Belt testing

 Students in the Adult Karate Program should make an instructor aware when they feel they are ready to test.  The student and instructor can then determine if the student is ready or if more work is needed before the test. 

Belt tests are performed on scheduled Saturdays with a small group of students.  While famillies are welcome to watch any class, belt tests are a great time for family or friends to watch the student perform what they have learned.

Tai Chi Classes

Philosophy of Tai Chi

  "The mind should come first, the body later.  The body should follow the mind as a shoadow follows an object.  All movements are directed by the mind, not by exerting muscular strength."   Tai Chi is a martial art form with practical applications, but is foremost practiced as a meditative exercise for the body.  In Chinese philpsophy, the concept of 'chi', a vital force that animates the body, drives the pattern of movement associated with this art.  For more information about Tai Chi, click here.
