Learn Tai Chi and Become Fall-Proof, Wed. Sep. 4 at 6 pm, plus Dinner
- Learn Tau Chi from an expert, this Wed. evening, Sept. 4 at 6 pm, at the Opera Plaza Community Room, 601 Van Ness, San Francisco.
Winslow Rouse is a diplomate in Tai Chi, with a masters degree in counseling and certifications in acute, long-term, and residential nursing, among others. He began studying Tai Chi in 1964 with the famous Tai Chi Master Choy Kam Man and received his diploma and teaching certification eleven years later. In 1974 he founded the first accredited Tai Chi training program in the United States, at the University of California at Santa Cruz, a program which continues to this day to train university students in the principles and techniques of Tai Chi. Since then he has taught Tai Chi all over the Bay Area and in Sacramento, in many community and senior centers and in sports facilities.
When a close personal friend was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 2001 and became a fall risk, Winslow began studying nursing, determined to learn how to help people avoid the danger of falls. Dissatisfied with the fall prevention training offered in nursing school, he tried applying his training in Tai Chi to the problem of falls and developed the training program he is going to tell us about. This is a fall prevention training program which combines modern biological knowledge with the ancient wisdom of the Chinese Tai Chi masters to make anyone who can walk fundamentally fall-proof.
