Ip Sun Tai Chi practitioners meet from 9-10:30 a.m. every Saturday at Bull Creek Park, 6701 Lakewood Drive to practice their form of moving meditation. Meet in the small parking lot on the east side of the park.

Instructors will lead the group in the ancient healing practices of Tai Chi and Qi Gong. The meeting is free and open to the public.

Ip Sun, a Tai Chi training program in the Tukong Moosul system, is an internal martial art developed by Buddhist monks living at the Dae-yeon Sa Temple located in the Korean mountains, according to a press release. Practitioners say it develops self-awareness, confidence and inner strength while improving balance, coordination, concentration and self-defense.
