Ta​i Chi Therapy

The Story 


  Wills' Tai Chi training began on Okinawa in 1985 but wouldn’t resume until 2008 when he met John Ruberto, a Tai Chi Chuan & Qigong master and Doctor of Naprapathic medicine.  John introduced Will to ' the healing elements ' of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and six years later inducted him into The United States Martial Artist Association Hall of Fame for "Special Contributions to the Martial Arts"; that 'special contribution' John later shared was ' Wills' passion for sharing meaningfully, the Spirit of Tai Chi with others. ' Before passing away, John recommended Will study "The Harvard Medical School Guide to Tai Chi." Will was so moved by the book, he attended four workshops hosted by the author, Peter Wayne, at his "Tree of Life"  Tai Chi studio in Boston. This training firmly established the value of TCM practices and helped inspire Will's first community Tai Chi classes presented at Shape Corporation, Grand Haven, MI in November of 2015!

 

  Though there are now many ways to become a 'certified' Tai Chi teacher, it takes decades to develop proficiency and an effective teaching style. This, and the fact there is no recognized international Tai Chi teaching credentialing panel, suggests students should do their due diligence when selecting a Sifu to invest their time, energy and resources in? 

  To help further establish his credibility, Will  obtained a National Certification as a Personal Trainer with  The National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) in addition to the recognition his teacher bestowed upon him for the gift of sharing his knowledge with others. 

 

 Will enjoys all aspects of teaching but said perhaps the most rewarding is becoming aware of the changed mood on the faces of his students, tension gives way to smiles and likeminded people talk . . . there's a undeniable ' power that's takes place, like the current created when a group of people agree to circle a pool creating a current to ride upon . . . contagious!  If any of this sounds intriguing to you, perhaps you’re one of us too . . . why not come see!


Peace,

Sifu
