L-R: Kevin Ho, Emilio Alpanseque, Kenny Perez, Gene Ching & Patrick LugoDear loyal readers - this is our last bimonthly issue for a while.

Tai Chi and Veterans Affairs ProgramThe Department of Veterans Affairs in Murfreesboro Tennessee now offers the only adaptive Tai Chi class in the U.S.A. for veterans.
