Nan Hoa Temple
Tai Chi and Qigong Instructor
Jim Scott-Behrends of the Monteray area of Northern CA.
I had been working in the fast and furious computer/electronics industry for the past 35 years and was beginning to feel the affects of the stress. After various martial arts classes over the years I finally and surprisingly, became completely engrossed in Tai Chi while I was living in Northern California. I was encouraged by my master to help teach beginners in the Nam Hoa Temple Longevity Tree Qigong form. I was also asked by my master to lead the intermediate and advanced students in the Nam Hoa Temple Tiger and Dragon Tai Chi forms. It was very proud day when my master suggested we work toward certifying me as an instructor. After 10 years of training I am now certified to teach Nan Hoa Temple Qigong and Tai Chi forms.
