Ben Peterson

Neutral Chaos is proud to host guest artist Ben Peterson for 3 sessions blending martial and stage techniques; the last two Wednesdays in September. 7-9 PM,  September 19th and 26th. 

These workshops will introduce the actor combatant or choreographer to traditional Gung Fu with the aim of integrating eastern fighting methods and martial logic. We will examine traditional training methods, flexibility, mobility, strength and conditioning, relaxation and flow, and practical hand-to-hand combat. Students will gain insight into eastern martial styles as well as an enhanced sense of mobility, dexterity, and freedom of movement in general.

Cost is $30 for each session or $50 for both! Space is limited. Must email mrbenjampinp@gmail.com to reserve your space in class. Cash or Venmo accepted.
