Nicholas Yang Seminar, April 1st and 2nd, 2011

We have a seminar coming up that should prove to be a great learning experience.  Nicholas Yang of Yang Martial Arts will be coming to Eric Parson's School in Independence Missouri on April 1st and 2nd.  It should be a great opportunity to train.  Here is the information I just recieved from Barbara Langley, a publicist for YMAA.com

You won’t want to miss this seminar.  YMAA has supported several seminars along with the Blue River Martial Arts Club (Kris Wilder, Rory Miller) and now Nicholas C. Yang at MCC: Blue River Campus, 20301 E. Highway 78 (23rd St.), Independence, Mo.

Here are some of the details:

Friday, April 1 from 3 to 4:30 p.m. Shuai Jiao (Chinese Wrestling) For those comfortable with break falls
Saturday, April 2 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Chin Na and White Crane.  Open to all.
Cost: $40 and $10 for the first session on April 1.

Nicholas is the president of Yang’s Martial Arts in Boston.  In February 2008, he earned the qualifications  for YMAA Shaolin Instructor.  He teaches Shaolin and Taijiquan at YMAA in Boston.

In addition to the seminar, there will be an opportunity to learn more about the historic aspects of Independence (home of President Harry Truman, two major Civil War battles, and the jumping off point to the trails that settled the Westward expansion.)  AND have dinner with Nicholas Yang and some of the participants.  Rooms have been reserved at a local hotel--reasonably priced.

CONTACT:  Eric Parsons (816) 604-6764 or eric.parsons@mcckc.edu.
If you can make this event it will be worth the cost of admission.  I had an opportunity to work with Nicholas Yang in Seattle at the Crossing the Pond - Martial Arts Expo in August 2010 and he is obviously very knowledgeable about his art.

Hope you can make it.  For people in the Tulsa area, if you want to carpool or caravan to the event please contact me and I will help work out the details.
