Tai Chi & Self-Defense Parties

Category: Health / Fitness
Tai chi and/or self-defense parties are friendly and fun ways to learn about these arts while enjoying a great social event with your friends and family.

Everyone gets it fast! My energetic approach will have you either doing tai chi or defending yourself in just a couple of fun filled hours.

Events start with a gentle warm-up and move right into the heart of learning and actually doing the gentle art of tai chi (moving meditation) or defending yourself and becoming more confident that ever before.

Parties are 2 hours with fun socializing afterwards. These events are a wonderful way to prepare your kids for college and can also be great for bringing your family and friends together for an exciting time.

Tai chi or self-defense parties are also great for networking events!
