My name is Maki. I was born and raised in the southern part of Japan-- Kagoshima.

I have been teaching Tai Chi Chuan for almost a decade. My passion is to share the greatness of Tai Chi Chuan with others for their well-being. The more I learn about Tai Chi Chuan, the more I discover about myself. I want to help you discover the depths of learning that can be found in regular Tai Chi Chuan practice.
