Form - Function - Philosophy

Our Philosophy

Though we train as martial artist, we are not a school of fighters, but rather, individuals developing confidence and skill to resolve daily situations in a harmonious way.

We study the 37 posture Yang short form as developed by Professor Cheng Man-ching, disciple of grandmaster Yang Chen Fu, grandson of Yang Lu Chan the founder of the Yang style of T'ai Chi Ch'uan

Martial Art

Traditional T'ai Chi Ch'uan martial art, like any martial art, is a systematization of combative physical skills, principles, and strategies. T'ai Chi Ch'uan uses the principles of Yin Yang to create a martial style like no other. Governed by a set of specific principles that enables the practitioner to overcome strength with softness and return the attack if so chosen with amazing force, or to simply neutralize the incoming force into nothingness.

T'ai Chi Ch'uan promotes a healthy body, mind, and spirit. The practice of T'ai Chi Ch'uan has been called "medication in motion" by the Harvard Health Publications from Harvard Medical School.

T'ai Chi Ch'uan improves balance and reflexes, strengthens your core, legs, and the smaller stabilizer muscles within the body. It increases blood oxygenation, flexibility, and promotes a calm relaxed state of mind long after doing the form.
