About the club:

Tai Chi Chuan is an internal Chinese martial art that promotes health, concentration, and relaxation as well as physical strength, coordination, and martial skill. Various hand and weapon forms are practiced to understand the body mechanics. Moreover, every section of the forms have self-defence applications, which are later taught, both to advance martial skill and the understanding of the forms itself. This is accompanied by breathing exercises to cultivate a moving, meditative state that adds the essence to the art.

When sessions are held:

We give anyone at any level the opportunity to learn and train in the art of Tai Chi Chuan. We train in the Derwent Squash Courts on Saturdays 9.00-11.00 am with our primary instructor, Colin Hamilton, and on Wednesdays 8-10 pm in the Derwent Squash Courts with our senior students. For new students the first two sessions are free.

Why you should give it a go:

If you want to start exploring a martial art that is highly developed and complex yet relaxing, come along and you may feel the qi circulating!
