Cultural classes

We offer a varied programme of cultural classes including our Tai Chi, Wushu, and Chinese calligraphy and painting.

Tai Chi

Tai Chi is a Chinese martial art practised for both its health benefits and defence training which has its roots in Taoism. It combines profound principles, theories and martial art techniques. It is the cultivation of one's internal energy, mind and the physical body that makes it so unique and challenging.

Wushu

Wushu, or Kongfu, was a system of codified practices and traditions of training for combat. Today, it is done for various reasons including combat skills; fitness; self-defence; sport; and building self-confidence.

Chinese calligraphy and painting

Chinese calligraphy, shū fǎ, is "the rules of writing Han characters". Chinese painting is known today as "guó huà". They emphasize motion and are charged with a dynamic life. As the oldest continuous artistic traditions in the world, calligraphy and painting today are known and learned as important parts of traditional Chinese culture.

A ten-week practical workshop provides you with an opportunity to know something about Chinese calligraphy and painting and the time to practice, with guidance from practitioners.

These classes are not currently running. We will resume them when we are able.
