Our 4 year old son has been training at White mountain karate under sempai since February 2020, He absolutely loves these classes sempai and miss Kelsey have such a great energy about them and really know how to connect to the kids. They have done a amazing job considering the pandemic, Sempai released videos during this time so we could practice at home and have recently opened with restrictions so it's great to get back into the Dojo thank you Sensei, Sempai and Miss Kelsey for all that you do.

It's really a great place! The instructor is an amazing teacher. He not only has great passion about the style and technique that he has learned over the years, but he also teaches the history of the style and how it came to be!

WMK is a great place to learn karate! The students are very friendly and they go the extra mile to help you. Sensei Christian creates a friendly atmosphere and his knowledge of Uechi Ryu karate is amazing!! You won't be disappointed!!

Our daughter has been learning and growing with WMK for several years now. My favorite aspect of the program is the mind/body focus where the student is not just honing karate skills but spending time on personal development as well. The Maines and WMK are an important part of our community.

If you want your child to have an extremely positive activity in their life in a supportive environment then send them here. If you are an adult or teen looking to improve your life then go here. Go here and improve. It's that simple, can't say enough

Thank you so much for your hard work planning my son's Superhero birthday party! You really went above and beyond to plan themed games, the Superhero obstacle course, and even theme music! All the kids were thrilled, and all the parents commented on what a fantastic job you did! I was even able to sit back and enjoy the party! Thank you again for making my son's day so special!

My daughter has learned self-respect and self-discipline, among many other things, and has been coached/taught with so much respect -- from when she did not even own a belt, to now being a (Junior) Black Belt Candidate. This place is the best!

My son and I have been students at White Mountain Karate for a year. I can tell you that I am a very busy professional, I work full time and have a very full family life. I had always wanted to try karate but did not feel I would have the time. After my shy son had been in the class for a month I decided to give it a try. Christian and Jenn put their heart and soul in to this Dojo. I never feel pressured to do something I can not, but am always encouraged to keep going and trying my best. White mountain Karate is all about balance of mind ,body and spirit in the dojo and in the real world. with teaching of virtue, self confidence and humility, perseverance and self control. I would highly recommend White Mountain Karate.

Does any of this

sound familiar?

Sitting at work takes up the majority of your day, and you feel the need to do something about it.

Typical forms of exercise don’t really work for you. They’re too demanding or painful, and they tire you out just thinking about them.

Nagging joint issues make simple activities like walking around a chore.

Aging is an unavoidable aspect of life

...but that doesn’t mean you can’t do it gracefully

Tai Chi is a low impact, easy-to-start form of exercise that’s perfect for men and women of all ages, shapes, and sizes. Don’t be fooled by thinking this is your typical martial arts practice. Tai Chi classes are less about self-defense, fighting, and intensity, and more about health, inner peace, and tranquility.

The flowing motions of Tai Chi will invigorate your mind and body, waging war on the years of stress and tension you’ve allowed to build up.

Feel the stress and tension melt away

Stress and anxiety can actually turn your life upside down. It can take years to fully recover from a major incident. I think it takes most people a lot longer – maybe even a lifetime.You don’t want this to happen to you. Getting ahead of your stress means slowing down and doing something to counteract years of mounting troubles.The aches, pains, and tension you feel are your body’s way of crying out for help. It’s desperate for a break and some tender, loving care.

Health Benefits Galore

For thousands of years, people have been invigorated and healed by the simple practice of Tai Chi.

There are so many health benefits Tai Chi has to offer. See for yourself some of the more notable ones…

  • Improves mood and leads to lower levels of depression
  • Soothes stress, eases anxiety, and prohibits unnecessary worries
  • Reduces inflammation and eases achy joints and muscles
  • Increases energy levels and stamina
  • Greater aerobic capacity and muscle strength
  • Lowers blood pressure and improves heart health
  • Enhances flexibility, balance, and agility

Almost sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? Well it isn’t. And that’s the wonderful power of Tai Chi classes.

