Taijiquan (or Tai Chi as it is commonly known) has a historical tradition for
the development of good health, the balancing of the body’s structure and
its function. Some of the benefits have been recorded as follows :
Peace of Mind
Promotes Improved Breathing
Taijiquan is enjoyed rapid growth throughout Great Britain and indeed throughout the world. This unique oriental martial art has been developing over many centuries. Taijiquan can be reviewed in the wider context of Traditional Chinese Medicine, the Meridian system of acupuncture, Taoist Philosophy, psychology, breathing practices, meditation and health science. Many teachers and practitioners see their training as a holistic system of self-cultivation. From the foregoing it can be seen that Longfei Taijiquan Association has a rich traditional heritage and the training can take a student from novice practitioner to a high level of accomplishment to embrace all aspects of the art.
We teach Yang, Sun and Chen style forms and weapons, push hands. Internal styles like Xingyi, Bagua and Qigong are also taught
To facilitate learning, information texts are available with videos and books.
