Tai Chi for Beginners

Originally one of the ancient Chinese martial arts, Tai Chi is practiced today primarily as a method of exercise that cultivates physical and mental harmony in movement. Its slow, fluid forms—based on the Chinese principle of yin and yang—and its emphasis on relaxed, effortless movement make it ideal for people of all ages. You will learn the first section of the traditional yang-style of long-form Tai Chi. Wear loose, comfortable clothes and soft, flat shoes. Instructor:Cho Li

Jim has been teaching the Introduction to Tai Chi Chuan at the Center since 1987. He is a senior student of Tai Chun Pan, who learned Old Frame Yang style Tai Chi Chuan from Grand Master Hsiung Yang Ho. Old Frame Yang preserved the rarely-found San Shou, sword, saber and staff forms, in addition to the more commonly known basic form and push hands. He coordinates the other students of Tai Chun Pan who teach at the Center.
