Tai Chi Chih is an easy to learn moving mediation with 19 movements and one pose. It has no martial applications. The movements are similar to swimming through heavy air with softness and continuity. It can be done by anyone regardless of age or condition and it can be performed seated, standing or lying down, and it is an excellent form of exercise for seniors.

SPC License to Carry Handgun Class:
LEVELLAND – South Plains College will offer the new Texas License to Carry a Handgun class on Saturday, October 1st, in the Law Enforcement Technology building on the Levelland campus. The class will begin at 8:00 a.m. with breaks every hour as well as a lunch break.
The classroom portion covers firearm safety, the use of force, non-violent conflict resolution, lawful concealed or open carry, storage with children in the home, and contacts with law enforcement personnel. It runs about six hours.
The range portion covers range safety rules and commands, and the shooting portion of the class at distances ranging from three to fifteen yards, using the indoor pistol range in the Law Enforcement building. The number of students will determine how long the range portion requires. Inexperienced shooters might want to take the N.R.A. Basic Pistol course before taking the L.T.C. course.
Students will need to bring either a revolver or semiautomatic pistol of at least .32 caliber, and fifty rounds of ammunition to match. Eye and hearing protection are provided for students who do not have their own.
The instructor is Dr. Mike Felker, a retired college professor, NRA Advanced Pistol Instructor, D.P.S. certified LTC Instructor, and U.S. Concealed Carry Association Affiliate Instructor.
The cost of the course is $75 for students getting their first license, and $25 for students wanting a refresher course before renewing their license. Although renewals are now handled strictly online, the changes in Texas firearms law in 2013 and 2015 make a refresher course a good investment. Students need to register and pay in advance. Space is limited. To sign up, call Kasey Reyes at (806) 716-2341 or email email@example.com.
