 Those lazy days of summer are mostly over.  The weather is changing and it feels energizing.  Back at Macalester  the students are excited about learning Tai Chi.  It reminds me of all of the reasons that I love practicing Tai Chi Chuan.  As a very young person tai chi helped build my stamina.  Because of my tai chi practice  I relaxed more and did not feel so stressed by my busy schedule.  Over the years tai chi has become the stable practice that helps work out the physically tough times.  It continues to relieve the stress too.  Why practice Tai Chi Chuan?  Well I will tell you, because it feels so good.

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.
