"In the thirty-some years that I have been teaching and practicing Tai Chi Chuan, I have seen many benefit from
its regular practice over time. Improvements in breathing volume and blood oxygen levels, balance, flexibility, and
general increased health and stamina are some of the things that people tell me are the results of their time spent in the
cultivation of the Tai Chi Chuan movements...these are the most rewarding things a teacher can hear, and have kept me endeavoring
to teach this art."

"As a tonic, Tai Chi Chuan can make us physically and mentally
sound. Its slow and gentle movements act to lubricate every part of the body and relax the mind. This ancient
system renders our thinking lucid, turns our temper gentle and brings us peace of mind that helps us to function well in our
hectic world. It enables a person to attain what the ancient Chinese sages called 'the Golden Mean', in
which human desires and frustrations are harnessed and transformed to benefit the individual. "
