Thursday class at Fitchburg Senior Center is now FREE and open to everyone

I am happy to announce that Kathryn and I have decided not to collect fees for the Thursday class at Fitchburg Senior Center. We want to encourage participation in this class and invite anyone to come learn taijiquan. Setting a fee would be against our intention to teach this class. Please share this with friends and family, young and old, let’s have fun together.
