What Are the Benefits Of Tai Chi For Health?

Tai Chi was created in ancient China. Today, it is practiced throughout the world as a form of exercise for better health. Many studies have shown that Tai Chi is conducive to more efficient breathing, reduced blood pressure, cardiovascular endurance, increased bone density, increased strength and range of motion in joints, improved flexibility, reduced stress levels, improved immune function and heightened mood states.

Are you afraid of falling? Few if any training methods are better than Tai Chi for improving balance. Scientific studies conducted by Seoul National University in 2001 and the Arthritis Foundation of NSW (University of New South Wales) have shown that this program is quite safe and effective. Thousands of people with arthritis have gained pain relief and better quality of life by learning and practicing every day. Coach Pfeiffer teaches an approved Tai Chi curriculum and you can view his various certifications at (click Instructors/Wisconsin).

What Are the Benefits Of Self Defense?

There is a real need for an effective method of protecting yourself and your family in today's often hostile and violent environment. While crime rates have recently been in decline, crime itself continues to be an ever present concern, because the police cannot protect you during an attack on the street. The best they can do is to attempt to arrest and punish criminals AFTER they have ALREADY victimized you. The ability to defend, protect yourself and your family, is ultimately a personal responsibility. The Kenpo System is logical, practical, and thorough. Armed with knowledge of Kenpo, you will be prepared to deal with a variety of attacks from all angles. The types of attacks Kenpo teaches to defend against fall into these major categories: grabs, pushes, punches, kicks, hugs and holds, locks and chokes, weapons, combinations, and multiple opponents. Kenpo is dedicated to developing each student’s potential, and increasing their proficiency to maximum levels. Hence, improved fitness combined with reduced stress and tension. You will notice an increase in your stamina and enthusiasm for everyday life. Coach Pfeiffer teaches a number of Tai Chi and Self Defense programs including at Lake Geneva YMCA and at the University of Wisconsin, Parkside.

For Adults

People from all walks of life study Kenpo. It can benefit you physically and mentally by improving your levels of fitness, coordination, self-confidence and self-esteem. Persons who compete in today's society will gain increased confidence to cope with any situation. The release of stress and tension are also gained from the consistent study of the art. Additionally, you will notice increased stamina and enthusiasm for life.

For Children

Many parents worry about their children being safe on the street. The well-being of a child can be threatened by adults as well as by other children. Kenpo teaches children to think instead of panic in a threatening or potentially dangerous situation. Kenpo training challenges the entire body. It helps develop balance, agility, poise, and dexterity that often neglected in team sports. Lessons are dynamic and challenging for children who are athletic, energetic, awkward, shy, bold, nice, or maybe a little wild every once in a while...
