Teacher Jude on the Move Again

Teacher Jude recently moved from the FT Walton Beach, Fl area to the Mobile, AL area. The move was prompted by the loss of her husband's employment and a return to the area where her husband's family lives. 

Jude is maintaining the Blue Willow Tai Chi group in the Florida area by traveling there once a month to support the students and instructors in training.

"I don't want to say here I go again, but..." says Jude. "I keep reminding myself that if I could learn and get certified in all six forms 3000 miles away from my teacher (Mst Jim), then anything is possible, especially if it is only a two hour drive."

Jude moved from Virginia Beach in 2008, where she was the Nam Hoa Senior Instructor for Bending Tree Tai Chi.  Her husband was reassigned with a military contractor to Florida. Says Jude, "That's the life of a military family; it's hard in so many ways."

The Nam Hoa group continues in the Virginia Beach area under the watchful eyes of Senior Instructor Tom Wolf and other Nam Hoa supporters. Bending Tree Tai Chi is owned by Tai Chi East West Alliance (TEA), a non-profit organization formed with dedicated instuctors and students of Bending Tree. The Nam Hoa program, as well as other Tai Chi programs, thrives there today.

"It's wonderful that the Bending Tree group continues to grow in Virginia. It tells all of us that all that is really needed are committed students and wonderful people who love to offer the teaching," says Jude.

Jude plans to slowly grow the Florida group, eventually start a Mobile, AL group and fuse the two groups together to form Gulf Coast Tai Chi.

"When the Tai Chi community is strong enough, I hope that Master Jim will travel here when he travels to Virginia. I know the students would be so blessed to meet him and practice with him," she explains. "I recall his first visit with the Virginia students really brought so much enthusiam and dedication to the practice."
