I was looking for an activity that could help me with flexibility, balance and cognitive skills. Bojutsu has given me that and more. It can be a very physical workout or a meditative time by doing it slowly. Tom is a skilled instructor and very enthusiastic in helping others learn at their own pace. I look forward to class every week. It's fun.
