The Tai Chi Chuan Center has been my second chance in life!!!
It started 5 years ago with a total hip replacement at the age of 42. Dealing with alcohol and drugs to overcome the pain was a way of life for me. I’ve dealt with this pain most of my life, with a broken back from an accident at work.
My life hit rock bottom with my wife of 24 years leaving me due to the state of mind caused from pain. Then, fate lead me to the Tai Chi Chuan Center!
It’s been about one year now since I joined the Tai Chi Chuan Center and met Master Chu and the whole staff. It’s just short of a miracle: NO PAIN, lost 45 lbs., and I’m proud to say that I’m spending time with my daughter and not drinking!
I attend as many classes as I can, on some days two. I hear Master Chu speak about Chi this and Chi that, make round and breathe, etc. It’s over my head. But Master Chu says, “JUST DO IT, don’t think about how it works - just know that it does.”
In closing, I’m pleased to share the experience of my second chance. My journey ahead is long, but on my way I hope I can make a little difference in someone else’s life and give back this true spirit.
