Misawa International Association sponsored 3 free Tai Chi lessons on February 4, 11, and 18 at the Misawa Civic Gymnasium from 1000-1130. Our wonderful and kind instructor was Ms. Setsuko Nakanishi, a Japan Wushu Taijiquan Federation Official Instructor.
Each lesson included stretching, Tai Chi instruction and demonstations. She demonstrated different styles and showed us movements with fans and a sword. Today we had our final free lesson but were able to sign up for more at only ¥500 / lesson! If you can’t make a lesson, you do not pay. This is very convenient for me since I sometimes have prior engagements on Saturday mornings, but the ones I am free I will be sure to go to my Tai Chi lesson with Nakanishi sensei!
We were also invited by the Misawa Park Authority to practice Tai Chi together at Misawa Train Park this spring when the cherry blossoms bloom. I can’t wait!
Our class was shown on local TV and this newspaper.
