Crystal Klein, BA, MS, Shimu, holds a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Psychology and Art, and a Masters in Computer Science from Shippensburg University. Crystal worked for years as a computer systems analyst. She started her studies in Martial Arts during college, but found her true calling when learning Tai Chi. She attained the rank of Shimu in 2010, under Master Paul Miller at Lehigh Valley Martial Arts.
Crystal assisted instructing Tai Chi starting in 2005, while raising her children. Her daughters are also Shimus in Kung Fu. She has taken multiple Healing Arts classes under the direction of Master Paul Miller, whose philosophy is that the Healing Arts and Martial Arts are a required complement to each other. Crystal was originally attracted to the Martial Arts because of its philosophy of control of life, but now is more attracted to the concept of balance thru all aspects of life.
Crystal not only teaches people how to transform their lives with the martial arts, but also uses her master’s level art courses and talent to transform children and adults with the intricate lines and beautiful colors in her face and body paintings.
