Self defense

corporate self & situational Awareness

tai chi

I attended a few of Sensei Bast’ seminars and I was impressed with his knowledge, character, humility, strength and love of the arts. He presents material in a way that the beginner, intermediate, or experienced practitioner can learn and he loves to exchange knowledge and techniques. In addition to gaining knowledge, I gained a friend. Keep doing what you do Mr. Bast.
