Yang Style Tai Chi

Yang Style

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.
