What is Tai Chi?
Tai Chi Chuan (supreme ultimate boxing as the Yang family refined it), appears as a slow moving series of postures (called "the form"), played by the body and limbs. The playing of the form is underpinned with mindful concentration and breath control.
What are the benefits of Tai Chi?
The practice of Tai Chi develops a calm mind, a supple body, (inc more flexible arteries) strengthed limbs and torso, with better balance. Though used primarily for stress relief and relaxation, the art works on many other levels. It has found a place in Chinese Traditional Medicine as it is believed that the Tai Chi postures affect beneficially, the organs and systems of the body, to maintain health and longevity. Tai Chi has become associated with Taoist philosophy and may become a basis for spiritual development. It is also a deceptively powerful martial art.
What Happens on a Tai Chi Class or Personal Training Session?
On our Tai Chi private lessons and classes beginners commence to learn the first section of the long Yang form and/or a contrasting qigong. They may go on the learn the entire sequence and the weapons forms (Sword, Staff and Saber).
Experienced students can then book private tuition to learn martial applications, the practice of push hands (a sort of compromised sparring based on sensitivity), Incoming advanced students can book one to one tuition and cherry pick the attributes and form they wish to work on. I specialise in martial application, alignment testing of the movements and power generation. Those who wish to push hands must license and insure with our Chinese Martial Arts Association and the Governing body. (£23.00 Annually)
Are there alternatives to Tai Chi?
Why not try our one of the systems under our "Breath Works" Qigong approach on a private lesons basis?

I was always rather taken by the remark
made by Cheng Man Ching and detailed in Robert Smith`s excellent book
Boxing - Masters and Methods. Smith asks Cheng why
the latter`s students do not approach his skill level in Tai Chi and Cheng
replies "No faith." I find it does require some faith to
leave behind the concentric contractile methods that underpin much of our physical activity.

I attended a seminar in Derby with "James" Fu Sheng Yuan (1931 – 2017) son of Fu Zhong Wen
(Yang Chen Fu's chief disciple)
This is how I remember training in the Park with Master Ou:
