I have been diabetic since age 3 and am insulin dependent. I have been your (tai chi) student for several weeks. (After more than 10 years of no sensation in my feet from diabetic neuropathy, since beginning my tai chi practice), sensation in my feet has increased, and for the last two weeks (the sensations) have increased strongly. I am positive that the tai chi system gives very good results for my diabetic condition. Alla Pourzyreva

I am very pleased with my training at the Body Mind Systems School of Martial Arts. I will not call it a karate school, or even a martial arts school. You learn about martial arts in this school; and how it can impact you in your daily life as well as how the various martial arts that you learn in this school can help you to become better prepared physically as well as mentally towards meeting daily challenges. I would call this a school that enhances and teaches you life long lessons in utilizing your training, understanding, knowledge and observations in the teachings of the martial arts. The martial arts that you learn at this school should become a daily part of everyones life just as essential as breathing. We breathe every day but dont think about it or even notice but it is essential to our daily lives and this is how much I feel about the martial arts as it should be a daily part of everyones life and lifestyle. By learning about the various martial arts that are taught within the school I personally have learned a lot about myself. I have learned about how my body and mind works and responds to various martial arts forms as well as the understanding of what my body can do today and what I could expect from it going forward. When I first began this program I started out at the age of 49, my back was very sore to the point where my leg got numb from just plain walking for 30 min per day. I couldnt even walk 3 miles without having to stop at least 2 or 3 times before completing my walk due to the numbness in my leg. My back went out four months prior to my attending this school and I had to use crutches and canes just to get up and walk around. At one point I couldnt even put my leg on my other knee and couldnt even bend forward to put on my socks. When I started with Body Mind Systems they told me to bend over and try to touch my toes, I couldnt even get past my knees. I also experienced constant back pain each and every day. Today exactly one year later, my back pain is either non-existent or I occasionally have minor back pain that will go away once I start stretching and practicing the martial arts. I can now without any warm up get to within about 2 ½ inches from my toes and with a good warm up actually go past my toes and touch the floor. I am now 50 years old and it is my belief that the last time I was able to touch the floor without bending my knees was when I was 4 years old. Right now I am very happy with my training as well as obtaining a better knowledge and understanding of the martial arts training that I am receiving. I practice each and every day and I feel better and stronger as well as more confident in myself that I can overcome any challenges presented to me. I would highly recommend this school to anyone wanting to improve themselves physically as well as mentally.

I was quite impressed with the way Sensei Werth greeted us before class, having been fully prepped on the quirks of my sometimes overly sensitive 8-year old. What impressed me most is that he met us in regular clothing before dressing to lead the class - thereby giving my son an opportunity to interact with him as a regular person he might meet on the street as opposed to another instructor we'd visited a few years prior, who was already engaged in teaching students. My son was "incorporated" into the class, not just to observe, but to participate so he'd have a much better (hands on) opportunity to understand how the class was run. What continued to impress me was that Sensei Werth continued to be the genuine individual he is and not morph into someone teaching in a rote manner - he managed to meet each individual in the family class where they were, without judgement and clearly giving them the respect he aspired to be given himself. I wish I could introduce you to my son as a part of this review as it's difficult to relay in writing how challenging he can be. He is silly at times, has hopelessly high expectations of his abilities (and himself) at other times...he's probably just like any other boy aged 8-10 years old, but the only one that I've had to raise. He's funny and smart, but always thinking, thinking, thinking, and if he thinks he can't master something right away, he's ready to throw in the towel and quit. Sensei Werth has a manner about him that is curious, respectful and encouraging - basically the patience of a saint when it comes to young children. How he and the co-owner of the dojo manage essentially a pack of wild wolves (boys) during a class (we've been to 3 now!) is amazing. Wait, don't think there's only young children in this class as well as beginners - no, there are adults and parents participating as well! My martial arts experience is limited and from well over 20 years ago, so I like to think I have a good idea of classes can be run. My experience is more from a self-defense prospect; I very much enjoyed classes offered by my Sensei in college, but he did have a slightly different approach when he was addressing larger groups of individuals at varying levels and practicing Go-Jo-Ru Karate. Sensei Werth's approach with students seems much more gentle and individualized - skills are not rushed and everyone is encouraged to participate at their level - whether it be skill and/or energy. Overall, this has been a very rewarding experience and I look forward to seeing my son's self-confidence (the secondary goal) grow and hope he's able to learn how to efficiently and safely burn off his abundant energy (primary goal).

Dave taught a class at Middlesex College as part of the senior learning program. I found him to be an excellent instructor and enjoyed learning Tai Chi and Qigong practice from him. Very enthusiastic, but patient and careful in the teaching.

I began training in Tai Chi with Nicanor about 18 months ago, and although I had trained in a martial arts background which included Tai Chi for over 15 years, learning Tai Chi from Nicanor has been outstanding. He truly understand the internal aspects of Tai Chi and teaches in a way that my Western mind can understand. He is a gifted teacher, and incredibly generous in sharing his knowledge with his students. I am thrilled to be studying with Nicanor and hope to continue for many years ahead.
