New Years Greetings. This is a reminder about a few upcoming events. I hope you take the time to look these over. Please also check out the web site - www.gilmanstudio.com for all the details.


Tui Shou (Push Hands Series)
This unique and complete exploration of Tui Shou starts on Saturday January 8th from 1 to 4 pm at the Studio. The first in this series deals with what is known as two hands. Each player uses one arm, and all the basics of this incredible art are explained. This is a must for any serious Tai Chi player and is useful no matter which form a player practices. Don't be afraid to try this out, as it is not competition, but cooperation that makes this so informative and fun. The cost for the series is $30 for a single session or $100 for the four workshops.

Call Michael at 360 385-5027 with any questions or just show up.
