Tai Chi is a Chinese Art which was developed several hundred years ago as an effective means of self protection. As the years passed it was noticed that the natural and gentle movements of Tai Chi had many health benefits.
Nowadays, Tai Chi is most often taught for health and fitness, however some people also want to learn the self defence aspects of the art so our sessions and curriculum are designed to allow people to learn just the health aspects if they want to, or both the health and martial aspects if they are interested.
Tai Chi is called by a variety of names including Tai Chi, Taiji, T'ai chi ch'üan, and Taijiquan. No matter what the name, the benefits and enjoyment it can bring to you are the same.
Tai Chi is suitable for people of any age. It can give you a wide range of benefits, some are general and some depend on your interest and personal practice.
