Wutan (武壇) Training in Chicago

Postby vietle87 on Thu Jun 04, 2020 2:01 am

Hello!

I will be moving to work at a hospital in Park Ridge, IL and was wondering (when COVID restrictions) are lifted if there was anyone available to meet up informally. I mainly train in the Wutan system (baji, mantis, taiji) and discipled with Shifu Jason Tsou in 2012. I would be open to sharing with anyone in the area.

Hope you guys are doing well!

Yes! I'm a neurologist and got hired to help with their dementia patients. May I ask what you practice?

Ah! I'm out in the western suburbs, so, it doesn't really matter :) Plus, I now have MS, and dealing with that takes up a vast amount my time. There are folks on here that are willing to meet up, though, and some are classmates of mine. Hsing-I, Lama Pai, Paqua, and Liuhopafa. :) Enjoy the proximity to the city :)

I can understand; MS can be very dehabilitating.

I met with sifu jack soderberg in Las Vegas and got a taste of Lama Pai. Certainly if you could recommend anyone in particular I would appreciate it.

Not out PR/Niles/Des Plaines way...... The landscape has changed, and many of the people I'm familiar with have passed, or are retired. I can check with some classmates, and see who is worthwhile, and discount who isn't for you. Give me some time :)

Thank you very much!

Between becoming a new attending physician, I wanted to either share my kung fu or train with others in the area. I don't know many people in Chicago, and I thought it would be a good way to network and make the city feel less lonely.
