Stan’s Video Clips

I’ll try to add video to this page every so often. With life being kinda hectic as I create my new maturitymatters.net project,  work, teach and live life,  creating new vids is hard to find time for.

Independent Living Group Class at Paragon Village in Hackettstown, NJ

I have been working with the independent group for a couple of years now. The ladies (and a few men) are tons of fun, interactive and really want to improve their capabilities. They were my first group and being so, do a lot of teasing, laughing and so on. However, I do make them work.

Yang 10 Form

Notice Grasping the Birds Tail, Push Hands, Brush Knee, Cloud Hands, Press and Pull Back, Repulse Monkey, Overhead Block and a Leg Grab. This form is a good mix of basic moves stretching the waist, torso and shoulders while working on balance and strengthening the legs throughout the routine.

Working on Tai Chi breathing techniques help to slow the movements down and work your respiratory system

There two more video samples of this form here and here

Chi Kung Form

This video shows two sections of a three-part Chi Kung set. The Tai Kwon Do black belt working with me was in this second run through the form, and found it interesting moving at the slow, easy Chi Kung pace instead of the hard fast page of his typical Tai Kwon Do forms.

We had both been through a very long week of 12 – 14 hours days at an IBI business conference. This video was shot at midnight while most others were in their final meetings or already asleep.

I found working with my Tai Chi and Chi Kung forms throughout the week helped me keep my energy level up.  As a member of the staff at the conference I had to be on the go and ready to work hard all week.

  1. Hello, Stan:

    I have finally had the opportunity to review your website and “poke around”. Clearly you seem to have converted an interest into a commercial activity – we should all be so lucky. The seniors in your video (upper middle age, as 80 is these days) seem to derive a benefit more than physical – which is the key to your program. Best of luck, and keep working the angles.

    Regards,

    Allen
