Tai Chi

Tai Chi is a noncompetitive, self-paced system of gentle physical exercise and stretching. To do Tai Chi, you perform a series of postures of movements in a slow, graceful manner. Each posture flows into the next without pause, ensuring that your body is in constant motion.

Tai Chi can help reduce stress. During Tai Chi, you focus on movement and breathing. This combination creates a state of relaxation and calm. Stress, anxiety, and tension should melt away as you focus on the present, and the effects may last well after you stop your Tai Chi session.

Cardio Kickboxing

The Cardio Kickboxing program offered at White’s Martial Arts implemented by Steve White is designed to improve your overall self image. Our unique program combines strength and cardio exercises that have roots based in Martial Arts. See your physical fitness and endurance levels increase as you train on punching bags and with resistance bands. Working within a group setting always helps motivate and excite the desire to train consistently and also gives you more energy and motivation. Our Cardio Kickboxing program is designed under the guidance of Steve White, and implemented by the world class group of instructors we have assembled.
