Tai Chi or Taiji is an intelligent movement system that trains the body and mind naturally and perceptively to produce excellent health, fitness and well-being. With its ancient roots it continues to be one of the most effective and successful health systems known today.


The birthplace of Tai Chi is the Chen Village (Chenjiagou) deep in the heart of China where Tai Chi has been practised for hundreds of years. Tai Chi is practised by most people for its remarkable ability to improve movement, mindfulness, health and fitness. However, through dedicated training it can be developed as a superb means of self-defence which alongside superior health and fitness, comprises its original purpose.
