Student Practice Sessions
Our students are so into their studies that they have origanised their own practice sessions, usually held every last Sunday of the month in the Downton Memorial Hall. A small contribution towards the rent is all that's asked for, and you are free to practise whichever discipline you choose. It is a chance to clarify those bits you are unsure of with other students, practise what you know, explore recently acquired skills and chat to Tai Chi friends over a cup of tea.

Five Section Taijiquan - Tai Chi for Traditional Study
5-section taijiquan (tie jee chuan) is a modern system created by world-renowned teacher Sam Masich, based on the popular Yang style. It is perfect for beginners wishing to discover the basics of traditional Tai Chi movement. More experienced students can also use the 5 section program to prepare for advanced traditional taijiquan training, since it is a comprehensive curriculum which includes solo and partner hand forms and weapons training.
Longwater Tai Chi begins teaching this exciting and fun introduction to Tai Chi in blocks of five weeks, each session lasting 1 hour. £32 per 5 week term, or £7.50 per session.
During the first term of the new class (10th Sept to 8th Oct) you will be able to pay by the session at the same discounted rate as the term fee, i.e. £6.40 per session. This is will make it more affordable for new students who decide the class is not for them within the first few weeks.
And... the first class is free!
