Private, in depth training, is a sure way to improve quickly!
Many students have experienced accelerated progress from private, semi-private and small group sessions with Sam. Lesson topic, format and schedule can be tailored to meet individual needs. The opportunity for real hands on correction and Sam's direct feedback can be invaluable in cultivating higher skill levels.
Private lessons are generally scheduled for an hour but intensive periods of study are also accommodated. Sometimes lessons can be scheduled when Sam is on tour and teaching a seminar in a town near you. Check the Calendar to see where he is when and the availability schedule in the right side bar. Sam divides his teaching time between Europe and Canada.
Private study groups
Groups can also book Sam for closed seminars or guidance sessions. Sam will occasionally travel to teach small, private or small group closed sessions—talk to your study-buddies and put something together!
'I recently booked 20 hours of private lessons with Sam over a 2 week period in order to get detailed instruction on the classical long Yang form. I found Sam to be highly skilled at breaking down the technical aspects of the form in a way that virtually anyone could understand. More importantly, he was also able to clarify aspects of mental focus and martial intent that thread throughout the postures. By going over the form in such detail I now feel that I have a solid foundation upon which to build the rest of my study. The trip to Berlin (from Canada) was well worth the cost and effort.'—Gerry Geisler (Vancouver, Canada)
'One hour with Sam gives me enough to work on for a year!'
