When I first began training here at Master Gohring's Tai Chi and Kung Fu I was impressed with how friendly the students were. I felt welcomed by beginners and long time students too. There was no clique-type feeling.
The Tai Chi and Qi Gong trained me to have better balance, coordination and self-guided relaxation. I was able to refocus myself and my life. The school also has a great family program for kids. I started my daughter in the Kung Fu program when she was 11. I have seen her blossom as a young girl and in the program. She has better self-confidence, self-discipline and self-defense. She has made some good friends here in Austin at the school and she seems to make better friends at public school too.
Then I decided to make a big change in my life and take a real chance on myself at the same time. I joined Master Gohring's Certified Instructor Training program about a year and a half ago. At this point I am an Assistant Instructor. I enjoy what I do (sharing martial arts to individuals and families) and love going to work everyday. I will earn my black sash in Tai Chi this December and should earn my black sash in Kung Fu next year. It is a challenging process that is worth it to me every step of the way.
I encourage anyone who has been thinking about getting into martial arts to try this school.
