Holly Sweeney-HillmanJudith Rew
Affiliated Instructor
Tai Chi Academy of North Jersey

Judith Rew began her training in Traditional Yang Family Tai Chi Chuan with Holly Sweeney-Hillman about 16 years ago and has achieved the level of Copper Tiger (Level 4) in the Yang Family ranking system. Previously, Judith trained in Goju Ryu and Shotokan karate for 15 years.

In August 2012 she traveled to China with fellow tai chi students and center director Holly Sweeney-Hillman. She competed in the Yang Traditional Tai Chi Fourth International Invitational Tournament of Shanxi Province, China, and earned two bronze medals. This was her second trip to China. The first was in 2007 when she attended training classes with Master Yang Zhenduo and his grandson, Master Yang Jun. Her love of the Chinese language and culture awakened during that trip and she has studied Mandarin since.

Judith took over the teaching of all classes in Montclair about six years ago. In addition to teaching the Tai Chi Montclair classes as part of the Tai Chi Academy of Northern New Jersey, which attract a wide range of students of all ages and abilities, she teaches or has taught in senior centers, assisted living facilities, a natural healing center, and a county correctional facility for men in Essex County, New Jersey.

Judith's martial arts training began as a strong interest in self defense for women and now focuses on the physical and mental health benefits of tai chi. Her "day job" is as a graphic designer and she finds tai chi to be the perfect antidote to the hours spent working at a computer. She knows that many people could benefit from this practice as she has.
