Does any of this
Sitting at work takes up the majority of your day, and you feel the need to do something about it.
Typical forms of exercise don’t really work for you. They’re too demanding or painful, and they tire you out just thinking about them.
Nagging joint issues make simple activities like walking around a chore.
Aging is an unavoidable aspect of life
Tai Chi is a low impact, easy-to-start form of exercise that’s perfect for men and women of all ages, shapes, and sizes. Don’t be fooled by thinking this is your typical martial arts practice. Tai Chi classes are less about self-defense, fighting, and intensity, and more about health, inner peace, and tranquility.
The flowing motions of Tai Chi will invigorate your mind and body, waging war on the years of stress and tension you’ve allowed to build up.
Feel the stress and tension melt away
Stress and anxiety can actually turn your life upside down. It can take years to fully recover from a major incident. I think it takes most people a lot longer – maybe even a lifetime.You don’t want this to happen to you. Getting ahead of your stress means slowing down and doing something to counteract years of mounting troubles.The aches, pains, and tension you feel are your body’s way of crying out for help. It’s desperate for a break and some tender, loving care.

Almost sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? Well it isn’t. And that’s the wonderful power of Tai Chi classes.
The Feel of a Yoga Practice
Just because Tai Chi is low-impact, doesn’t mean it’s for wimps or sissies. Tai Chi offers the allure of a martial arts class, but with the feel of a yoga practice. In simpler terms, be a badass while healing your body.
Many beginner and expert students love the peace and relaxation of the flowing Tai Chi movements. Others love and appreciate the martial arts side of Tai Chi, more commonly known as “push-hands”.
Tai Chi classes are unique in that they evolve with the student’s comfort level and goals. All levels of Tai Chi offer the healing and relaxation benefits for your mind, body, and soul.
After a long, hard day’s work, most people are too exhausted to hit the gym or go for a run. Furthermore, those sorts of intense workouts can be a nightmare for older folks or those with bone or joint issues.
Tai Chi is considered a low-impact form of training that’s appropriate for almost anyone. Individuals who are obese, pregnant, or just plain out-of-shape can immediately pick up Tai Chi and experience its benefits.
Even people who would consider themselves above average in terms of fitness level have plenty to gain from this low-impact style of training.
Tai Chi is the only low-impact exercise that has a proven history for reversing the aging process. Not even yoga can compare.
Positively Charged Community
When you walk into your first Tai Chi class, one of the first things you will feel is the energy of the atmosphere.
We’re a tight-knit, positively charged community and are very welcoming to prospective and new students of all kinds.
Tai Chi is ultimately about increasing happiness through its healing movements and motions. Our classes provide a loving and healthy environment to meet people and make life-long friends with other like-mind individuals. We truly offer a place where love, peace, and happiness intertwine to create a deep, joyous feeling for all who attend.
The best place to learn and/or excel in all aspects of life (Mind, Body, and Heart). They work with you, care about you, connect with you, help you improve, the list goes on. Great environment, all inclusive, Mr Burt is an amazing instructor, and the benefits you gain never seem to end. I'm always excited to walk in the door and feel like the best version of me as I walk out.
I'm loving attending here. Until friends of mine convinced me to start attending because this dojo had trainers that were very aware of many different aspects necessary for martial arts, it had always been a "Bucket List" item for me. Now it's turning into a reality with a detailed plan in place that Mr. Burt goes over with you from the beginning. Can't say enough good things about it!
My 16 year old son, 11 year old son, and myself are loving taking karate as a family at AKKA!! Tom is a great teacher who is very good with all levels of students... he is very knowledgeable and makes it easy to understand what he expects... My boys were in karate classes when they were younger, but when their instructor left, my boys didn't enjoy karate anymore... Tom makes karate enjoyable and more about the art instead of the fight!! I highly recommend this karate school to anyone at any age!! #thefamilywhokicktogethersticktogether

We’ve already covered most of the health benefits above, but here they are again compiled for you.
Regular practice nourishes and rejuvenates the mind, body, and soul. In a physical sense, Tai Chi strengthens the lower body and improves balance. It promotes good posture and improves joint flexibility, making it easier to stand and move around.
The flowing movements of Tai Chi and the shifting of weight improves blood flow throughout the body, which means a healthier heart.
As you learn to relax physically through the Tai Chi practice, you also relax your mind, easing the stress of work, relationships, family, and life. Coping with stress is a major benefit that attracts most people to the ancient art of Tai Chi.
Students of all ages, shapes, sizes, and abilities have participated in and enjoyed our classes. Tai Chi is considered a low-impact form of exercise, meaning it is very mild and soothing to practice.
The basic and essential movements of Tai Chi are taught and practiced in slow motion. We provide real-time instruction and body adjustments so that you can feel the movements how they are meant to be felt.
Almost anyone can come in and learn the Tai Chi practice with optimism and desire.
Typically, it takes anywhere from 20 to 30 hours of class to learn and memorize all the basic movements. This depends greatly on the schedule of your teaching location. The benefits of Tai Chi, however, are felt immediately. As you begin to practice the flowing movements of Tai Chi, your body will start the healing process, and you will experience many of the benefits listed above.
Long after you master the beginner movements, your Tai Chi practice will continue to evolve with you. You may continue to study at deeper and deeper levels, further increasing its benefits, and embodying the Tai Chi principles for life.
Tai Chi, when properly instructed and practiced, can be safely and effectively performed by anyone capable of standing and walking around. The Tai Chi movements can and should be followed at your individual aptitude and always adjusted to your current level of health.
It may be comforting to know that plenty of scientific research has shown that Tai Chi has proven beneficial to those suffering from most chronic illnesses, including heart disease, arthritis, and diabetes. Here is a link to just one of the many studies done on Tai Chi.
If you have any physical ailment or disability it is important to consult a medical professional before beginning your Tai Chi practice.
I’ve personally purchased a Tai Chi for beginners video some years ago. While it was very informative and instructional, there is really nothing that can replace learning Tai Chi in person from an experienced instructor.
Videos and books also lack the community feeling that Tai Chi classes have to offer, which is a significant motivating factor to actually getting up and practicing.
