After almost a year at Master Gohring's Tai Chi and Kung Fu, I can definitely say that his program is more expansive and comprehensive than any other martial arts studio I have trained at. He presents a wide variety of styles and an ever-increasing array of forms and drills with which to improve one's awareness of the body, self-defense skills and overall health. Empty-hand, weapon, external, internal, fast, slow - it's all there to hone different areas of your mind and body, but Sifu Gohring also retains a traditional code of martial ethics, forming a spiritual framework that elevates his classes from sport training into a life practice. It's not a cult, a religion, or any other subversive faction, but an additional way of approaching the challenges of life with focus, humility, and determination. Master Gohring requests we review his work as part of our graduation application, in addition to the benefits of making us meditate on what we have learned, this shows his constant desire for feedback to make sure he is meeting the student's needs and improving his teaching. Part of his humility admits that no matter one's station, there is always room for improvement, and he practices the focus and determination which by example to show us that reaching our goals is a possibility in within our grasp.
