My Dear Doctor Friend Aihan, You probably don't know, and I'm not sure I can tell you, how much you have helped me this past year. You have helped me grow healthier in every way--socially, emotionally, and physically. Only a wise, courageous, and skillful person, that you are, could set me on that path. - Mary Beth
Tai Chi is a wonderful (and to me necessary) part of external martial arts in which I am also involved – it truly rounds out my martial arts training, studies, and involvement. Dr. Kuhn is a traditional Chinese physician and healer, and leverages the benefits of tai chi and qigong accordingly. Having extensive experience and training as a physician, she understands how tai chi really works and applies it – and integrates that knowledge into her instructor training. I feel quite fortunate to have such an experienced teacher/Tai Chi Master from whom to learn. - Shawn A. Armacost
