Forms and Chi Gung

Welcome to taichi4u


Our speciality is being able to adapt a style of teaching most appropriate to you and the nature of the other students.
These groups often differ greatly, so we draw from a wide range of forms and practices:

Very exciting and new for 2020:

The Tai Chi Flute and White Monkey Staff Forms
(as taught to John Bolwell by Danny Connor in the early 1970s.)
Chen Tai Chi Ball Form.
Four-directions weapons forms: as taught by Dee and John on last year’s superb Summer School in the Lake District.

Other forms and sequences taught:
