Congratulations to our

and to

Jane Middleton and Monica Ludolf


 


who have achieved the 

Level 3 Advanced Certificate in Tai Chi Chuan


Just to set this in context: there are no belts in Tai Chi, but our Level 3 Certificate is equivalent to a black belt in other martial arts and it usually takes around ten years of regular training to achieve. Only a very small percentage of students ever reach this level.

Well done everyone!




We believe that:

"A school should exist not only to teach but also to investigate, not only to formulate prematurely a finalized system but to remain creative, to go on testing theories by applying them and by validating ideas by experience."

What Makes Us Different? 


For our full syllabus and more information about who we are and what we do, please go to about us, but here's a bit of an overview:

 

 

We take our martial arts seriously 

 

by training to international standards...

 

 

  

Our British and European Champion Tai Chi Fighters: Mike Abosch and and Ben Morris Winning Gold medals in Sweden, 2008.

 

 

 

 

 

across a range of Chinese Internal Martial Arts,

 

including Tai Chi, Bagua and Hsing Yi  

 

 

 

with authentic lineages

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our teacher, Master Zhu Guang of Beijing

 

 

 

and we also teach Qi Gong and Meditation

 

 

 

 

but we don't take ourselves too seriously!



 

 

 

 Awesome trainer of said 

 experts and champions:

 Colin Hamilton

 

 

"Does my Bagua look better in these sunglasses?"

 

 

 

 

You can learn how to protect yourself...

 

 

 

 

 

Ben Morris and Mike Abosch - more gold between them than Fort Knox

 

 

"Don't take it so personally, grasshopper!  You'll have lots of gold medals yourself one day!"

 

 

 

 



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Silver medalist fighter, Amanda Halliday, (also with friend/worthy opponent).

 

 

 

"Who is this young lady with

the devastating uppercut?" 

 

 

 

 

 

 

or just have a great time...

 

 

 

learning cool moves to keep you fit and healthy...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

as taught by experienced, qualified instructors...

 

 

 

 

while spending lots of time chillin' in parks

 

 

and gardens...

 

 

 

and looking deeply into things...

 

 

 

 

 

 

from the mysteries of the mind...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

to the fabric of reality!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 ...though we are particularly famous for our down-to-earth, non-pink-and-fluffy,

no BS approach...

 

 

...while also, of course, miraculously  manipulating our mandatory mysterious energies.

 

 

 

In general, we're a friendly bunch...

 

 

who will provide a warm welcome...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

and make you feel

part of the family :)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

...whatever your age, gender or other uniquely personal attributes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So please feel free to come along to our classes

or just explore the vast amount of information

and learning resources we have provided for you

on our websites.
