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.

About Ron

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 is an extremely knowledgeable, helpful and patient instructor who teaches true Qigong Tai Chi from China. I have had the best experience learning from Ron. He can break down every movement so that I can easily understand it but also will continually tweak my Qigong to improve my technique, my body flow and my body transformation. I highly recommend Ron if you are hoping to learn the true ancient martial art of Qigong Tai Chi or any of the martial arts that Ron teaches.
John
I am a long time martial arts student and have been extremely pleased to be learning from Master Instructor Ron for the past three and a half years, My training with him began in-person but moved to the online zoom format in March of 2020.

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.
LaDonna
I do NOT like doing things online that I feel should be done in person. However, Ron is that good!!! He shares the perfect amount of information so that I don’t get overwhelmed. This, in turn, relaxes me and I’m able to enjoy the session instead of stressing if I’m doing everything correctly. He is patient, kind and has a great attitude. But beware! He is a rare one and his time slots are going quickly. I am blessed to have found him.

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.

About Teresa

"Jeff is a great teacher who helps you learn the guitar step-by-step with lots of great tips!

I started to learn guitar from Jeff when I was in the 5th grade and I have never regretted it. He has helped me improve so much that I can now solo off of songs and dissect popular songs to learn by myself. It's always so fun to play guitar with him, and he is always encouraging. He also teaches at my home which is really convenient. I always look forward to lessons to show him how I have improved. He is also really funny and entertaining. He has a lot of knowledge on guitar and music in general. Guitar has been a big part of my life and so has Jeff. I owe him all my thanks for teaching me how to enjoy and utilize the guitar beyond just learning chords and progressions."
