WESTCHESTER, N.Y., Feb. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Master Domingo Colon, a Tai Chi instructor from Bronxville in Westchester, New York, has created a new and exciting Tai Chi Program for kids.
Whereas most people believe Tai Chi is for adults only, Master Colon wants anyone of any age to be able to benefit from this ancient Chinese health system.
Tai Chi's ability to improve concentration, focus, self-esteem, confidence, and discipline is exactly what many children need.
Of course, Tai Chi will also provide the various health benefits that have made this art world-famous, including increased strength, flexibility, coordination, deeper breathing, and improved circulation.
Master Colon has long realized that children were often being overlooked by most Tai Chi instructors. Because most teachers of Tai Chi begin their own studies as adults, it was usually viewed as simply something that children could not absorb.
Unlike these other instructors, Master Colon began his own study of Tai Chi while only 15 years old. While he was taught just as all other adults were at the time, he realized even then that this was an amazing art that anyone could learn.
"It has been my goal for some years to provide an alternative healthy and fun pastime for children who may not have the desire or temperament to participate in the usual school team sport and fitness activities," says Master Colon.
"I believe children should be introduced to a healthy lifestyle that will guide them through their entire lives, rather than wait until they become seniors and are already experiencing many physical (and psychological) difficulties to learn healthy habits.
"Many of the ills experienced today could have been easily avoided if people had been exposed to this valuable information in enjoyable and fun ways while still children."
With a background of over 45 years of Tai Chi experience and working with many children in specialized settings (such as St. Mary's Children's Rehabilitation Hospital, the Linden Hill School, Grayson Foundation, Pelham Arts Center, Andrus Children's Center, the Lincoln Academy, and many others), Master Colon designed this unique program specifically for children ages 8-11 years old.
An Open House is scheduled for March 2, 2010 at 5:30 pm to allow parents and children to experience this unique class. This free event will take place at the Tai Chi School of Westchester, 27 Milburn Street, Bronxville, New York.
