Kung Fu & Tai Chi
Nancy and Billy Greer met in 1978 while attending neighboring colleges.
Nancy was a social work major and Billy was biology/pre-med. They
married in 1982 and have been full partners in each others lives ever
since and have worked together almost continuously. They have
exemplified the concept of Yin and Yang, bringing together skills and
ideas that complemented each other and enabled them to do more
than either might accomplish on their own. They are both passionate
about what they do, which is easy to see if you spend a few minutes
talking to them!
Glen began taking PE classes at Jing Ying in the Fall of 2001. In the summer of 2003, he started the Kung Fu program. He likes to push himself to test the limits of his abilities and has seen big improvements in strength and flexibility. He's known for his sparse, efficient fighting style and powerful thrust kicks.
In the past, he ran our Kids Kung Fu classes and family classes. Although no longer actively teaching, he can still be found working out and helping out at Jing Ying as needed.
In his spare time, he enjoys reading, listening to music, weightlifting and watching movies.
Lane began taking PE classes at Jing Ying in the Fall of 2001. In the summer of 2003, she started the Kung Fu program. In 2004, she also started studying Tai Chi and finds that it is a wonderful complement to the Shaolin Kung Fu training. In July of 2008, she earned her Black Sash in Kung Fu.
She quickly fell in love with the physical and mental challenges of learning Kung Fu. When she started, it seemed like it would be hard to find time to train twice a week, but now she says it's hard to go for a day without Kung Fu!
Lane taught our Kung Fu Kids program, and organized and helped run the Demo Team. She finds that instructing others helps her gain a deeper understanding of the forms.
She is Jing Ying's most prolific medal winner with a national championship in advanced level sparring and in advanced level tai chi forms. She has won numerous other gold medals for sparring, forms, weapons and tai chi and is known for her flexibility. She has trained with Willy Lin, Chen ZhengLei, Chen XiaoWang, Wang HaiJun and others.
She has her BSN and works as an ER nurse.
