Ed Kehoe
Tai Chi and Holistic Medical Qigong
Ed Kehoe is a certified Tai Chi & Holistic Medical Qigong Instructor and owner of Kehoe Martial Arts.
In 1981 he began studying martial arts, eventually learning of  Tai Chi and Qigong in 1991. After practicing and teaching on the side for nearly 20 years, Ed officially opened Kehoe Martial Arts in 2004. Since then, he has taught an estimated 150 students per week in Tai Chi, Qigong, and self-defense.
Although he is very knowledgeable on the subjects of Tai Chi and Qigong, Ed does not subscribe to the stereotypical master and student roles often portrayed in movies. Understanding that the energy of an instructor impacts a student’s comfort and openness, Ed strives to stay calm and engaged with his students instead of establishing himself as the “master.” He prefers to share these teachings with his students on a peer-to-peer level in the hopes of enriching the experience for his students and himself.
Practicing Tai Chi and Qigong has provided many gifts to Ed and his family. As such, he originally started offering public classes with the goal of seeing how many people he could help a day. Since then his offerings have grown to include an average of 25 classes a week.
“My students are the source of everything for me,” Ed said. “They provide for me and give me an opportunity to share what I love on a daily basis.”
