The martial art of taijiquan is taught in a logical, structured manner.
Students work on material best suited to their ability level.
They study what is necessary and appropriate.
There are six grades in our taijiquan syllabus:
Beginner (tai chi for health)
Progress is contingent upon
Without long practice one cannot suddenly
Within each defined grade students proceed at their own pace.
Clear differences in ability become apparent.
Scheme of work
Students must be taught material that is appropriate to ability.
Instead of leaping into acquiring combat skills they must first learn how to move differently, to think differently.
This takes time, and is a different journey for each individual.
All students commence training studying tai chi for health.
A student only moves from the tai chi for health training onto taijiquan once they have passed the intermediate (1) grade.
They would be a lot better off
doing a lot less movements and extracting more quality out of them than to
continue doing a lot of movements and having minimum or no quality within
