David has been teaching tai chi for over 20 years and QiGong for 15 years. He has taught children, teens, adults and seniors. David currently teaches tai chi and QiGong at the college level for credit and noncredit courses and specializes in working with the physically disabled.
He recently developed a modified form of tai chi and QiGong for the disabled and the elderly which can be done sitting or standing — but is mainly used to assist those with limited use of lower extremities or those confined to wheelchairs. David also teaches in rehabilitation centers and assisted living facilities. David’s love of tai chi led him to becoming trained to teach ai chi, a form of tai chi in the water. David also holds a Level III Usui Reiki Certification, is a Certified Bando Weapons instructor and has competed in Bando Weapons on the national level.
