Tai Chi, a way of living your life with aplomb*.

*Aplomb ~ Self-Confidence and assurance, especially when in a demanding situation.





I have been asked to teach Tai Chi and Martial Arts at Aplomb Martial Arts in Prairie Village starting around September of 2022. Keeping my mind and body engaged in Tai Chi and Kempo, by taking instructions from the Aplomb Martial Arts instructor classes, weekly every Tuesday evening. Sharing a common goal with other enthusiastic students makes it more enjoyable and I am seeing it paying off in my life as well. Exactly how is yet to be determined. Stay tuned and get out there and move! Text me for more information and join me in the park Sunday mornings.


Being a student of Tai Chi has taught me three valuable lessons about myself. Patience, Discipline and Balance.


  • Patience

  • I thought I was a patient person until I tried Tai Chi. Slow methodical movements requiring stamina and focus helped me find a balanced mind.

  • Discipline

  • I thought I was a disciplined person until I started taking lessons. Because I was paying for my Tai Chi practice I became more disciplined and began practicing when I was working, playing, walking the dog and whenever I had time, outside or inside the dojo.

  • Balance

  • Shifting weight and standing on one leg taught me to use my inner core muscles. Not only did I find my physical balance but Mental balance as well.


I’ve been taking Tai Chi lessons for approximately 5 years and find it so beneficial in all aspects of my life. I encourage young and old to take up this ancient practice and marvelous way of life. Especially if you are stuck in a rut and want something better for yourself and family.
