Coach Raymond has trained in Kung Fu and Tai Ji under the instruction of Shifu Salazar since 2006. For the last 3 years though Tai Chi has been her focus. She traveled to China in 2012 to train a little Kung Fu at Master Deyung’s school as well as trained in Tai chi at Chen Village. In 2014, she returned to China to learn about and train in the art of Taoist Tai chi in Wudang Mountain area. Tai chi has become a way of life for her. She feels that Shifu’s vast knowledge regarding the other aspects of martial arts such as Qi Gong and Meditation have allowed her to practice in her daily life. She gravitates more towards Tai chi because she believes she can use it not only as a means of defending myself physically but it works in defending me mentally and emotionally. When not training or teaching Tai chi, Coach Raymond works as an Engineer/Project Manager for a local Medical Device company in Largo Fl. She loves to teach because it is fun for her to witness individuals discover their inner Tai chi self.
