The Zen Teachings of Martial Arts


The Zen Teachings of Martial Arts

With the help of Traditional Korean Martial Arts Movements, it is the aim of this class to let participants empty their mind.

The so-called Poomsaes are forms straight out of Korean Taekwondo. The movements within this form consist of punches, kicks and blocks that are carefully choreographed in the shape of a tangram straight out of the Daoist I Ching.

The movements help you breathe properly as they invite you to take control over every muscle in your body so you are actually able to let go of your mind. Your entire body will mimic breathing in and breathing out as you move across all corners of the world and galaxy.

Zen, or Seon in Korean, will be achieved as a participant goes through the movements and concentrates on JUST the movement. Emptying one's mind brings about a silent state of mind. This meditation in movement is comparable to Chinese Tai Chi and is open to people of all ages and backgrounds.

Participants can choose to do these forms barefooted as is traditional or wear shoes if they have problems with their feet. Bring some water, a towel and lots of love.

The instructor, Kevin Heller, is a 1st-degree black belt in Taekwondo.
