“I began Tai Chi this year with the hope that this could benefit rheumatoid arthritis. Don is a very knowledgeable, patient and enthusiastic teacher. As I begin to learn this art I am amazed at the increase in strength, confidence and calmness I’m having. In the beginning I was skeptical of the benefits, viewing it is slow and boring in comparison to gymnastics, as was my background. I have learned to not underestimate the work out! Tai chi has turned out to be exactly what I needed. It has also provided emotional healing for me. Tai chi is truly an amazing art. I am so thankful I found a New Life Tai Chi!"

"Shifu Don is an excellent teacher! He’s knowledgeable, engaging, and knows how to explain information in an easily digestible manner. New Life Kung Fu is an excellent place to develop your mind and body!"

Nancy Wolnowsky

"Don is a great instructor! I took Tai Chi many years ago in another state but something was missing...the WHY of what I was doing. The art seems to be about slow graceful moves, but Don showed me that it's really a defense practice! His teaching style shows and explains how each move is working against an opponent. What appears to be a gentle sweep of the arms is really slamming your opponent on the ground... practice in slow motion! I love it! I've gained strength, balance, and coordination! It's harder than you think. Give it a try! Thanks, Don!"
