Experimental College offers martial arts classes

By From page A4 | April 16, 2013

Enrollment is underway for ongoing internal martial arts classes at the UC Davis Experimental College. Instructor Daniel Pfister has spent more than 20 years practicing and teaching martial arts, including time spent in China and Taiwan.

Internal martial arts are styles of Chinese kung fu that emphasize meditative and breathing exercises to help develop a strong, flexible body, aware and responsive to the moves of an opponent. Some internal martial arts, like taijiquan (tai chi), are practiced slow and relaxed; others, such as xingyi and bagua, are practiced faster and with more explosive movements.
