His yard had a large vegetable garden and multiple fig trees. He had a flower in his yard that I admired it was called Rose Campion. Next thing I know they are growing in my yard. When I would come home from work I would find things done around my yard. Weeds were pulled, flowers planted, etc. I wondered who was doing these nice things for me.

LEARN TAI CHI AT HOME

One of the questions I am often asked is “Can I learn Tai Chi at home.” My answer would be yes and no.

by Richard Morrison Shidoin, 5th DanCenter Island Aikido Long Island New York   Chapter 1 Get Out of Bed I teach Aikido class on Friday morning from 6 am- 7 am. Actually I get there about 5:35 to stretch out. I hate to get up early. I hate to think about getting up early. I hate having to go to bed early the night before so that I can get up early. The entire idea of getting up early is distasteful. I remember years ago sitting in a movie theatre thinking about having to get up early. I decided then...

I have often read online that Tai Chi cures and reduces anxiety and panic attacks. Why then did I, a person who practiced Tai Chi every day for many years, find myself suffering from anxiety and panic attacks?

Every website I found with the so-called answer wanted some sort of payment. I would have to read pages of marketing fluff. When I got...
