Sunday Feb 11: Lunar New Year Luncheon for Students (Very Limited Space)
February 10 marks the start of the new Lunar Year. We will be celebrating the Dragon year. We are excited to bring back our tradition of having a Lunar New Year luncheon for our students at China Pavilion in Orange, CT. We love China Pavilion because they not only serve delicious Chinese food, they also have the most extensive vegan options that are just as tasty as the traditional versions. This year, space is extremely limited at the restaurant so please RSVP you spot as soon as possible if you would like to attend.

What: Aiping Tai Chi Lunar New Year Luncheon
When: Sunday February 11, 12PM - 2PM
Price: $25 per person to be paid at the venue
Sunday Feb 18: Push Hands Meet Up
Last winter we had a blast hosting a Push Hands meet up so we're doing it again this year! We're invited martial arts practitioners and enthusiasts of all disciplines to join us to exchange skills and knowledge and have fun and play! Sword sparring will be allowed but only with wooden swords.

Event is free but we are asking for a $5 - $10 entrance fee donation to help cover heating costs for the event. Registration is recommended but not required to attend.
Watch recording from last year's livestream of our push hands meet up event that was a fundraiser for fellow Tai chi instructor Stephen Watson:
