classes taijiquan self defence qigong tai chi for health about us reviews a-z
Although taijiquan (supreme ultimate fist) isn't a conventional martial art, it is still a style of kung fu, and kung fu literally means 'hard work'.
To train self defence, chin na, shuai jiao, taijiquan, weapons training or baguazhang you must fulfil the health and safety criteria presented by our insurance company.
It states that all students must be taught relative to ability/competence/health.
These six items are essential for martial arts training with our school:
No medical/health problems *
Age (over 18)
Good attitude & humour
Prepared to practice at home between classes
Not studying another martial art
* this includes
being notably overweight
Fitness & attitude
We reserve the right to decline martial tuition:
• if we feel that a student is physically unable to study taijiquan safely
• if an individual demonstrates the wrong attitude for taijiquan study
Insurance regulations prohibit a student from training material that is unsuitable for their fitness/ability level. Rachel will always act with the wellbeing of the student in mind.
If you’re looking for something
easy, then kung fu is probably not for you.
