Member Testimonial

The Chi Force Live sessions are small group sessions, and you just follow Stephan and Frances along, and they give valuable feedback, answer your questions, and provide helpful tips. Stephan and Frances are very capable teachers with solid Tai Chi and martial arts backgrounds and are very detail oriented and precise, but caring and patient, and great with beginners. They really want you to get it.
