Welcome to the London School of T'ai Chi Chuan and Traditional Health Resources. We have been teaching in London for more than 30 years. On our site you will find information about our T'ai Chi classes, our school and T'ai Chi in general.
T'ai Chi for Beginners: B1, B2, B3
The Beginning level of the form is taught in thirds (B1, B2, B3). Each third takes 10 hours to learn.
B1, the first third of the form
The B1 course is taught over one term in two formats:
- 10 one-hour weekly sessions
- 5 two-hour sessions, with a 30-minute pause for rest midway with optional relaxation exercises.
Once you learn B1 it is worth practising in its own right. B2 and B3 then complete your learning of the T'ai Chi form, each taught in 10 hours study over two more terms. This may seem a long time to learn the form. With nearly 40 years teaching experience, we find this method gives our students a much stronger foundation in the form. Our curriculum helps you to truly understand the form and the benefits you can achieve practising Prof. Cheng Man-Ch'ing's form of T'ai Chi.

How We Teach
We teach in teams.
This distinctive system is unique to our school and gives our students a teaching format that is clear and easy to learn. Our method of team teaching ensures that while you may have different teachers, they all use the same method to teach and explain the form. This makes the task of learning easy for the student.
