Because of the ongoing nature of our regular training sessions, new students must begin their training at the Center with a series of four orientation sessions. This introduces the student to the basic concepts we employ in our teaching and in how we conduct classes as well as introducing them to the art they have chosen.
At the end of the four orientation sessions the student is prepared to join regular training sessions, to profit fully from them with out disrupting other students class time.
If you are interested in our training, either in a single art or as a full member, please contact us to schedule a visit to the Center. You can observe a class in session, discuss our programs with an instructor and schedule your orientation sessions.
Contact us to discuss about prices and organisation.
Single Art Membership
This level is for people who are taking classes in one art, coming to the center two or three times a week for classes. There is no real commitment at this level however the student is expected to practice and to keep up with the training to the best of their abilities.
*NATSTA membership is required.
When someone begins to truly love these arts and to desire to learn as much as possible, to feel respect and gratitude to our ancestors in gongfu for having passed these arts down to us and to have a sense of desiring to part of the chain of transmission it is appropriate to make a firmer commitment both to their own practice and to the health and well fare of the community within which the arts are available. This is the meaning of this level of membership.
This membership level gives access to all regular classes, including regular Qigong and Neigong, but excluding special seminars and events, and fixed-length courses like Jingluo Qigong.
*NATSTA membership is required.
NATSTA (North American Tang Shou Tao) membership
$100/year (annual fee)
At the Montreal Gongfu Research Center, we are part of a gongfu family. The practice and cultivation of gongfu that is available here in Montreal is only possible because we are part of a larger community spread out across the globe. We are guided by Vince Black and by our teachers living in China, and we benefit regularly from interactions with other schools practicing the same method as we do. Because of this, joining the North American Tang Shou Tao Association is required of anyone wishing to study at the Center (the exception being the morning Qigong classes which are offered as a community service), in order to support the work of the Association in making these arts available to us.
NATSTA members receive a biannual newsletter, are welcome to attend events such as the annual national conference in the United States and regional seminars, as well as being eligible to attend special events such as trips to train in China. You also get a t-shirt.
