We are a taijiquan school. There is a syllabus, lessons, teachers.
Learning is our focus.
Taijiquan cannot be taught in a haphazard way - a proven syllabus is essential.
What is different about your school?
We specialise in teaching taijiquan as a martial art.
I think Sifu Waller knows
more about functional biomechanics that 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.

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.
Who attends your school?
