I’ll be spending the next few days in Bandon, Oregon at an internal martial arts workshop. All the classes take place on the beach and are taught by many talented instructors, including my tai chi teacher Gene Burnett of Ashland, Oregon and Joel Hartshorne and Andy Dale of the Xin Qi Shen dojo in Seattle, Washington.
Feel free to look at the class schedule. I’ll be attending nearly all of them, probably six hours a day total.
I’ll also do some walkin’ on the extensive beach at Bandon. The workshop is timed for the extreme low tides around the new moon, so I’ll be exploring the tide pools and grooving on the flat beach stretching way out to the waves.
