Buddha Z is completing the Shaolin Chi Mantis Beginner Program video classes. There are 350 videos for 350 classes and about 90 videos to go.
When the SCM Beginner Program is completed at www.ShaolinInteractive.com we will seek funding and begin the 600 videos for the Tai Chi Youth PROGRAMS.
However, Buddha Z wants to start the Tai Chi Youth classes or at least some sort of Tai Chi Youth Program RIGHT NOW, March 2021, even while making the SCM class videos. Today’s youth have less opportunities for sports and exercise than any other time in the last 50 years. We have perhaps THE BEST possible exercise program to offer youth and young adults WITHOUT ANY SPARRING and no broken bones since 1984 when Buddha Zhen began teaching Shaolin Kung Fu and Yang Tai Chi Chuan.
So we will offer LIVE TCY Online Classes by ZOOM. Buddha Zhen has taught 8 of these LIVE Zoom classes so far, and kind of has a handle on the Zoom class concept. We’ve figured out in the last week how to record the classes on a computer while teaching the classes using his iPhone 11 phone/camera to teach the Zoom lessons.
So far this has been challenging and disappointing with adults complaining “This is more exercise than any other Tai Chi class…” Most people in America have NO IDEA what real Tai Chi Chuan is. The Yoga teachers and Karate instructors have put “Tai Chi” on their store windows to capture the ignorant Americans who think that Tai Chi Chuan is an “easy, relaxed, slow moving exercise for old people in a park or YMCA.”
They are wrong! Tai Chi Chuan translates as “Supreme Ultimate Boxing Style.” If you cannot beat up anyone and everyone with your Tai Chi you’ve been scammed and cheated by someone who didn’t have any business teaching whatever it is they claim to know. Tai Chi Chuan is a fantastic self-defense IF YOU ARE TAUGHT TO DO IT FAST.
Plus, your instructor has to know HOW to use the Tai Chi moves for self-defense. Since 1992 our students have visited other Tai Chi schools and reported back to us their disappointments.
Shaolin Chi Mantis Traditional Buddhist Kung Fu and Taoist Tai Chi Chuan is the parent school of Tai Chi Youth nonprofit education organization. If your instructor is not teaching you Taoism they are a fake, a fraud and are cheating you out of your time and money.
So, we’ve decided to leave all the Tai Chi scammers alone, and stop arguing with the American Tai Chi students who don’t believe in doing kicking exercises and pushups… to ONLY teach YOUTH classes to persons 13 to 20 who have not been poisoned with “Yoga Tai Chi.” Young adults from 20 to 29 will be allowed in our online classes if they are WILLING to learn REAL TAI CHI and Shaolin Kung Fu. The combination of Shaolin Kung Fu and Yang Tai Chi Chuan have been proven by Buddha Zhen in prisons, rehabs, public schools, YMCAs, YWCA, church programs and public parks to improve the health, well-being and self-awareness of hundreds of young students. Most students will even see their public school grades rise dramatically while students of our Tai Chi Youth programs. Unfortunately, we’ve also seen their grades decline after they quit our Tai Chi Youth programs. So stick with it. After the first semester you will have a complete understanding of what Tai Chi Youth and Shaolin Chi Mantis have to offer you and what is expected of you to succeed in our programs.
Buddha Zhen Shen-Lang “Spirit Wolf of Truth” (Richard Del Connor) has been teaching these programs since 1984 when he graduated the Tai Mantis Federation program. This is detailed in the “About Buddha Zhen” page of this website. He has received extensive training in Taoism, Buddhism, Confucianism and Strategy since 1984 and was certified by Grandmaster Wong Jack Man of the San Francisco Jing Mo Association as an official Jing Mo Master, called a “Shifu,” which translates as “Master Father.”
