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 you are the same.

"I love the idea of using my body to function as a unified unit which is what Tai Chi allows me. It stretches my physical 'me' but does not leave me feeling exhausted. And after a Tai Chi class I am refreshed. Including Chi-Kung moves and meditation techniques. Thank you Robert for your humorous quotes !!"
- Siew-Peng Crevel
"Tai-Chi classes are fun, graceful, informative, calming but invigorating at the same time - without any pain! We are so lucky to have Robert and Lee in the area."
- Linda Watts
