Allow me to introduce the Gupta Family, Tulen Center’s April Family of the Month. Over the time I have known them, they have impressed me as a loving and kind family. They support one another fiercely and manage to keep a sense of balance, grace and humor in all they do. I remember the first day they walked into Tulen Center. My tendency is to fall in love with all the new students that walk through our doors nervous and excited to try their 14 day free membership. In the case of the Guptas, their enthusiasm, openness and joy made me feel like they were hugging me back, and it’s been that way ever since. If you haven’t met them yet, take time to introduce yourself next time you see them at Tulen Center. We are blessed to have the Guptas in our Tulen Center family.
Introducing the Gupta Family in Sonali’s words:
Myself, Sonali, am a part-time school teacher at Living Wisdom school and a mom of two wonderful kids; My loving husband, Vivek is a software professional working at ARRIS Inc. Our daughter, Gargi, is a junior at ISB (International School of Beaverton) this year, and Mas Hersh is in 7th grade also at ISB.
As a family, we love to spend most of our time together; it could be driving to-and-fro, going shopping or relaxing at home watching a nice movie.
Mas Hersh started his training at Tulen Center in January 2010. For the longest time, Mas Hersh had shown keen interest in Martial arts. About a year before he started, we had heard about & watched Mas Rowan’s brown sash test. It left an impression on our minds. So on the 2nd of Jan’10, our family walked into Tulen Center on Canyon Road.
We remember that day clearly. Mas Hersh attended an hour long class and after returning home, he slept for three hours straight! We admire the amount of strength & stamina he has developed through the training at Tulen Center.
Recently, Mas Hersh injured his knee and was asked not to put any weight on that leg. He came up to us and said,” I am so… grateful to Goeroe and Mas Rob for giving me good training on my crane stance….!”
We are fortunate to have Tulen Center in our lives. We are thankful to Pendekkar Silvia and Goeroe Jeff for their loving, caring guidance and encouragement to Mas Hersh in this journey.
