This class is suited for persons of all ages and ability. We do a series of traditional Chinese exercises to give the body a very thorough and gentle stretch.

The class starts with exercises to warm up and loosen the whole body, then a stretching routine to improve flexibility. Standing meditation postures with slow gentle movements are used to calm the mind and create a deep state of physical and mental relaxation and increase the flow of energy.
Tai Chi movement drills support students to learn the fundamental techniques essential to good practice. We then apply these to learning the Tai Chi Form. The long Form is broken down into smaller sections as each posture is described in intricate and precise detail. In time the movements become like flowing water. With more practice, students are taught how to include the powerful and explosive movements into the Form.
Very calming, soothing, balancing and centering for Body Mind Spirit.
Real Tai Chi training can be challenging and demanding, physically, mentally & emontionally.
6:30pm to 8:30pm (2hrs) - £13 Drop In or £45 Per Month
In the second class (1hr) (which students are welcome to join after they have achieved some fundamental skill from attendance in the first class) we practice the martial arts aspects of Tai Chi including the use of weapons.
Students will learn the Pao Chui Cannon Pounding Form, also called the Fighting Form. The emphasis is on fast and explosive Fajin movements that help teach and improve the self-defence/combat elements of Tai Chi.
Secondly we train in the use of martial arts weapons. We are currently working on the Tai Chi wooden Staff Form and its applications.
Anyone experiencing serious medical health issues or injuries are not recommended to do this class
due to its high level of physical and mental intensity.
WUDANG - INTERNAL KUNG FU
The original Zhang Sanfeng Internal System is working at the highest level of internal martial arts practice. This system is at the origin of all other internal systems and underlies other practices including Tai Chi, Ba Gua and Hsing-Yi. There are 12 main forms in this system. There are many types of training drills which, in turn, have 12 variations each. Training drills for fighting applications combine solo forms and working with partners. Weapons used include knives and sticks as well as the more traditional weapons such as swords and spears.
This is a private class - access requires attendance in any of my other classes. If you would like to try this class, please ask me about it.
