Chen Style Tai Chi, is a martial art and is the oldest and original form of Tai Chi. It is believed to originate in the 13th Century in Henan Province but documented proof only starts in the 17th Century. Tai Chi is characterised by it's slow, elegant, unbroken movements. These are gentle on the joints and muscles. Through the gentle moves of Tai Chi, a practitioner can exercise without damaging their joints. By moving gently we can improve mobility. Our classes also incorporate weapons training in the stick and sword.
Chen Style Tai Chi combines slow movements with sudden explosive strikes and kicks. Students start with easy modified versions and build up to more advanced versions when they are ready. We also teach self defence Kung Fu including various seize and control applications.
