About me - Michael O'Hara

I am just a fellow human trying to live a simple and happy life.  I have been studying martial arts for  twenty years.  I am grateful to have learned from prominent teachers across the US and have been asked to share the art that I love.

About the art

I have studied Hung Gar and Wing Chun styles of Kung Fu, as well as Yang and Sun styles of Tai Chi.  The Sun has been my main style and what I will be sharing.  It was created 150 years ago by Sun Lutang and is a universal style that combines strength, agility, flexibility, alignment, continuity, mindfulness and other aspects that make it a beautiful art.     

The vision

The goal is simple.  To help others learn and benefit from the art as I have in a relaxed and enjoyable environment.  Not only is the Sun style graceful, it functions as an effective martial art that can be practiced by anyone with the dedication to learn.
