Here are three examples out of many.

the correct pronunciation of Tai Chi, i.e., “Tie Jee”.)

Inclement Weather?
If weather forces cancellation of a class (or Sat. practice),
a cancellation notice will be posted on this home page
at least an hour or two before class time,
so please check before leaving to come to class.

(We do not necessarily follow the school or government closing schedules.
If you cannot access the site, please call the office if you have a question.
Any cancelled classes will be made up by adding a class on at the end of the term.)

Box turtles are so named because they are the only turtle
able to enclose itself completely for protection.
