About Tai Chi


Tai Chi – Tàijí, T’ai chi ch’uan or Tàijíquán – originates from Chinese martial arts and is practised for health and wellbeing, meditation, self-cultivation and self-defence.

As a mind-body practice, Tai Chi promotes relaxation and awareness, and improves mobility, posture, balance, co-ordination, strength and stamina. Research also suggests the practice of Tai Chi may help with a variety of health conditions.

As an internal martial art, Tai Chi  can be developed, refined and enjoyed over a lifetime. There are several main styles such as Yang, Chen and Wu, which are named after the families from which they originated. Our syllabus comes from a branch of Yang style, from Cheng Man-ch’ing, Huang Sheng Shyan and subsequent teachers.
