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.
(Dr David Cousins)

Before I came to Sifu Waller three years ago I had spent six years at
four different classes trying to learn taijiquan. None of them had a
syllabus of any kind. Most were offering tuition of the
24 step, with no self defence and no regard for the health of knees or back.
The classes were for one hour only and
cost about the same as ours.
A good place to be
The main appeal of our school is the total break from everyday life. We offer vibrant, active classes; free from cliques and politics.
There is a pleasant, relaxed atmosphere of camaraderie and good humour. Enjoy an evening without pressure, the need to play a role or keep up appearances.
Who does tai chi?
Our students come from a diverse range of backgrounds. Tai chi appeals to all sorts of people.
We have many international students (e.g. from America, China, France, Germany, Greece, Iran, Nepal, Poland, Russia, Thailand...).
