Self defense for War and Peace!-Introducing Wayne Key
I have studied martial art forms for many years including Kung-Fu, Tai Kwan Do and Karate among the more common forms as well as Kali, Arnis and Escrema among the uncommon ones. Even though I am not currently practicing the hard forms beyond lightly sparring with my 9 year old boy which soon turns into a tickle fest (because he loves it). I really appreciate these ancient Arts.
I wanted to tell you about my friend Wayne Key, I have known him since our kids were in preschool. He has been practicing Martial Arts and Tai Chi for over 26 years and is teaching classes in central Austin.
Yes, we all would like to think we know what to do during times of extreme danger such as in war or when someone is attacking us. I know it is a scary thought, but I am especially interested in women knowing what to do if they are in a situation. Be not afraid!
My Friend Wayne Key, has been practicing Martial Arts for over 26 years and is an advanced Black Belt Instructor so he knows self defense. He is teaching a very valuable workshop this weekend and wants you to know some essentials to protect yourself. Join me in learning more!

Wayne’s instruction is mostly about peaceful practices these days (Except for the occasional Self Defense Seminar). Tai Chi is an ancient calming and focusing practice which improves your health by increasing your Chi. It is self defense for stress! If you practice Tai Chi, you will decrease your tendency to react to stress, improve your breath control, balance and health in many ways. Check out Wayne Key’s website for lots of articles. http://taichifitness.info/
I like Tai Chi movement because of it’s gentle movements that get energy moving in the body (that is the Chi part)
Here is Wayne Key demonstrating a sample of the Yang 10 form.
With more than 26 years of training and degrees in both Psychology and Philosophy, Wayne specializes in Tai Chi based fitness and renewal. He believes that the Yin and Yang approach of Tai Chi reflects the whole person. This perspective informs his approach to understanding our bodies and our lives. Wayne’s perspective is neither Eastern nor Western but rather it is a fully rounded approach that incorporates both perspectives in the classes that he teaches so that your experience in wholeness and wellness as a result.
Wayne’s depth of knowledge about this form has extensive benefits referenced and listed on his website (see below). So if you ever were looking into Tai Chi for a restorative health practice, then check out Wayne Key and his classes.
May you always live in peace or know what to do in War!
