A Chat with Michuan Martial Arts & Fitness
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Our goal at Michuan Martial Arts & Fitness is to present a holistic interpretation of all facets of martial arts: form work, stretching, balance, footwork, application, fitness, ethics (humility/respect/sportsmanship), healing and rejuvenation (meditation, Chi Gong, Iron Body etc.)
Exercise is challenging. How do you keep clients motivated and engaged?
Our block style classes give students easy access to instruction. Longer classes that allow for students to drop in and out according to their schedules encourages frequent participation. Let Mikey Reyes' personalized teaching style and vast knowledge inspire you to practice Tai Chi and Chi Gong.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
For over 23 years Mikey Reyes has relentlessly studied, competed and taught martial arts. His desire to create a healthy community led him to teach everyone from the Mayor of Kansas City, Sly James, to the public at large on the steps of the Nelson Art Gallery. Mikey's new school is at 5502 Troost.
What do you love most about your job?
The best part of this job is to see the amazing beauty Tai Chi has to give each person who takes the time to learn it. The rewards are boundless and it is truly fantastic to see a student fall in love with Tai Chi and reap the benefits .
