Chen Tai Chi for Kids
Mind Body Synergy Institute founder Jose Figueroa literally wrote the book on this program after a decade of testing and teaching in New York City public schools. The classes present an innovative and fun approach to Chen Taiji, emphasizing nonviolent conflict resolution, stress management, health and wellness, while still giving kids that authentic kung fu kick they love. This creative, entertaining program increases fitness, strength, flexibility and focus and is extremely effective cross-training for other sports. The physical awareness and techniques learned through tai chi can help to prevent injuries in student-athletes, as well.
