One Key Yoga is hosting a self-defense workshop for women over four consecutive Sundays in October. This class is designed specifically for women who want practical and effective self-defense skills. We start with how to avoid conflict and then move to self-defense techniques to help you get out of trouble. We will train in a safe environment, but realistic scenarios will be presented. Students should expect to be challenged!
• Classes will be held on October 8, 15, 22, 29 from 5:30-7:00 pm.
• The address is 4845 N. Damen (a block north of Lawrence).
• The course fee is $80 for the four sessions.
• Please wear comfortable clothing and “inside only” gym shoes.
• All classes will be taught by experienced martial arts instructors Tim Chapman and Chuck Westcott from Elmhurst Martial Arts.
• Note: In order to get the full benefit of the training, students must attend all four sessions.

At the request of some tai chi students I’m putting together some reference videos and posting them to YouTube. The first video is the Flowing Dragon Fan form. Both front and back views are up on the ChicagoTimChapman YouTube channel. More videos to come!
Beginning on June 1st, tai chi classes at Chang’s Academy in Elmhurst will be held Monday and Wednesday mornings at 9 am. May 26th will be our last evening class. Current Chang’s students who are able to transition to the morning class can attend free during the months of June and July.
For directions and pricing contact the school at 630-903-6064.
The new year is a time when people take stock of their routines. They make (and break) resolutions, many of them having to do with diet and exercise. Come to tai chi class. Flowing Dragon Tai Chi. If tai chi class isn’t an option for you, find another way to stretch and strengthen your muscles and joints. Swimming is a good low impact exercise, and (if you have the right partner) so is dancing. Go outside. Walk. Hug a tree. Hug a person. Whatever you do, I wish you health and happiness in 2016.
Walking along the lakefront on a nice fall day, I saw the TSNY Chicago school at Belmont Harbor and couldn’t resist. Thanks to excellent instruction from Birgit, Annie and Jason, I managed to eke out a back flip and a catch and release (yeah, like a fish) at the first class. High-flyin’ fun!
Beginning January 6th I will begin teaching tai chi chuan classes at Chang’s Martial Arts, 681 N. York Rd., Elmhurst, IL 60126. We will meet Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 8 pm. Tuition is $80 per month, but for those who can’t make class twice a week there is a per class option.
