Yang Style Tai Chi

For those looking to practice taiji at a more active or recreational level the 5 section taijjiquan curriculum created by Master Sam Masich is ideal as it introduces the art in a principled way. If practitioners are eager for partner work they might play with the two person forms combined with sensing-hands and sensing-sword work. For those nervous about partner forms or who have had bad experiences with taiji push-hands, the jue-shou approach to connection and movement-through-relaxation can be perfect for breaking down barriers.

Classes and workshops run throughout the year, except on bank holidays and special times like Easter, August holidays and Christmas. Check our home page for the latest information on when we are not teaching.

Yang Style Workshop - Downton

Based on Yang style Tai Chi, these regular full day workshops allow us to teach both the external postures and applications as well as the internal energy components (Neigong) that make your Tai Chi reach the next level.

If you main interest is an active and robust activity that is both stimulating and enjoyable, and includes partner connection practices, then this style is for you. The workshop is divided into a morning session studying hand forms and afternoon session for sword/sabre forms.
