As the 19th anniversary of Dr. Craig’s diagnosis of ALS (August 16th, 2013) comes upon us, we remain in awe and wonder of his strength, perseverance and indomitable spirit. So with great pleasure, privilege and honor, we award Dr. Craig the First Honorary Black Belt from Cynthia Ming’s Tai Chi Fitness.

 

Dr. Craig is the epitome of our Student Creeds.  He is truly a living example of:

True Confidence, through knowledge of the mind, honesty in the heart and strength in the body.

He continues to develop himself in a positive manner and avoids anything that reduces his mental growth and physical health.

He continues to develop self-discipline in order to bring out the best in himself and in others.

He continues to use all his skills that he has learned constructively and defensively, to help himself and others and is never abusive or offensive.

These are the Creeds we recite at the start and the conclusion of each of our Tai Chi Lessons.

You do not have to be a Martial Artist to integrate these Creeds into your life.

Won’t you join us and stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Dr. Craig Oster?

  • Demonstrate as much wellness as possible using his integrative approach focused on diet/nutrition, mind/spirit, and physical exercise
  • Inspire people to constructively approach whatever “hand that they have been dealt in life”
  • Conduct innovative ALS scientific peer-reviewed research that has the potential to enhance the wellness and quality of lives of people with ALS and their caregivers.

Over 50 renowned integrative medicine doctors, other health professionals and scientists have joined Dr. Craig’s ALS scientific research and holistic health educational campaign advisory team.
