Training for a full month will also give you the option of looking into the various weapon forms which splinter of from the basic form.
3 Months Form / Qi Gong / Meditation / Weapon / Competition
Learning for a full 3 months at the school will set you fully on your life long journey into Tai Chi. Being able to devote yourself to the discipline for such a period will give you all the knowledge you need to continue your own personal training outside of the school with confidence, since your core knowledge of the form will now be good enough to improve naturally and able to look at other forms with a solid understanding of its origins. The course offers a full 60 days of tuition and includes 24 days of rest and holiday, giving you the opportunity to explore other parts of China to learn more about the culture that developed Tai Chi into its current form. By the end of your course you will have a full and rounded understanding of the full Chen-18 and Chen-74 forms; you will have developed your meditation and qi-gong knowledge. Should you wish, you can also develop a weapons form. For those training during several months we also try and encourage entry in one of the many Tai Chi competitions to explore the various styles and forms presented there and to help push your form as well as build confidence.
We realize that one size does not fit all when it comes to learning. Your time constraints may mean you can only train for a few weeks, or you may want to commit for several months or even years. You may have personal goals you wish to achieve; you may already be more or less skilled in Tai Chi; you may want to combine your Tai Chi training with another activity, such as learning Chinese at one of the local language schools. We will be happy to accommodate you, and to organise a course that fits your own schedule and requirements, whilst helping you achieve your own personal targets and goals for what you wish to try and achieve. Please contact us directly to discuss possibilities and prices.
