Beginner Level Martial Arts Classes
Beginner Tai Chi Class
Our Beginner Tai Chi Class is an introduction to the Internal Arts and Meditation. Each Tai Chi class begins with meditation and the continuous chi kung postures. We then practice the 24 posture combined tai chi chuan. Afterwards we break into small groups and learn the fundamentals of this particular Tai Chi form including the fighting applications and push-hand training. Although Tai Chi is gentle enough for practitioners of any fitness level, the complexity and principles of the form can be a challenge for all athletes. There have been numerous studies on the benefits of Tai Chi and Meditation for all ages. Indeed you may find it essential for your health and longevity.
