Our entire family is studying martial arts at Master Gohring’s Tai Chi and Kung Fu in Austin, TX. We have been members for over two years, and it is one of the best investments we could ever make. This is no rinky-dink outfit…Master Gohring’s school is extremely professional and would appeal to the most serious martial arts student as well as the beginner.
Learning and practicing martial arts has helped all of us become more physically fit and mentally focused. However, there are some other aspects of Master Gohring’s school that have impacted us on other levels.
First, when my husband and I enrolled our two children in the Little Dragons Kung Fu class, we did not know or expect that we also would be able to take Tai Chi or Kung Fu classes at a discount. Because of this generous policy, our family has a common interest that is healthy, active and affordable. We are grateful to Master Gohring for promoting families in this way.
Second, I am impressed with Master Gohring’s sincerity. I believe he and his instructors have the best interests of the students at heart. Master Gohring is honest in both his praise and his correction when he teaches. He has a natural style and a true desire to help his students discover their inner teacher. I enjoy the way he provides simple analogies and examples to explain certain concepts. Classes are always constructive and satisfying. I am grateful for the wholehearted commitment from Master Gohring. It is inspiring.
Finally, I admire Master Gohring’s ability to command the respect and attention of his students, from the Little Dragons (4-, 5-, and 6-year-olds) to the most advanced. Because Master Gohring creates an awareness and healthy respect for authority, I believe his students are open and able to take advantage of the wisdom of experience.
Master Gohring also reminds his young students that they “must do what their parents ask them to do the first time they ask them to do it, every time.” I have quoted him many times at home, and it is clearly understood that this is also our expectation. Master Gohring’s example has made me a better parent, and I appreciate that.
In closing, I feel honored to know Master Gohring and to call him “Sifu” and would vouch for his integrity and ability as a teacher without reservation.
We invite everyone to visit Master Gohring’s Tai Chi and Kung Fu! It’s the most professional, yet friendly martial arts school in town. You will not only master Tai Chi and/or Kung Fu, but you will become a better person in the process!
