in 1957, in his hometown of Taichung, Taiwan. In 1962, Wang considered Lin and his classmate, Tsong Chung Chen, his most advanced students. He invited them to receive special training at that time, and performed a private ceremony for them to formalize their commitment to T'ien Shan P'ai. Grandmaster Lin isn't sure if they were the first to be selected for this training, because Wang never spoke of any others before whom he had trained at this level. Wang only spoke of "students", and "old students."

Once the "special training" was completed, Lin, alone, was asked to become Wang's assistant, and head instructor. For the next six years, Lin taught at Wang's school, "Lei Sheng Wu Yuan", or "Thunder Sound Martial Arts Garden."

In 1968, Lin emigrated from Taiwan to Sao Paulo, Brazil, where he taught martial art to the Sao Paulo Chinese Association, and to the Sao Paulo Police Department. In 1970, he came to the U.S. In 1971, he opened his first school in the Washington, DC area. Grandmaster Lin taught, actively, until the early 1980s.

So far as Grandmaster Lin knows, he was the first person to introduce, and to teach Wang Jyue Jen's system of T'ien Shan P'ai in this country.

Presently, Grandmaster Lin does not have a school. All his teaching is done through seminar/workshops, which he offers at various locations around the country, and through his instructional DVD series on the Tien Shan Pai system.

• Tai-Chi Traditional Push Hands - FRI, July 20: 7:00pm - 8:20pm
"Push Hands," also known as "Tway Sho," is a two person practice that is part of T'ai Chi Training. Grandmaster Lin teaches the traditional, "old style" techniques of this practice, which helps students gain an understanding of leverage, reflex, sensitivity, timing, coordination and positioning. It also helps the student to learn to avoid, neutralize and redirect the incoming forces of his or her opponent's attack while, at the same time, generating, coordinating, and delivering power to them. These skills are very important in gaining a deeper understanding of Tai Ch. They are also useful to any martial artist wanting to become more effective, when fighting at close range.

• Tien Shan Pai Chin-Na - FRI, July 20: 8:30pm - 9:50pm
Qinna is the Chinese art of "seize and control." It is used to restrain opponents through techniques for locking joints or muscles and tendons by applying leverage and using pressure points. Grandmaster Lin teaches those traditional "old style" techniques, which defend against grabs, holds and chokes, and which are used to immobilize, subdue, or control assailants.

Since these techniques require very little force, they are especially effective against larger and stronger opponents. They are important skills for when you are in close contact with an opponent, and are especially useful for law enforcement, and/or in situations when you need to subdue an assailant, without injuring them.

Both workshops are suitable for all martial arts styles and all levels of experience, including beginners with no previous training. Don't miss this opportunity to learn from one of the best!
