We are one of the longest standing, respected centers in NC. Based in Tai Chi and Martial Arts, Personal Training, plus styles of Meditation and Yoga, you will find caring, certified and experienced instruction.

I started working with Cardiac and Pulmonary Patients in 1988, seeing people recognize and face adversity has been very motiviating for me. It is my pleasure to see you succeed.

    I love the martial arts school so much! Every class is different and challenging mental, physically and make you a better person all around, they really are like a family here, it is not a MC Dojo like a high percentage of martial arts schools are, if you are looking for authentic tai chi and Kung fu please check out this school, Robert Bader

    He teaches so much more than martial arts as many of the lessons apply to lifes myriads of situations. The kwoon is also, under Sifus guidance, full of people who are helpful, thoughtful and interested in helping themselves and their fellow students. It is a wonderful atmosphere for those who want to grow and develop as a human being.
