Monthly Challenge May Share your knowledge!

Do you ever reflect on your training and think about what you’ve found to be most helpful, interesting or encouraging? Do you have particular interest or knowledge of a certain area of martial arts practice?

I’d like to challenge you this month to sit down and write about it!

Write about anything in the martial arts (Tai Chi, Kungfu or health and wellness) and share it with us. It might be a list of talking points shared in class, a report on something you’ve recently read, or simply an account of your progress. It can be as long or as short as you’d like.

Please email at and at the end of the month I would like to select an article or two to share with our CMAA members.

Sash Test As a reminder, we will be holding our next quarterly Sash Test on Sunday June 2nd. More information coming soon!

CMAA Apparel New “soft” style jackets with full zippers in all kids and adult sizes are now in and they look great! They are available for just $60 ($15 less than our other style!). Please note the original half zip warm up style jackets are still available as well.

Summary As usual stay tuned for more exciting news and information about upcoming events! More info coming soon about another Tai Chi documentary (on Chen style Tai Chi), Kids Kungfu Movie (Disney’s Mulan) our Sash Test, and a CMAA martial arts performance June 30th!
