tai-ji-quan-sparring-1Genuine Taijiquan is not gentle physical exercise;

It is a complete, internal martial art.




Many have seen the smooth, harmonious and beautiful Tai Chi movements in practice.

However, few may be aware that Tai Chi - originally named Taijiquan - is in fact an effective traditional martial art, and a complete art for health, well-being and personal development.

Even more rare is to have first-hand experience of these benefits through genuine Taijiquan training.

Our Taijiquan beginners course aims for this very purpose: At this course, participants will experience training Taijiquan as a martial art, and its effectiveness as a holistic method for health and balanced living.

The course is suitable for adults of all ages, but participants must be reasonably healthy for daily physical exercise.


The beginners course is Guaranteed for Satisfaction: If you are not 100% satisfied with the course or your results, we will pay back your entire course fee without questions
