Learn the Principles, Concepts and Terms behind the art


Understanding the words used and the meaning behind them ...

There is nothing worse that walking into a class, trying your best, but not understanding what the instructor is describing or talking about! 

Tai chi practice is full of terms and ideas that are rarely clearly defined and even more rarely explained to new students! That is why we have a comprehensive introduction section where there are an array of short and easy to understand explanations for the most common terms and concepts in Tai Chi.


From the principles behind the forces, to the anatomy of how we use the body to create them ...

Why do we move the way we do in Tai Chi? How do we create the movements and the types or qualities of movements inside them? These are vital questions that require clear answers! Tai Chi is NOT just waving our hands around in the air. It is much more.
