Each month we hold a 2.5 hour workshop for those who really want to learn, improve & get to grips with all aspects of Chen style Tai Chi: Fansong Gong (loosening/conditioning exercises), Zhan Zhuang (standing meditation), Laojia (Form) and Pushing Hands/Martial applications (optional).
You are welcome to join us no matter what your current level of experience is, do however expect to work hard and a general level of fitness is a minimum requirement. We train together for common practise and divide into small groups for focused training and individual instruction.
Each workshop takes place 10.30 -13.00 at The Newell Centre, Tozer Way, Chichester, PO19 7LG. The venue is in the centre of Chichester & easy to get to (10 minute walk from the train station). For those of you travelling by car, parking is available at the front of the venue. Please bring your own refreshments - the venue has kitchen facilities. The fee for each workshop is £30.
Forthcoming workshops: July 20th, August 10th, September 21st, October 19th, November 16th (see below)

Internal Power and Pushing Hands
Saturday 16th November,10.00-13.00 at the Newell Centre. Fee: £40
Please book in advance
This workshop is suitable for students who have a reasonable level of experience.
All of the internal martial arts rely upon internal power for their functionality - without it 'forms' are empty and most of the benefits of these potent arts remain unrealised. Pushing hands comprises a wide variety of partner training drills that provide invaluable 'realtime' feedback into how we move, pay attention and use the internal power we should be cultivating in our solo practise. It is also the first step in realising Tai Chi as a martial art. Expect to work hard and sleep deeply that evening!
This workshop is a must for all students who wish to develop their practise beyond the superficial level.
