Online Resource Library

The Online Resource Library is a growing collection of instructional courses and lectures to assist all students who wish to study with us.  Monthly membership grants students access to all of the classes listed below.

This membership offers excellent tools to get started in foundation training as a total beginner and is also an excellent supplemental resource for active students.

Membership includes early access to "In Progress" courses as well as other exclusive content & lectures not available in our a la carte resources.  Online membership offers the most comprehensive training program -- students gain access to various training trajectories and a practice portal to help put together a routine as you work through the different courses.

Currently our membership has two tiers for training -- Tier 1, which covers our entry level empty hand training practices and Tier 2, which begins to incorporate intermediate level training, including our short weapon qigong forms.

Resources are also available for individual purchase here.

More courses, lectures, and training resources will be continually added to this library as time goes on.

Note: This is a monthly subscription with a recurring payment. You can cancel anytime.
