Japanese Tea Ceremony Spring Fundraiser

Ceremony Master Noriko Takashima
We are very excited and honored to welcome ceremony master Noriko Takashima to our dojo on April 28.
Have you ever wanted to see a traditional Japanese tea ceremony? Much more than the making and drinking of tea, this ceremony is a traditional Japanese art. Join us for our Japanese Tea Ceremony and experience the meditative nature of two different ceremony styles, Furo-temae and Chabako-temae. As a part of our Spring Fundraiser, this art will be demonstrated at CTCC.

Hiromi’s Spring 2018 Workshop

Come join us for Hiromi Sensei’s Spring 2018 Workshop!

Hiromi Sensei will be teaching the 6-Step Beginner T’ai Chi form. This form has something to offer everyone — if you are brand new to T’ai Chi, it is a great introduction to the basic principles of moving more mindfully.

For intermediate students it provides a very helpful review and also offers opportunities to work on the balance needed for kicks beyond the 14-step.

Additionally, it can be a wonderfully convenient option for all students for their home practice when time is limited.
