Tai chi and the martial arts.
One of the main things that people always say to me is that they just don't have time,

the modern-day short form of tai chi allows anyone who has a

tight schedule to enjoy the benefits and practice of great art.

There are many styles of tai chi and we teach a mixture of yang and chen style,

most of them start with a series movements from the forms in short routines.

It can take a few months for the benefits

to start taking place but its all worth the hard work.


When enjoying yourself this way you are more likely to stick at it

and feel the benefit with something thats good for you and fun.


Practical TaiChi Self Defence
The self defence applications are very easy to learn

as long as you practice your tai chi form

Because your understanding when shown the practical application

from standard move will be quick and easy.
(This is only taught to those wishing to know this side of the art form)

Pushing hands & Da Lu
This is a two-person exercise

where you will learn to sense the other person's actions

and in turn they will react against your action.

(This is only taught to those wishing to know this side of the art form)


Martial Arts Weapons and Practical Applications
"Only taught to those wishing to learn"

Single fan and double fan are the first weapons I like teach,

then I would teach you the single sword which is called the gim

And then Iíll progress you on to the broad sword -

then the monkey stick & Bo Staff.  


The Tiger & Dragon with Groath Ying-Yang

In China the Tiger is related to immense strength & responsiveness

which powers the liver - muscles,

the Dragon who has the ability to fly, gives you strong lungs,

Together greate a powerfull force

thats why they are joined by the tails to give balance.

The Ying-Yang is showing earth colours

with theBamboo branches of new life to give strength in all we do
