SenseiCarolynSensei Carolyn – 4th Degree Black Belt

Sensei Carolyn began her martial arts training nearly twenty years ago because her daughter was interested in pursuing martial arts. One of the things Sensei Carolyn most enjoys about her martial arts practice is the peace of mind it provides. In addition to physical and mental fitness, Sensei Carolyn enjoys the feeling of inner confidence she has developed through her ongoing practice with a unique ability to stay calm, clear and balanced during the ups and downs of everyday life.

As a teacher, Sensei Carolyn finds it most satisfying when students are visibly seen experiencing, progressing and experiencing the same benefits she experiences. She knows that the benefits she has experienced and that are true for her can benefit and be true for everyone. Sensi Carolyn is also a skilled T’ai Chi practitioner and instructor. She enjoys the slow, graceful movements and the feeling of stress falling off of her and dissolving away. Sensei Carolyn says she always feels much more on balance after teaching or performing T’ai Chi.