The Feel of a Yoga Practice

Just because Tai Chi is low-impact, doesn’t mean it’s for wimps or sissies. Tai Chi offers the allure of a martial arts class, but with the feel of a yoga practice. In simpler terms, be a badass while healing your body.

Many beginner and expert students love the peace and relaxation of the flowing Tai Chi movements. Others love and appreciate the martial arts side of Tai Chi, more commonly known as “push-hands”.

Tai Chi classes are unique in that they evolve with the student’s comfort level and goals. All levels of Tai Chi offer the healing and relaxation benefits for your mind, body, and soul.

Low-Impact Training

After a long, hard day’s work, most people are too exhausted to hit the gym or go for a run. Furthermore, those sorts of intense workouts can be a nightmare for older folks or those with bone or joint issues.

Tai Chi is considered a low-impact form of training that’s appropriate for almost anyone. Individuals who are obese, pregnant, or just plain out-of-shape can immediately pick up Tai Chi and experience its benefits.

Even people who would consider themselves above average in terms of fitness level have plenty to gain from this low-impact style of training.

Tai Chi is the only low-impact exercise that has a proven history for reversing the aging process. Not even yoga can compare.

Positively Charged Community

When you walk into your first Tai Chi class, one of the first things you will feel is the energy of the atmosphere.

We’re a tight-knit, positively charged community and are very welcoming to prospective and new students of all kinds.

Tai Chi is ultimately about increasing happiness through its healing movements and motions. Our classes provide a loving and healthy environment to meet people and make life-long friends with other like-mind individuals. We truly offer a place where love, peace, and happiness intertwine to create a deep, joyous feeling for all who attend.

What are the health benefits of Tai Chi?

We’ve already covered most of the health benefits above, but here they are again compiled for you.

Regular practice nourishes and rejuvenates the mind, body, and soul. In a physical sense, Tai Chi strengthens the lower body and improves balance. It promotes good posture and improves joint flexibility, making it easier to stand and move around.

The flowing movements of Tai Chi and the shifting of weight improves blood flow throughout the body, which means a healthier heart.

As you learn to relax physically through the Tai Chi practice, you also relax your mind, easing the stress of work, relationships, family, and life. Coping with stress is a major benefit that attracts most people to the ancient art of Tai Chi.

Who can learn Tai Chi?

Students of all ages, shapes, sizes, and abilities have participated in and enjoyed our classes. Tai Chi is considered a low-impact form of exercise, meaning it is very mild and soothing to practice.

The basic and essential movements of Tai Chi are taught and practiced in slow motion. We provide real-time instruction and body adjustments so that you can feel the movements how they are meant to be felt.

Almost anyone can come in and learn the Tai Chi practice with optimism and desire.

How long does it take to learn the Tai Chi movements?

Typically, it takes anywhere from 20 to 30 hours of class to learn and memorize all the basic movements. This depends greatly on the schedule of your teaching location. The benefits of Tai Chi, however, are felt immediately. As you begin to practice the flowing movements of Tai Chi, your body will start the healing process, and you will experience many of the benefits listed above.

Long after you master the beginner movements, your Tai Chi practice will continue to evolve with you. You may continue to study at deeper and deeper levels, further increasing its benefits, and embodying the Tai Chi principles for life.

What if I have health problems or physical ailments?

Tai Chi, when properly instructed and practiced, can be safely and effectively performed by anyone capable of standing and walking around. The Tai Chi movements can and should be followed at your individual aptitude and always adjusted to your current level of health.

It may be comforting to know that plenty of scientific research has shown that Tai Chi has proven beneficial to those suffering from most chronic illnesses, including heart disease, arthritis, and diabetes. Here is a link to just one of the many studies done on Tai Chi.

If you have any physical ailment or disability it is important to consult a medical professional before beginning your Tai Chi practice.

I’m thinking about buying a Tai Chi video or book, will it be able to help?

I’ve personally purchased a Tai Chi for beginners video some years ago. While it was very informative and instructional, there is really nothing that can replace learning Tai Chi in person from an experienced instructor.

Videos and books also lack the community feeling that Tai Chi classes have to offer, which is a significant motivating factor to actually getting up and practicing.
