WHAT IS TAI CHI?

WU'S TAI CHI ACADEMY 

Tai Chi Chuan is a sophisticated and supremely effective martial art.

The main objective of the art is to achieve good robust health and peace of mind,

while improving mental and physical efficiency and concentration.

Tai Chi is built around the ancient Chinese philosophy of Yin and Yang:

The harmony of complementary opposite forces in all things.

FLEXIBLE CLASSES

You can start a beginners' course at any time, taking any classes from the timetable that suit your schedule. Tai Chi is an art which has so much breadth and depth that you can continue learning and

improving for a lifetime. There is no pressure to “keep up” in our classes; every person

can learn and progress at their own pace.

WU FAMILY STYLE TRADITIONAL SYLLABUS

Wu Family Tai Chi Chuan has a very clear and direct lineage unlike many other traditional styles of Tai Chi,

which are often “tweaked” by individual teachers and therefore evolve over time into numerous variants.

The head of the International Wu Style Tai Chi Chuan Federation, Grandmaster Wu Kwong Yu,

is the great-great-grandson of the 19th-century founder Wu Chuan Yau,

whose son Wu Chien Chuan created the modern style which we practise.

At our Academy we follow a completely traditional syllabus designed and

periodically reviewed by the Grandmaster.
