If only I had a little more time I think I'd like to learn Tai Chi Chuan.  I hear that a lot. So I ask "why do you want to learn tai chi chuan?" Usually, the answer is  " I want to reduce the stress in my life" or  "improve my flexibility", I want to improve my balance and learn to meditate"  or " I just want to use tai chi for relaxation"  and some even say "improve my health and for self-defense".  I myself practice tai chi for all of these reasons and more.   There is one more reason that I practice tai chi chuan and that reason is because it is fun.  I really have fun and get great enjoyment from my tai chi practice. 

So the invitation is open.  Come and find out what practicing tai chi is all about.  Questions are welcome.



Practice, Practice, Practice and Patience - Practice and Patience makes Perfect







Tai Chi Chuan is an ancient Chinese Martial Art that is well known for its superior health benefits and high level of effectiveness in combat. Tai Chi forms, which are performed in a slow and relaxed manner, calm the mind and release the mental and physical tensions of our modern, stressful lifestyle. Our school is directly descended from the originator of Yang Style Tai Chi through his grandson Yang Cheng-Fu.

Student Creed

I intend to develop myself in a positive manner and avoid anything that would reduce my mental growth or my physical health.
I intend to develop self-discipline and respect in order to bring out the best in myself and others.
I intend to participate in class consistently, practice what I learn constructively and defensively to help myself and others, and never be abusive or offensive.

Yield and overcome,
Bend and be straight,
Empty and be full,
Wear out and be new,
Have little and gain,
Have much and be confused.
