Tai Chi

Whenever possible, we seek to offer non-contact lessons in various forms of Tai Chi and Wushu. These are styles of traditional Chinese martial arts, which have become an integral part of popular Chinese culture.

Tai Chi is a Chinese martial art practiced for both its health benefits and defence training which has its roots in Taoism.
