Artimus Hedrick

Artimus Hetrick has been studying martial arts since 1982. His interest in the arts began at the early age of seven when he discovered his natural ability to draw. Before long, Artimus found himself translating drawing forms onto paper into creating postures and forms as his personal "body art".

Artimus has studied Isshinryu Karate in Northeast MD , Okinawa Te Karate in Los Angeles , CA under Shihan Doversola, and in 1994 under the guidance of Sensei Tom Young discovered Ninpo (Ninjutsu), the first art that emphasized relaxation and body mechanics as opposed to force and speed.

In 2001, Artimus began studying at Ming Tao T'ai Chi Ch'uan with Sifu Diane Cannon. His initial attraction to T'ai Chi was for more of a spiritual path than a martial one. However, Artimus has discovered, with only three years experience in this complex art, that it is very holistic, encompassing the physical, spiritual, and everything in between. His dedication and respect for the art has enabled him to experience the T'ai Chi Solo Form, San Shou, Pushing Hands, Applications, various Weapons Forms, Pa-Kua and Hsing-Yi. Artimus looks forward to helping others discover the wonders of the Art of T'ai Chi Ch'uan.
