Master Ding Academy (MDA) offers authentic, traditional Yang style Tai Chi Chuan classes. Beginners and experienced practitioners are all welcome at any of our clubs. To take part, no particular level of fitness is required.
We believe in developing a friendly, supportive learning environment in our classes and provide various social events and local workshops throughout the year.
We also welcome opportunities to work with community or corporate groups on an ad-hoc or long-term basis.
All instructors listed on this website are certified to teach by the Master Ding Academy and must renew their registration annually. In addition, they are required, in a programme of continuous development, to improve their skills and understanding of Traditional Yang Style Tai Chi Chuan through regular training with Master Ding.
