Chen Style Tai Chi Chuan & Qi Gong from Hanfei International Taiji Health and Fitness Centre
Our Defensive Arts curriculum takes the beginner all the way through the basic techniques of self-defense into more advanced training including knives, sticks and guns.
To begin with let me say I am a martial arts instructor. I'm not a Yoga person, music teacher, actor or some other part timer and all of my reviews are from actual students who have taken classes with me in the martial arts and in various disciplines. American Tai Chi and Qi Gong Association Cer
Ron's expertise continues to shine through in the online format as much as it did in live training. I currently participate in a group class, periodic special training seminars, and a weekly private lesson. His depth of knowledge and attention to details regarding what students are learning is first rate.
I previously studied with several other Tai Chi Chuan instructors, and I can say without reservation that Ron's teaching is far and above the quality of training I received before.
Ron's teaching style is gentle and meets the student at whatever level they are at. However, he will challenge you to go beyond what you may think you can do but within the limits of reason. He is always focused on safety first in your training.
If you are seeking an honest, caring, and professional Tai Chi instructor, you will be hard pressed to find anyone better suited to helping you achieve a greater level of expertise and deeper understanding of the art than Master Ron.

Piano is the general instruction of the instrument. I have taught lessons for over 23 years where I have been traveling to the homes.
The students learn not only the general concepts but they also learn Theory which is the understanding of what lies underneath the music itself.
I have an easy going personality with the students learning how to play the piano, but I also want the students to work to their full potential.
The students learn not only the basics of the piano itself, but they also play fun songs, such as popular songs that they know.
I am a graduate of Northern IL University with a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education. I have 22 years of teaching experience where I have traveled to the homes. Students enjoy my passion that I have with the instrument. I started teaching in 1991 and have been teaching several students since t

Soon, you will have the skills to book a role. I specialize in method acting, but draw upon my experience at The Second City (improvisation) in Chicago and other training I have had. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels; I can't wait to meet you!
