Five children in blue uniforms run around the room at the Shaolin Tai Chi Cultural Center, practicing their poses and punches before class. At the instruction of Shifu Chang Yuan, they race to the center of the room and sit cross-legged to begin meditating. "Because little kids don't have life experience, Shifu Yuan must set a good example," said instructor BeeLee Young. "He's strict, but they know he cares about them so much."

Yuan and his staff offer tai chi, kung fu, meditation and Chinese cultural classes at the center, 9310 S. Eastern Ave., Suite 123, which opened last June. His goal is to help the public find peace.
