Tai Chi CHuan (Taijiquan)

Tai Chi is proven to improve health, circulation and balance it also promotes good energy (chi) flow and inner harmony.

Qi Gong (Chi Gung)

Qi Gong is the ancient practice of breathing work (energy "chi" work) that has been used for health and wellbeing of the monks fro over 1500 years. Qi Gong can be used for calming the body, mind and meditation. Alternatively, it is used for energising the body in preparation for conflict situations without the side effects of narrow-minding and poor decision-making that come from the "fight or flight" response.

It is an amazing self-defence tool whether defending a physical assault or handling a hostile board room.  We teach both Yin and Yang applications of Qi Gong.

Yang = The "hard" version energises and condenses muscles (used in iron-shirt training)

Yin = The "soft" version calming breathing used for relief from stress and managing anxiety., 

No prior martial arts experience is necessary!
