What is Tai Chi?
One of the ‘internal’ martial arts of China, Tai Chi Chuan (the full name of the art) promotes health and well-being as well as being a potent form of self-defence. One of the enigmas of the art is that it can be practised on many levels, from a simple meditative exercise for health, to a realistic martial art.
How do I start and when do you meet?
You can just turn up between 7.30 and 9pm on a Monday (not bank holidays) and join in. Feel free to email first if you’d like to ask any questions and we’ll get back to you.
What should I expect?
We’re a small, friendly group who have been training together for a number of years. If you want to learn Tai Chi without any of the ‘martial arts’ side then that’s fine.
What should I wear?
T-shirt, trainers and jogging bottoms are suitable attire. I find ‘kung fu slippers’ or plimsoles do not offer enough protection if somebody steps on your foot, so and are best avoided.
What style of Tai Chi do you teach?
We teach the ‘old Yang’ style of Tai Chi, passed on from Yang Jian-Hou
