We are offering introductory mixed classes open to practitioners of all levels and ages. Tai Chi, Qigong, and meditation as well as traditional training for those who are ready and able.
Galina K. – 42 (Tendonitis + Back pain)
I’m really just blown away. I still can’t get over how the pain went away. It really was amazing. It’s the first time in about three weeks that I haven’t been awakened in the morning with excruciating back pain. Also when I started studying with you I had severe tendonitis in my wrists and it’s completely gone now.
June M. – 63 (High blood pressure)
After coming to class for a few months my blood pressure dropped so low that I had to stop taking my high blood pressure medicine!
Shifu Jesse Thundermoon Shadoan began his study of Taiji, Qigong, Neigong and Daoist meditation with Master C.K. Chu in New York City in 1998. Through practice of his teachings, his students have been healed of chronic pain, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, anxiety, depression, weakness and stiffness. He teaches to spread the life changing health and spiritual benefits of these arts.
Jesse was a primary demonstrator on Master Chu’s demonstration team for 10 years, performing all of Master Chu’s forms including Tai Chi Short Form, Long Fast Form, San Shou, Broadsword (dao), Double-edge sword (jian), Flute, and Two Person Flute forms.
He taught hundreds of students Tai Chi & Qigong in New York City at Master Chu’s school, C.K. Chu Tai Chi, and the Tai Chi Chuan Center of New York, and was a founding instructor of the popular Bryant Park Tai Chi program. In 2008 he moved out of the city to Hudson Valley, where he founded his school, Complete Reality Tai Chi with Master Chu’s encouragement. Shifu Thundermoon continued to study for a total of 15 years with Master Chu up until his passing in 2013.
In addition to studying Master Chu’s complete curriculum at the most advanced levels, he also endured many years of hardship training under Master Chu, from extended duration meditations and Horse Stance, as well as grueling form corrections for many years.
In 2016 Jesse began his study of Bagua Zhang in the Cheng style. Bagua Zhang is an internal Chinese martial art in the same family as Taiji. Bagau Zhang is the art of change and represented by walking the circle. Shifu Thundermoon trains the Cheng style Turning Palms, Mother Palms, Linking Palms, Jian (double-edge sword) and Dao (broadsword). Under the guidance of Shifu Li Chunling, a Cheng style 4th generation linage holder, he became the 2022 World Kuo Shu Bagua Weapons Champion with his Cheng style Dao form, as well as the 2022 and 2021 U.S. Kuo Shu Bagua Weapons champion.
