Morning Moving Meditation Class

Black Tiger Karate & Self Defence is pleased to announce that beginning in March 2018 we will introduce a new morning class. The primary focus will be on gentle exercise to help develop internal energy, to move in a relaxed manner and to help practitioners relieve stress and live a more balanced life. Classes will be open to adults of all levels and abilities.

The class will be guided by Paul Yanuziello who has been studying various forms of martial arts for the last 30 years. He has studied deeply the art of moving meditation, combining elements of Tai-Chi Chaun, Chi Chung, Ki no Kokyuho (Ki Breathing), Karate, Koryu Martial Arts and Kobudo. Paul is also a member of Certified Professional Trainers Network and is studying to become a Certified Fitness Trainer.
