I have been fortunate to study with Master Song for almost 4 years. Over the months of learning Tai Chi under Master Soengkono, I have noticed greatly my improving strength, stamina, and mobility. My joints were very stiff due to arthritis. Climbing stairs was especially difficult in the morning – my worst time. Much to my amazement, I am now able to run up and down the stairs easily. In addition to the physical benefits, Tai Chi helps me to focus and reach an inner feeling of calmness. The hectic world is left behind as we concentrate on our exercises. Master Soengkono’s an inspiring teacher and I leave each class with a feeling of well-being and look forward to when we will meet again.
