There is a general lack of awareness and understanding about the ancient practice of Tai Chi Chuan - Supreme Ultimate Boxing. People know Tai Chi as a slow-moving exercise often seen in medical commercials performed by people looking happy and peaceful. There is a vague recognition that it is somehow “like yoga” and “good for you” and that is about it!!
Tai Chi is an easy-to-learn routine that improves health, balance, and relaxation. Tai Chi is low impact and can easily be done by everyone including seniors, people with illnesses and injuries, and even small children. In fact, it is a great exercise for these types of people due to the extraordinary health benefits that result from continued efforts.
• Low impact exercise that anyone can practice

Since childhood, Peter has always been interested in martial arts and in Asian culture. After University School, Peter attended the University of Florida receiving an Asian Studies degree with high honors and studying abroad in Japan. Peter began practicing Tai Chi Chuan in 1990 on a beach of Thailand. Beginning with a two-day workshop, he stayed for three additional weeks training daily and learning the traditional Yang-Style Tai Chi of Professor Cheng Man-Ching. After graduate school with an MBA and a Master of International Management (MIM), Peter was the founder and CEO of a software company in the emergency management sector. For 20 years, he was constantly in front of large groups of people training, educating, presenting and public speaking across the country. During this period, Tai Chi was always important, and many teachers were found, workshops attended, and hours practiced. In 2017, Peter sold his company and, on a whim, began teaching Tai Chi classes in Nashville. The classes were an unexpected success and have continued to grow and expand since then. Now, Peter is a full-time Tai Chi teacher and a strong advocate for this amazing, healthful, and relaxing activity. Peter is ‘old school’ Nashville having attended H.G. Hill Elementary School and graduating from University School of Nashville in 1985.
