Class Schedule

Please arrive ten minutes before your scheduled class. This page has our standard class schedule. If you are looking for our calendar of class cancellations, changes, seminars and other special activities, see our Calendar - Events page. If you want to see descriptions of the different programs listed, go to our Programs page. Click here for our inclement weather policy.

Visitors are welcome to observe any class at any time. You don't need to contact us in advance and can just stop by, but we recommend that you check with us to ensure there haven't been any schedule changes. Also, we highly recommend that if you plan to take the time to visit us, you should try a class rather than just watch.

We offer a free introductory class for new students and we find that you will get a better understanding of our program if you participate in a class rather than just watch. To take advantage of our free trial, please call in advance so we can schedule your lesson. We have a variety of programs available for children and adults.

Private lessons can be scheduled with any of the instructors and are available at times mutually convenient for the instructor and student.

Please note that TaijiQuan is the pinyin spelling for what is often seen as Tai Ji Quan, Tai Chi Chuan, T'ai Chi Ch'uan, or commonly shortened to just Tai Chi in the US. The pinyin system is the official system adopted by China and the UN for transliterating Chinese characters into the English alphabet. Because other methods of spelling were in use earlier, we see many examples of varied spelling such as Peking is now Beijing, Kung Fu is now Gongfu, or Ch'i Kung is now Qigong.

The All Levels intensive classes on Tuesdays and Saturdays are open to adult students of all levels and are highly recommended for advanced students, especially as a substitute for missed Monday or Wednesday advanced classes. These classes are not open for family training.

*Help us begin classes on time. Please arrive ten minutes before your scheduled class to change, review and work out.

* Please note that you are encouraged to train in a lower belt level class at any time.

Pre-testing is usually on the first Monday of each month at 6:30 pm with a make-up pre-test at 6:30 pm on Tuesday of the following week. When the 1st of the month is a Tuesday, the order will be reversed.

Testing is usually held on the last Saturday of each month at 11:00 am. Students who are testing should arrive no later than 10:30. There is a potluck celebration for after the test so please bring a dish to share!

 

Inclement Weather Policy

Please note that we do not necessarily follow the county public school closing policy. The conditions during the early morning that lead the public schools to decide to close or stay open may be very different by the afternoon when most of our classes start. A better guideline is Anne Arundel Community College. If they cancel evening classes, Jing Ying will generally cancel classes as well. We will always decide on closings at least an hour before the start of a class. You can sign up to get automated text message announcements from Anne Arundel Community College by going to www.aacc.edu/stayinformed or get announcements directly from Jing Ying by following us on Twitter

Check the weather reports. Here are our normal procedure for various weather conditions:

Winter Storm Warning or Winter Snow Emergency - if in effect during the time of our regularly scheduled classes, we will cancel those classes. When the National Weather Service issues a winter storm warning or snow emergency, they recommend that you stay indoors and not travel. If you must travel, they suggest that you use public transportation as 70% of winter deaths related to snow and ice occur in automobiles.

Winter Weather Advisory - snow, freezing rain or sleet may present a hazard, but it is not considered significant enough to issue a warning. Conditions should be safe if reasonable precautions are observed. Classes will usually be at regular times but may be cancelled depending on conditions near Jing Ying.

Winter Storm Watch - Potential for heavy snow or ice in 24 to 36 hours. This means you should start checking weather reports regularly as a storm is predicted for the next day, but conditions may change. We will follow our regular schedule.

When there is little uncertainty about the upcoming weather conditions during our class schedule, we may be able to make a decision early and let you know the previous day. Unfortunately, there often may be constantly changing predictions about snow or icy conditions and when the weather will occur. When that is the case, we will wait as late as possible to make a decision. However, if classes will be cancelled for the day because of the weather, we will always decide at least by 3:00 pm and we will change the outgoing message on our answering machine to announce the closing. If we only cancel some classes, the announcement will be changed at least an hour before the start of those classes. In addition, we will post closings to our e-mail list, Twitter, or Facebook.

Bottom line, if conditions in your neighborhood don’t seem safe - stay home. If your neighborhood is fine, but you are unsure about other areas, call us at 410-431-5200 and you should be able to find out about any class cancellations an hour before the class starts. If you call less than an hour before the start of your class and there is no announcement of cancellations on the answering machine, then you can assume class will be held.
