Follow Rt. 2 south to where it intersects Rt. 50. Take the left lane (50 East/450 South) to 450 South/Naval Academy. Just before you get to the Naval Academy bridge over the Severn River there is a stop light.

Take a left at the light there, onto B&A Blvd (again, I did mention B&A meanders a bit, didn’t I?).

At the next light, turn right onto Kincaid. Watch the speed limit very closely from here on out! It’s 25 mph here. You’ll pass the Navy Exchange/Commissary complex on your right, then a gas station (great prices, but you have to have a military id), and then the guard shack. (At this point it is not manned, but if something happens to escalate the threat condition we’ll need to submit names and license plate numbers for all the vehicles that are joining the party. In that case, email me or let me know at the testing.)

Take the first left (Alder Road), into the housing area, and drop your speed to 10 mph.

Pass the youth center and the park.

Turn right (Holly Road, but not marked) before the baseball field, and start looking for a parking space. The pool is straight ahead, at the intersection of Holly and Eucalyptus. 

There is a playground and picnic tables just across the "street", if people want to come early.

Master Zhu will explain in his familiar direct show-and-tell approach the training of Fajin. He will teach the seldom-presented 42-movement Fajin set. This is the 36-movement set that Chen Zhao-kui (Chen Fa-ke's son) taught him, with 6 movements added. Although the topic may sound advanced, beginners will also benefit, as understanding the discipline required of Fajin training will give you clear insight of how and what to practice in your regular form routines. So the workshop is invaluable to deepen your knowledge of Taijiquan.
