    Chico Tai Chi: "A sharper mind: Tai Chi practice can improve cognitive function"

By age 70, one in six people has mild cognitive impairment (which can progress to Alzheimer's disease). Up until about two decades ago, it was believed that your brain only produced new cells early in life. But research has shown that the brain has the ability to change throughout your entire life span, growing new cells, ....

    Tai chi may be as good as physical therapy for arthritis-related knee pain

    Chico Martial Artist Stands Against Domestic Violence: Azad's Martial Arts Center

    Why do I take a stand against Domestic Violence?
    Domestic Violence is inhumane and unacceptable. Everyone should take a strong stand and speak out loudly against domestic violence. Although women are not the only ones abused domestically, over 85% of victims of domestic violence are women. Unfortunately, men are the major problem and perpetrators in this equation. One way to end domestic violence is to actively speak against it in our families and friends’ circles as well as in our communities and aggressively educate our boys. We must educate the boys and young men that being a man is much more than just being a male. Being a male is a matter of chance ....
