Tai Chi and Self-Defense 

Westfield State University

 Westfield, Mass

 

 

Self-Defense Wednesdays 10/2-10/23/19 6:00pm-7:30pm:   This self-defense workshop series is great for anyone looking to get a taste of martial arts or those who just want to gain a sense of confidence when finding themselves in an uncomfortable situation.  Classes will consist of exercises to loosen up the body and center the mind to prepare for learning before self-defense techniques are presented. The first class will be an eclectic blend of intellectual knowledge and efficient body mechanics that are very much related to everyday movements and daily activities that can be made into self-defense moves. The following classes build upon that simple foundation and expand deeper into techniques and interests requested by participants.

 

Tai Chi Wednesdays 10/30-11/20/19 6:00pm-7:30pm:  Tai Chi is an exercise program that promotes personal development physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Many benefits can be obtained by the practice of Tai Chi including improved flexibility, balance, muscle tone, joint mobility, and mental awareness. Tai Chi is also a great way to release tension and stress and learn self defense skills.  Classes will consist of warm ups, mindful awareness of organizing the body, and mind and form practice, all of which are presented in a non-aggressive, non-competitive environment. Students are encouraged to go at a pace that is comfortable to them.

 

Self-Defense/Tai Chi Package - Wednesdays 10/2-11/20/19 6:00pm-7;30pm:  This series of workshops is a combination of the four-week Self-Defense workshop series and the four-week Tai Chi workshop series offered as a package at a discounted rate.
