Online Class Descriptions
Children’s and Youth Martial Arts
This children’s oriented after school Class is designed to keep your kids moving and active while learning life saving self-defence techniques and strategies. A fun, challenging and entertaining workout for cardio, core strength and flexibility all the while learning valuable upright fighting techniques, self-defence and street proofing skills. I am encouraging participants to find a family member to join them so we can do pad work and partner style drills. Parents and siblings come join in the fun. With the lack of physical activities available for children this year a program like this is even more important for your child’s mental and physical heath.
Chi Kung, Tai Chi and Internal Martial Arts
Do your mind and body a favour and try out this program. Chi Kung and Internal Martial Arts offer so much to students of any age. Watch your balance, coordination and strength increase as your physical and mental stress decreases. There is a reason that so many people around the world participate in Tai Chi and Chi Kung. It works and it works on so many levels. Want to maintain and increase your health and wellbeing? Want to increase your fighting efficiency? Accomplish both and more. Participate in our guided workouts that focus on the Fundamentals and Foundations of effective efficient movement and stress reduction. Keep fit and vital for life!
Keeping fit while social distancing can be a challenge. Don't worry we will motivate you. Get in a good workout and learn upright fighting skills all without having to leave the house. Cardio, core strength, flexibility and more. Modern fighting styles combined with traditional fighting systems allow you to learn striking drills to give you the advantage in your upright game or self defence. Striking skills are taught with a focus on refining and understanding the Bio Mechanical principals that govern efficient and effective martial arts techniques. You will not be disappointed as you improve your strength and flexibility, refine your coordination and see your fighting skills and fitness improve.
My Jong Law Horn Pai, Kung Fu
The earliest written account of the My Jong system comes form the 13th Century. My Jong Law Horn Pai refers to “Lost Track Monk (or Lohan) system”. One of its main features is a sophisticated and surprising ability to change strategy on the fly and do so at very high speed. The opponent simply loses track of what is happening during an encounter. Graceful and highly effective. These classes will focus on the fundamentals and foundations of this diverse fighting system as well as teaching forms (memorized sequences of fighting techniques). Forms offer an excellent challenge both physically and mentally all the while teaching your body how to move fluidly and produce power efficiently. Build your core strength and range of motion while learning effective fighting principals and techniques.
Hsing I Chuan, Kung Fu
Hsing I Chuan (Mind Form Boxing) is considered to be one of the three main styles of internal martial arts from China. Although it does not share the same slowness of motion with Tai Chi Chuan it shares the idea that power is developed from the inside and is expressed outward. Hsing I draws on Chi Kung principals to help increase the health of its practitioners. This supports the development of timing, rhythm, balance and speed. Outwardly Hsing I Chuan can seem sparse, the action takes place on the inside and can lead to truly explosive techniques. In this class we are studying the fundamentals and foundations of the system as well as the 5 fists and 12 animal forms.
Traditional Weapons Study, Double Edge Sword, Staff (Bo), Fighting Fan
Why study historical weapons in a contemporary world? First of all because it is very fun. Weapons training has so many benefits both physical and mental. Learning how to coordinate and become one with the weapon is a rewarding study. In these classes we will be learning the foundations and fundamentals of each weapon as well as learning a traditional form (memorized sequences of fighting techniques) using the weapon. Weapons work is an entertaining way to add some functional weight training to your martial arts and a new challenge to your coordination.
Sword Class will be studying the Moi Fa Gim (Plum Flower Sword) set from Choi Le Fut
Staff Class will be learning the Shepards Staff routine from the My Jong Law Horn Pai System.
Fighting Fan Class will be learning a Chi Li Fut Fan Set
To participate in these classes you will need some form of practice weapon. These can be simple pieces of wooden dowel to start. For the sword class you will need one aprox. 36” you can also use a Kali/Escrima stick. For the staff class you will need a 5’ to 6’ piece. If you are limited with the space you train in you can use something shorter.
"I have really enjoyed the Zoom Tai Chi classes for the past 3 months, learning something new each time. I love being able to go into the archive to redo a lesson that I want to work on."
Linda H., Madoc ON
I like that I can do class without having to get out of my pyjamas on a slow day, or switch out of my sweaty grimies on a day when I've been running dogs all morning first. I like that I can repeat classes when my concentration has failed and at the same time, there are new classes every week, so it feels alive, new and current even when done from recording. I like that when I'm having a crappy day, I can sort of do class anyway, no one is watching! And then my day gets better because guess what - it wasn't such a crappy day after all!
Thank you Greg for persisting in making this work. This program is an excellent example of coping with COVID and I have shared it with many others to inspire and encourage them in developing new ways to continue to reach out and be an effective community of people with knowledge and skill to share for the betterment of us all."

"Given that we can’t practice together I’m finding the zoom classes with Greg to be very worthwhile. I would encourage anyone who is reluctant to give it a try. The instruction is excellent and audio and visual are very clear. Any small technology glitches have been easily solved. Having access to the archived classes is great too!"
Cindy Conner, Peterborough ON
“I’m very happy that Sifu Magwood has posted updated schedules for this Fall. While the online classes don’t provide the benefit of immediate feedback, they still allow me to follow lessons and learn new material, as well as the obvious benefit of receiving a spirited workout (my muscles tell me so!) with each session.
Sifu Magwood’s decision to incorporate the newest technology to allow continual studies has been very beneficial for me. I can attend the virtual classes, and I can also take advantage of the Archives database he has set up, which I use for additional practice – and to catch up after a short holiday.
As he always is in live classes, Sifu Magwood’s martial art skills and knowledge, and his unique gift as a teacher, are clearly evident in our new Zoom sessions."Earl McClare, Tweed ON
