Kenshin Taiko was founded by Laura Olson and Denise Nakashima, following the teachings of the Kenny Endo Taiko Dojo in Hawaii. Taiko refers to traditional Japanese drums and performances by those trained in the art form. The drumming is both rhythmic and energetic, performed by drummers who really put on a show!
A form of martial arts, Tai Chi uses slow, controlled movements to regulate breathing and build stamina. By focusing the mind on moving through a series of poses, a state of mental calm and clarity can help improve coordination, relaxation, and general health.
