The Blue Siytangco Taiji Kungfu Academy offers a complete martial arts program for all age groups and athletic abilities. Our curriculum provides comprehensive instruction in Chen Style Taijiquan, an ancient, battle tested system that develops the whole person. Along with learning the four combat elements of Ti (kicking & leg techniques), Da (striking and hand techniques), Shuai (grappling, wrestling, throwing), and Na (joint locking), students will also study weapons training, meditation, qigong, Chinese philosophy, culture, and martial ethics. Students will also have the opportunity to participate in light to full contact sparring, compete in national and international tournaments, and travel to China to visit and train in Chenjiagou, the ancestral home of Chen Style Taijiquan.
For centuries, the Chinese have used taiji, not only for its martial efficacy, but also for its many health benefits. Numerous studies have shown the powerful healing effects it has on the practitioner’s mind and body.
You may be thinking, “Isn’t taiji just for old people?” Absolutely NOT! Chen style taijiquan has something to offer EVERY age group. It can be the most gentle form of healing and exercise (Qigong) for the elderly, as well as a rigorous martial art (Kungfu) for the young. No matter the age one begins, it’s benefits can be seen.

OUR CHINESE MARTIAL ARTS CLASSES:
The full curriculum of the Taiji Kungfu Academy tailored to the needs of children. Alongside physical excellence and self defense, children will learn leadership skills, confidence, and discipline. Students will also have the opportunity to compete in tournaments at the national and international levels.
Adult Taiji Kungfu
Learn the complete traditional curriculum of Chen Family Taijiquan, including bare-hand and weapons forms. Improve overall health, strength, endurance and coordination in these classes.
Kungfu Kickboxing (Sanshou)
Sanshou is the combat sport element of Kungfu. This class emphasizes punching, kicking, and throwing techniques, while building a strong base in cardiovascular conditioning, flexibility, and muscular strength.
Self Defense (Quandao)
This class focuses on the combat elements of Ti (kicking and leg techniques), Da (hand techniques), Shuai (grappling, wrestling, and throwing), and Na (joint locking and pressure points) against single, multiple, unarmed and armed attackers. This is training outside of a rules based sport for pure defense of your self and loved ones.
Push Hands (Tuishou)
Tuishou refers to sensitivity exercises that are unique to the internal martial arts of China. This is a form of two person exercises that develop whole body listening skills, rooting, and yielding. As an optional part of this class, Shuai Tuishou will also be taught. This is the combat sport element that focuses primarily on grappling, wrestling, and throwing.
To learn how to defend yourself in the real world, you must learn how to recognize and utilize weapons in your environment. In this class the usage of traditional weapons (swords, knives, spears, etc) will be taught as well as understanding non-traditional weapons (pens, scarves, hammers, etc).
Senior Tai Chi & Qigong
Learn traditional Chen Style Taijiquan tailored to the needs of senior students. There is a heavy emphasis on mindful movement and circulation of Qi in these classes.
Learn different methods of inner contemplation and mindfulness. If you are anxious you are dwelling too much in the future; if you are depressed you are dwelling too much in the past. Neither of these really exist. Only the present exists. Be present.
