New Class Starting

Beginner Tai Chi
Next eight-week session begins Wednesday, Jan. 2, 7-8 p.m.

Located just north of Boston in Melrose, Massachusetts, Rick Wong's Chinese Martial Arts Center offers quality instruction in both traditional Kung Fu and contemporary Wushu, as well as Tai Chi Chuan.

Once used primarily as a means of combat and self-defense, today Chinese martial arts are also taught for health and fitness. Wushu's blend of athletic prowess and aesthetic appeal makes it a popular performing art and a competitive sport.

There is a type of Chinese martial art training for everyone, regardless of age or level of physical fitness.
