Coming January 2013 to Arlington, Virginia

Hello, all. I am pleased to announce that I will begin teaching both a Tai Chi and Qi Gong class and classes in Kung Fu at the Arlington, Virginia branch of the YMCA, located in the Clarendon section of Arlington. The Tai Chi class will be held on Monday mornings at 11:00am. The Kung Fu classes will be held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:00pm – 7:30pm and Saturday morning from 10:00am – 11:30am. I have not taught a class since 20 Sept. at the Wickham Park Senior Center in Melbourne, Florida. How both ironic and fitting that the very first  class I taught in Florida would be, 3 1/2 years later, the last class I taught in Florida. I miss that group as I miss all my students from Florida. I have taken advantage of the time off from teaching to work on getting the business established in the Greater Washington, D.C. area. I have to admit that with being here, one of the best things has been my own training. While in Florida, I did my personal training at my school. Here, I have no brick and mortar building – I am freelancing. I found a park not far from my new home, a lovely wooded place – I even shared some time with a young spiker buck who came wandering through one morning a week ago. It is here in this setting that I engage in my QiGong and perform my  ” TaoLu ” ( Mandarin term for forms ). I go there in the morning after doing a good physical routine at home and perform what I call ” The World According to Everything “; that is, everything I know. It has been very nice to re-connect with nature and be breathing cold air again, feeling the dead leaves crunch beneath my feet as they move along the uneven ground. Such a pleasant change from being indoors running forms on the mat surrounded by four walls. It has been good, and will continue to be. I will be teaching at the YMCA, yes, and some other health club facilities as well, but I am committed to engaging in my own workout outside, year round. I am also looking for some hardy souls that are willing to join me so that I can resurrect the hard core class I taught while in Rhode Island. So, steps are being taken forward. I will keep you updated as I begin this new chapter in my journey across time as a ShiFu. Peace and good days always to all.
