14+ years in martial arts: Chen Tai Chi

Tai Chi Chuan is a personal favorite of mine which I have devoted over 5 + years of study to, in addition to multiple styles of Kung Fu. If you want to learn the original form of Tai Chi direct from Chen Village (in a traditional manner) then you have found your instructor.

About Daniel
In addition to teaching music, I have also worked as a special education assistant and wrestling/track coach at Lake Zurich Middle School South and an assistant Kung Fu/Tai Chi instructor at Green Mountain Arts in Logan Square, Chicago, Illinois. Jazz piano, Voice, and Composition are my main areas of expertise. However, I have also been recording, and playing guitar almost my entire life. I fully believe in music education not only for entertainment and personal enjoyment, but for many other means.
Beyond its capacity for being used as entertainment, music aids in learning, helps develop advanced motor skills, increases memory function, and many other purposes for a well rounded education. It is my goal to help educate the next generation in traditional music practices as well as incorporate new techniques that are relevant to our
current day and age.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lesson plans vary from person to person. I always make it a point to get to know the student's existing musical knowledge, goals, and background before I create a personalized lesson plan. All important concepts are covered as they are needed so students can understand theoretical concepts based upon actual application and usage. In short, I teach in a way that students can "dig in" right away and play, create, improvise, sing and/or compose freely and naturally. I always encourage students or parents to contact me with their goals, previous musical training, etc., and discuss what they really want out of lessons so they can get the most out of taking me on as an instructor.

Daniel cancelled my son's first lesson with less than a one hour notice. He attended the second lesson, but again cancelled the third lesson with a 30 minute notice. He sent me a text message to notify me and I called him back and left a voicemail. 24 hours later and I still haven't gotten a call back. I want my money back. He has wasted my son's time. Poor professionalism.

Daniel adapted throughout the course of the hour-long lesson to understand what I already knew and find appropriate ways to fill in the gaps of my knowledge. He also started me on the process of learning a new approach when looking at and learning to play new music pieces.

Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese practice and is sometimes referred to as a moving meditation. It can help with high blood pressure, and is a great way to practice relaxation techniques. Tai Chi helps improve balance and flexibility.

I have been teaching Tai Chi in the Taoist Tai Chi style since 2009, certified in set leading and beginner instruction.

I can teach you two Taoist sequences - the 18 movement as well as the 108 moves. I usually recommend new students learn the 18 moves first, get this memorized and then move into the 108 moves.

About Cindy

Your Tai Chi Journey begins with an understanding of your needs. There is no mystery or mysterious movements to Tai Chi Chuan. The lessons are science-based so you will enjoy learning this wonderful art which has changed my life and I'm sure it will change yours too. Once we've set some goals we'll begin with introductory training. Experienced or maybe not so much we will work together to help you reach your goals.

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.

ense in Burlington Wisconsin regularly.

There are ongoing classes at the Kenosha Moose Lodge (Yang 24, Yang 32 Sword, TCBP, TCK,TCO, TCR, TCA Part 2 and Seated, TCE) and a Saturday morning TCA class at the Kenosha Senior Center.

I have been training with Ron for a little over a year now and want to leave an update to help guide others looking for a phenomenal instructor. Working with Ron has been pleasant, exciting, and encouraging. I take weekly lessons with him learning Chen 18 Forms while refining the Yang 24 Forms and Ron does a tremendous job blending new instruction with refinement. He intuitively knows how much time to spend on each based on how I'm dong and what form or posture we are working on. I think I mentioned it in my first review but Ron's constant reminder of the fact that my Tai Chi is right for where I am in my learning is refreshing and helpful. If you are interested in learning more about Tai Chi Ron is an excellent choice and I highly recommend him.

For benefit of others, I wanted to write a quick update review. I have been studying with Ron online for several months now and can say that it has been--and continues to be--a joy. I try many things and have many curiosities. Tai Chi was one of them, but under Ron's guidance, my curiosity has deepened substantially. His teaching style is warm, kind, guiding, and filled with depth and wisdom. This combination signifies to me a true master, and I highly recommend anyone interested in Tai Chi to seek his guidance.!

Steve really tailored the class to my needs. He throws in wit, humor and insight in his lessons. The fitness regimen he taught me is something that I can do everyday with relatively modest effort and time commitment. I am already seeing the benefits of practicing what he has taught me. I highly recommend his classes.

Steve contacted me before my first lesson to discuss what I expected from the session. I had only scheduled one lesson and wanted to try it out for myself and because I am enrolled in a graduate study program; I needed to try an alternative healing session so I could complete an assignment. I loved that Steve explained the movements and how they affected the internal body, mind, and spirit. He is a wealth of information and I plan on continuing to learn from him.

I haven't even taken the lesson yet, but am struck by his professionalism in reaching out to me by phone to discuss my knowledge and expectations of Qigong. You know the feeling you get when you talk to someone about a subject and you have an inclination about their depth of knowledge of it? No doubt, Steve knows exactly what he is talking about and with his extensive experience and personality, is a teacher that really wants to explain things in a way you really comprehend.
