Standing less than four feet tall and wearing size three in shoes, Tessie Smith is a very petite lady. While she may be small, don’t let her fool you. Tessie just so happens to be a third-degree black belt!

Though she used to practice tae kwon do and competed against people of all ages, Tessie now practices the slow and safe art of tai chi. In addition, she takes part in aerobics, Zumba®, walking, and swimming. Tessie is proof that you can live an active lifestyle at any age!

Watch Tessie in the Active Aging Tai Chi demonstration at Atria Stony Brook, below:
