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

Lillian
Takes time to explain. Not only the lesson but also the why. Background info as well. I had a very nice and interesting first Tai Chi lesson. Definitely think Ron can help me very good to become a good Tai Chi student.
Chris
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.

Do you love to draw? I do, too!! I've taught Art (Drawing and Painting) for over 20 years! I will help you achieve this. We all start out as young children drawing things, then over time, we get self-conscious and judgmental about our ability to draw. No matter your age, I can help you make beautiful pieces of art. I've taught students from age 5 to adult with great success, and I look forward to having the opportunity to teach you!

About Margie

Hello! I'm Miss Margie. I've been teaching art in school classrooms, privately at my home or students' homes, and online for over 20 years. I'm blessed with the skill of drawing. I can draw anything, and I'm really good at showing my students how to draw. Skilled drawing and drafting is the foun

Margie is a phenomenal art instructor and artist – I highly recommend her classes to art learners of all ages! Whether you are interested in improving and practicing new art skills or looking for a fun art activity for your kids or with friends, Margie’s art classes are right for you! Margie gives excellent step-by-step instruction to create a wide variety of art subjects and styles, and can teach any art medium (watercolor paint, colored pencil, acrylic, etc.) in virtual and in-person settings. During lessons, Margie is great at giving individual feedback to each student in both group and individual sessions and encourages her students to explore and express their own creativity while they create – you will have a lot of fun and feel proud of the art you make in Margie’s classes. I took several of Margie’s art lessons with a group of friends (adult age group) and we learned to create a wide variety of subjects (nature, floral, animal, & human subjects) and learned to use several different mediums including watercolor, colored pencil, oil pastels, pencil & marker – I learned something new with every image/medium, love the art we got to create, and had the best time!
Stacy
Margie is a complete pro. She handles all skill levels with encouragement and support, but also offers constructive and helpful pointers to actually improve skills. She is kind, talented, and makes me look forward to art projects!
Stephen
Our experience with Miss Margie teaching our daughter Art Classes has been life-changing for our daughter. Ms. Margie's attention to detail and understanding of the foundation skills needed to be an artist could not be more competent.

Our daughter is becoming a fantastic artist and is getting attention in middle school from the local magnet high schools due to her ability to create art based on the foundation skills that Ms. Margie has given her.

I don't think you could find any better teacher in the United States than Ms. Margie. Through these art lessons our daughter has gained a confidence in herself, the ability to create beautiful works of art, and a deep understanding of the foundation skills required in art.

We have been with Ms. Margie for three years and do not intend to stop lessons anytime soon. There is no doubt in my mind that Ms. Margie is the right teacher for your child. Ms. Margie is not only a great art teacher but a fabulous person which is rare in the teacher these days.

You will definitely be getting more than your money's worth from Ms. Margie. No one cares more than Ms. Margie about providing a great education in art. You will not be disappointed.

Hi! I love teaching music because I believe music is an essential part of us that should be available for everyone. I base my curriculum heavily on what the student is interested in learning. Of course we will go over the fundamentals, we will practice ear training, and learn basic music theory, but the music we learn will be totally up to you and what makes you tick.

About Marwan

I am a guitarist, bassist, songwriter, and composer based out of Los Angeles, CA. I have earned my bachelor's degree in Guitar performance, and I regularly play many styles including funk, RnB, Jazz, Pop, Rock, and Hip Hop. I am also the curator of a weekly music and art show called Apiary, where

Matt
It is hard to describe the level of joy and enthusiasm my lesson with Justin brought me. Justin was respectful, patient, and incredibly helpful with my playing. My experience with Justin has inspired me to pursue music with a much more serious attitude. He helped me identify my strengths and weaknesses, and now I feel like I'm truly making progress. No other lesson I've ever taken has inspired and benefited me as much as this one.
Nate
Very good teacher he didn't have any problems answering my questions. Good experience and I learned a lot.
Mark
Justin is a very structured and reliable teacher. He teaches scales, chords, and arpeggios to students of all ages as well as many different styles; jazz, classical, and rock. He can transcribe music from ear having perfect pitch and teaches music theory. I’ve been teaching music for 25 years and I know the difference between bad teachers and good teachers. Justin is a great teacher who goes above and beyond expectations.

Alex is an awesome teacher, very knowledgeable and focused on details. He goes at the perfect pace so I don't feel overwhelmed. I've browsed YouTube for Ableton lessons, and it feels chaotic to learn this way. Ableton can be intimidating, but Alex organizes the information and presents the information is a digestible way. Our lessons cover the perfect amount of information.

Chess Rules: a Step-by-Step Guide for Beginners

I will admit to you, the reader, that most of the articles I have written thus far assume that the reader is already a fairly avid chess player, who is aware of the basic rules of chess and thus is interested in learning more advanced strategies, traps, and tricks with the goal of decisively defeating the opponent. But, of course, not everybody is born knowing the rules of chess---there are, in fact, many out there who are unfamiliar with the game, and need an introduction. Especially now …

Sewing at Home: 3 Easy Sewing Projects for Children

The energy that my first time sewing students bring to the very first class is wonderful. They are so excited about the creative possibilities that learning to sew will bring them. Often this excitement is tempered by the fear of using a sewing machine. I start by encouraging them to do some easy sewing projects for children, so they can get comfortable with using a sewing machine. It is also a great way to learn some very basic sewing skills. The following projects are quite simple, quick and u …
