Classical tai chi

Students explore the human body, physics, biomechanics, pragmatic martial skills and Taoist wisdom. The in-depth syllabus is comprehensive and thorough. You can study it at your own pace.
Modern teaching methods combine with traditional training approaches to provide a stimulating environment.


I think Sifu Waller knows more about functional biomechanics than all the orthopaedic surgeons I have met put together. I rarely have clicking joints now since Sifu Waller instructed me to work within the limits of the ‘click’ and then build up over time to a wider range.
