Jing Ying Kung Fu & Tai Chi to Celebrate the Chinese New Year

| January 31, 2022, 01:47 PM

The Chinese New Year of the Tiger begins this Monday, February 1. People around the world will ring in the Lunar New Year with celebrations of feasting, family reunions, and other festivities.

The Jing Ying Institute of Kung Fu & Tai Chi will celebrate the Lunar New Year with a series of events that will help all ages be healthy and strong in body, mind, and spirit. Offering Lunar New Year activities has been an important part of Jing Ying’s giving back to their local community for the past 22 years and has included large and festive in-person events. This year we will hold smaller in-person classes at our location in Arnold and virtual events. There’s a bit of something for everyone no matter where they live.

Although traditionally the Lunar New Year is celebrated over the course of 15 days, Jing Ying offers free and low-cost activities the entire month. In keeping with tradition, Jing Ying’s students will clean the school (wushu guan), dust off trophies and sweep the floors, in preparation for the holiday. They will be symbolically cleaning to make room for good luck coming in for the new year. The celebration kicks off this Saturday, January 29 after a student’s final test to her Black Sash. There will be refreshments and Lunar New Year treats. The event is open to the public. Other activities include free tai chi and kung fu classes (in-person and online), an online tea making & tasting class, a Traditions of the Lunar New Year class, Chinese Calligraphy, and more. Pre-registration is required, and more information can be found at www.JingYing.org or by calling 410-431-5200.
