Laura Hall

“I think it's working! My memories from when I spent my summers at a program called INMED (Indians into Medicine) when I was a kid and my high school memories from before the wreck are coming back! I just had to tell you!”

Thomas Turner

“I practice Kali every day As a senior I have found it helps my brain and body to work together”

Michal Szczesny

“I think it's fair to say that Kali has helped me improve my concentration, resilience, stress management, memory, and overall physical fitness!”

Dr. Sean Mullen

“Paul’s drills are movement-based versions of stationary cognitive tasks that have been used to assess thinking and information processing for decades”
