Come workout with Sensei Charlaine Martin in this Christian alternative for Tai Chi with gentle Christian instrumental music! Develop better posture, breath control, flexibility, endurance, and concentration -- with no eastern religous mediation!). Charlaine developed this graceful, non-contact martial arts system & exercise form based on soft styles from Okinawan Shorinji and American Stratiotia Christou as well as other exercise forms with similar assets. Set with the
tone of Christian contemplation of Scripture, you will learn basic moves that pull together in flowing sequences.
Sensei Charlaine Martin holds a 2nd dan Black Belt in Okinawan Shorinji and a 3rd Dan in American Stratiotia Christou, which she co-founded with her late husband, Pastor Sensei Donald Engelhardt, with the same belt ranks. Instructor training and certification will eventually be offered, but not available at this time.
