In this initial series, instructor Pete Chamberlain will be teaching

Born and raised in the Boston area, Pete Began studying martial arts in 1978. Over the years he has traveled across the U.S. and to Asia seeking instruction in various hard and soft styles. Most recently he has been a student of Wing Chun Master Ali Rahim (Louisville,Ky.) and Tai Chi and Qi-gong teacher Ziefu Jing V. Chao-chee, Jr. (Philippines).
