Kaikudo Martial Arts has moved its Tai Chi and Qi Gong classes online and changed its name to QiMethods. Qi Methods offers online streaming, on-demand videos, Zoom classes, as well as socially-distanced, in-person classes at Brook Run Park. Streaming classes are available for free on Wednesdays and park classes are free on Saturday mornings.

“Our beloved studio in Dunwoody Village has closed down; however, a new vision has started with Qi Methods,” says Michael Issa, founder of Qi Methods, LLC. “Although I am sad to let go of our studio, I am genuinely excited to start fresh with a new focus on outdoor classes and online lessons. During a crisis, personal or otherwise, it’s important to be flexible, to adapt and see what doors open. I view this as an opportunity for rebirth!”

Michael Issa has been a student of traditional martial arts since he was six years old. He studied Taidō karate under Uchida Sensei and Okochi Sensei for 10 years before exploring other styles such as Aikido, Wing Chun and wrestling. In 2006, Issa began training under Wudang Master Yun Xiang Tseng, a 14th-generation lineage holder and 26th-generation Longmen Priest in Tai Chi, Qi Gong, Xing Yi, Sword and External Qi Healing. Issa prides himself on his easy-to-follow instructions and his ability to translate Eastern theory into a Western context.
