CLASSES AND PRIVATE TUITION FOR ALL LEVELS
Tai Chi Chuan is an exceptional martial art and approach to well rounded health, originally designed by the Taoist hermits of ancient China. The art is designed to help practitioners to build a fit and health body, a calm and focussed mind as well as a first class knowledge of martial skills.
Training is based around 5 key areas of practice, with each area concentrating on developing key skills or abilities.
