Martial Arts
    I began studying martial arts in 1980. I received a third degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do. Having already begun to branch out and explore other movement styles I trained in several other combative arts. I have studied Aikido, Arnis, Silat, Tai Chi, Bagua and Chi Kung as well as a smattering of other styles. I have Qigong Intensive Workshop 10-03-09 037taught children and adults of all ability levels for the last 15 years. Martial arts have been and continue to be a powerful tool of transformation for me, one which I love to share with others. I am currently studying chi kung and bagua with my teacher in Denver.  I teach Bagua (Pakua), Chi Kung (Qigong) and Tai Chi (Taiji) classes and workshops.
