Taijiquan: "if we ask what is the use of this art, it rests on not using strength, and yet not fearing the strong. If someone with great strength comes to attack me, I rely on the greatest pliancy. That will be sufficient to prevail, for I just follow his tendency and take it from him." Yang, Chengfu, The Essense and Applications of Taijiquan
Qigong: "With the life-style changes of the last one hundred years, Qigong is more necessary today than ever before in its two thousand five hundred year history." Dr. Yang, Jwing Ming.
Whether you want a challenging, intense class or a relaxing, stress-relieving practice, we invite you to join us. You can either observe or try a beginner's class. We have no annual contracts required, just dedicated training. Just drop by or contact us.
We enroll new students at any time. You are always welcome to stop in to observe any of our regular classes. If you wish to take a trial class come 15 minutes before the scheduled start time, wear loose, comfortable clothing and flat, indoor shoes. The fee for trial classes in Taijiquan is $25 per class. Drop-in classes for Qigong are $18. Please note that some of the Wednesday evening Qigong classes are not suitable for drop-ins. Our Taijiquan program is traditional, comprehensive and challenging and requires a serious commitment to attendance. After the initial trial class or classes, drop-in attendance is not suitable for Taijiquan.
