Challenge yourself to self-heal. This ancient, fairly intense form of qigong serves as KoBang’s basic healing practice. Circulating qi (energy/breath of life) through the body in stationary, standing positions, our intent is to increase concentration, stamina, bone density and bone marrow production of blood cells. Even in seemingly still positions, we attain a perspiring workout doing this form of qigong. When we circulate qi, we energize all the body meridians referred to in classical Oriental medicine.  The Beginner class still provides a workout, yet with more sitting poses than the Intermediate class does.

Master Jonah Chin

Master Chin’s martial arts training goes back over 40 years, having started when he was 5 years old. He has since disciplined himself in one of Korea’s oldest Daoist medicinal lineages for over 25 years. HIs practices include traditional qigong, iaido, kendo and acupuncture. Even his seemingly martial practices ultimately bear the stamp of his dedication to healing and actually self-evolving into a higher level of awareness and wholeness.

“Master” is the closest English translation of a traditional Korean title that means both “teacher” and “exemplar”: one who exemplifies in his life what it is that he teaches.

Sitting meditation – some of the time in silence and some of the time lifting our voices together – enables us to gradually clear the chattering mind and calm the nervous system. By circulating the sounds of “Om mani padme hum” through our system, we massage our internal organs with the vibration of our voices.

Enter the door to this ancient qigong practice, with a 3,000 year plus lineage. The Korean character “kobang” implies ‘ancient’, ‘wise’. Master Chin will present its conceptual basis through a brief explanation of the 7 Dimensions, focussing especially on:

  • 3rd- physical body
  • 4th- time/mind
  • 5th- wisdom

You will also receive an explanation and opportunity to try five or six postures that are basic to Kobang Qigong.

This fairly intense form of qigong serves as a  healing practice. Circulating qi (energy/breath of life) through the body in stationary, standing positions, the purpose is to increase concentration, stamina, bone density and bone marrow production of blood cells. Even in seemingly still positions, this form of qigong produces a perspiring workout. The circulation of qi energizes all the body meridians referred to in classical Oriental medicine.

Master Chin’s martial arts training goes back over 40 years, having started when he was 5 years old.

Even his seemingly martial practices ultimately bear the stamp of his dedication to healing and actually self-evolving into a higher level of awareness and wholeness.

“Master” is the closest English translation of a traditional Korean title that means both “teacher” and “exemplar”: one who exemplifies in his life what it is that he teaches. Master Jonah Chin comes from a thousands of year old Taoist healing tradition from Korea intent on bringing health to the whole human system, physical, mental and emotional. He and his fellow teachers – including Lina Kim Jung Hyun, Ken Hyunwoo Kang and Jesse Cohen – hone their skills in meditation, qigong and swordsmanship in order to sustain a healthy lifestyle, and also to refine their skills as acupuncturists.

The three-fold aspects of the Kobang Taoist Healing Arts practice for students consists of Qigong, Swordsmanship and Meditation. Regular practice of any one of the three significantly enhances health and proficiency. Combining the practices has a multiplier effect in increasing skill level, well-being, and insight. As students attend classes, they begin to organically pick up elements of Taoist philosophy.

Even in seemingly still positions, this form of qigong produces a perspiring workout. The circulation of qi energizes all the body meridians referred to in classical Oriental medicine.

Swordsmanship: The teachers utilize several sword practices to train their speed, reflexes, and cardiovascular conditioning: Kendo (bamboo sword) and Iaido (sheathed sword). Their sword practice also enhances their focus and precision – skills to effectively perform acupuncture. Students are gradually introduced to swords as they progress through their practice. For a more fun-filled approach that still involves discipline, foam Axion swords provide a safe, fast-paced practice that even kids can engage in.

Meditation: Sitting meditation, some in silence and some with the sounding of “Om mane padme hum,” enables practitioners to gradually clear the chattering mind, calming the nervous system.

Acupuncture: In addition to offering classes in the 3 disciplines described above, the Kobang Taoist Healing Arts teachers who are board certified Acupuncturists offer acupuncture to address both occasional and chronic health problems.

Kendo Basics for Health

Kendo translates as “way of the sword” in Japanese. For this class, the intention is to enhance healthy reflexes, coordination and balance. The basic disciplines and moves of Kendo’s bamboo sword, supplemented by the foam sword, can provide an effective cross-training to qigong. The swifter movement and lightness of foot of Kendo counterbalance qigong’s long-held poses. While full development of Kendo results in a martial art or sports-like sparring, health is the goal of this class.

This series requires a minimum 3 month commitment so that students can make real progress in their training.

This series helps you to attain calmness. It builds your endurance through concentrated focus on the qigong postures we are performing. Improving your circulation through qigong is very healthy for your heart.

As you perform the qigong postures, you begin to experience the energy of qi – which is the energy of the universe – flowing through your system. The intention is for you to utilize and reinforce your energy so that this thread of qi can become a steady rope of qi!

This reinforced energy flow is achieved as you concentrate in your physical discipline. Your emotions will calm, your mind will clear, and you will connect with a higher universal energy.

Meditation is the next level of this physical practice. The KoBang Meditation class is therefore recommended as helpful to accompany your qigong practice.

Imagine the power of healing through breath – not just physical healing, but psychological healing as well. Gain more access to your life force energy.

This is the first in a series of workshops in a traditional Korean system of self-healing called KoBang. In addition to teaching you Daoist breathing in this workshop, Master Chin will share the basic yin/yang system of thought. From the principles of Asian medicine, you will learn why the heart (associated with fire) is above the kidney (associated with water), and how that is relevant to your breathing.

You will also practice the first four healing qigong postures, as well as learning the theories behind them.

In addition to these Saturday afternoon workshops, in which you learn both HOW and WHY, Master Chin also teaches weekly classes in KoBang Self-Healing, in which you practice HOW.
