Guest Instructor Wayne Abramson


Wayne is a superbly experienced long-time martial arts adept, one of the very best and tightest of Ben Lo’s original San Francisco inner circle. An annual Summit Seminar favorite, he focuses on adjusting Zheng Style postures and movements for attendees. His work brings tremendous feedback, both from long time ZMQ practitioners (even teachers) down to raw beginners who’d never even done any Tai Chi at all before.

On the Tai Chi side, there aren’t that many super inner circle Ben Lo senior students teaching these days. Yes, there are some, but even of those, very few (counted on fingers of one hand) are at the level of Wayne in terms of duration and intensity of exposure to the full on-site fire of Ben’s unique approach. This isn’t your hippie New York version, this is West Coast ZMQ – uncut mainlined Ben Lo patented.

Wayne is able to mimic or clone the “Ben Lo experience” – that strict and exciting exactitude of principle and structural practice that will fry your thighs, burn your body and brand your mind with the incredibly simple yet almost impossible demands of the Ben Lo 5 Training Principles that leave you feeling soooo good after a session. This is an experience that is rare today and will probably vanish from the world altogether if Ben’s most senior people ever gradually wind down their teaching. But it will be fully on offer at our Seattle event this year.
