 TAI CHI CHUAN CLASSES

Pay weekly only when you attend £6 day £7 eve 


BEGINNER LEVEL 1:

Introduction to Tai Chi principles and learning first half of the Chen 18 movement form

Connaught (Alderwood Senior School GU12 4AS) Thursdays 6.30pm 

THIS CLASS  IS NOW ENROLLING FOR SEPTEMBER 2017

This New Beginners Tai Chi Chuan class requires regular weekly attendance and practice at home to recondition the body and memorise the movements. This class is based on a traditional way of learning tai chi as a martial art it is slow, repetitive and strengthening. Effort and will are required (and developed) Therefore it is more suited to new beginners who are in good physical health, without joint problems  and have time to commit to learning a new skill.  It is not a '6 week' or '6 month' type of 'course' Anyone offering these is not offering a real Art.  I started learning 10 years ago and continue to develop my Tai Chi by studying 10 hours a month with my own teacher. Please don't apply if you are not willing to commit the regular time and effort as places are limited. Students who start this class may go on to train with my Teacher, Master Wang Hai Jun (Google him!)

What do the class levels mean?
 

The levels apply mainly to our Chen Tai Chi classes where a traditional curriculum is followed, with groups progressing from one level to the next, depending on how regularly members attend and how much practice they do at home. They are a way of indicating to new joiners and existing students where they are in within the curriculum and what other classes might also suit them. You can attend classes at your own level and any level below your own, provided that class has space for you.
