Classes are friendly, groups are small and teaching is always person-centred – each according to their needs. Everyone can learn Tai Chi Chuan, which can alleviate many physical problems, especially those caused by stress and tension. It's a gentle form of exercise that slowly builds strength, stamina and flexibility. In addition, posture and balance start to improve from the earliest weeks of practice.
You are welcome to watch a class or, even better, try a taster session to experience why millions of people round the world love Tai Chi Chuan.
At MDA Headquaters, we runs regular six-week introductory courses and beginnners are welcome.
