Taijiquan students wear:
• Black cotton crew-neck T-shirt
• Black cotton martial arts/karate trousers
• School badge sewn onto the T-shirt
• Flat footwear; preferably not training/sports shoes
Earn the right
To wear a black T-shirt must know all of the basic qigong exercises.
A taijiquan student
The student is getting fitter, learning the Long Yang form pattern and commencing more challenging training. Expect to be treated more earnestly.
The first 4 belts are introductory. They are for people who have an interest in taijiquan and want a mild taste of the art.
Teaching assistants wear a grey T-shirt.
Risk of transfer
Our insurance company states that tai chi students can only train material appropriate to their level of fitness and ability.
This means that the syllabus must take the student's condition into account at all times. Although this may sound restrictive, it is actually quite sensible and safety conscious.
Please do not ask for charity.
