Aloha, I am Reinstating Taiji Classes at Keawakapu Beach in Kihei/Wailea on Wednesdays and Fridays at 8-9 AM. I park at the Mana Kai and walk south about 50 yards to where the Kilohana Drive entrance is to the beach. Parking is also available there.  I hope to see you there soon!

Americans Suffer Civil Rights Abuse   Leave a comment

 

Illegal cancelation of Taiji Classes.

Our constitutionally guaranteed rights have been stolen from us.

Our Local government is fining people $5000 for going out, doing taiji, even at the beach, no groups of any kind. This is completely illegal and is a travesty to our nation. Local politicians have stolen these rights from us. For the first time in history this has happened. Our way of life is under assault.

Therefore we cannot do Taiji, even though the best place to be is doing qigong and Taiji. For example: 80% of Wuhan flu transmissions happened to quarantined people. The safest place for people to be is outside in sunlight and fresh air, this is scientific fact. Destroying the rights of citizens and not allowing people to go to work is the worst civil rights abuse since slavery in the history of America.

Taiji Class/Whale Watch Wednesdays and Fridays   2 comments

Wednesday In Kihei at 8AM

This class has been ongoing for about 17 years. Last year I added a Friday class as well. On Wednesday it is an hour and a half and we work on all three sections of the Long Form. On Friday it is a one hour class and we usually focus more on the first and occasionally the second sections and is better for beginners.

It can be distracting with so may whales less that 200 yards off shore of the Maui Surfside’s north lawn! Many folks attend both days.

Lahaina 2020

This class started outdoors in early 2000 on the steps of the old Lahaina civic center. A couple of years later, they built us the West Maui Senior Center on Lahaina Luna Street. Now, each Monday I do three classes here. This is my 9 AM class, they know the first two sections of the Long Form. At 10AM I do a beginner Long Form class and at 11:30 there is a Qigong/neigong class.

From Yang Style Taiji Sword

I now enter my 21st year teaching Taiji. I have had many wonderful experiences and met many amazing people in this time. The best part of it all has been You, my students. Words cannot express my admiration for You. Learning Taiji is one of the most difficult endeavors anyone can undertake, I have always been amazed at the strength of the human spirit. My students have moved me in their commitment to training. One recently told me that she has trained with me for over 14 years, she told me that she started on her 80th birthday! Cathy Hobson, nintey four years young, has come every week and she still does. Another student, Miki Gushi has been with me for 20 years and she too never misses classes and I was with her again today.

This is why I teach; These are just two of my many heros.
