We teach an ancient, traditional form of Yang tai chi/taijiquan. Its great health benefits are proven and well known. We also offer other internal styles such as baguazhang and xingyiquan, as well as associated weapons forms.
The 128 form Tàijíquán set
The 128 form Tàijíquán set is the first to be learned. This is one of the oldest tai chi forms and has not been shortened or simplified. It contains all of the original martial moves. It forms the foundation for all subsequent training. This training allows for the correction and perfection of one’s stances and posture, which improves balance, leg strength, and circulation/breathing. Tai Chi/Taiji is often called walking meditation and has been known to improve blood pressure and other ailments all this in addition to training a defensive martial art! After the form has been learned, a student can learn other internal forms and styles, including weapons forms for the sword, the broadsword and the lance.
