About the Festival & Masterclass

International Festival (July 1&2 2023)

Masterclass (July 3-7 2023)

Join Master Sam Masich and top teachers from around the world!

A seven-day, all-inclusive event, where you can meet, eat, and train together with taijiquan enthusiasts and experts from around the world! The event will run from Saturday, July 1 to Friday, July 7, 2023 and consists of two main components.

  • July 1-2: the weekend festival where you can explore all things 5 Section with top teachers running mini-workshops. Each day will begin with a 90 minute session presented by Master Sam Masich; there will also be a special Saturday-evening presentation. Following the first session with Sam, there will be 3 other 90 minute sessions, each running 2 threads of content simultaneously with different teachers; there will always be Core Principles options taught in a thread that is suitable for any experience level and those new to 5 Section Taijiquan, as well as a thread suitable for experienced practitioners.

  • July 3-7: the five-day 5 Section Taijiquan Masterclass with Master Sam Masich. Each day we will focus on some of the more challenging aspects of taijiquan using the 5 Section program. While participants are not required to know the curriculum, familiarizing oneself with the material will definitely make these sessions more rewarding

A great opportunity to meet and work with Sam's Indoor Students who will be present at the event.
