    I currently study with Berit Schumann who teaches at the fencing club at the old hat factory in Peekskill; however, she travels a lot and so is not always available to train with, unfortunately. Perhaps, as I would really like to continue training, and frankly, not in the best physical shape. Maybe, I could practice other internal systems, which might prove beneficial. As far as applications are concerned, all of those, I already know (throws, locks, strikes), as that is how I was brought up. My parents were from the Dingle Peninsula in Kerry: It’s all known.

    I see there are two Tai Chi studios next to each other. Are these both your classes. Also, my wife has some knee and back issues, is Tai Chi safe. I was in martial arts as a teenager, 40 years ago though. Thanks

      Tai chi is very therapeutic for an injured body. I only teach privately out of my home in Yorktown Heights New York or via FaceTime online. Looking forward to talking to you in the future
