Learning tai chi

The first step in learning tai chi with our school is to do the induction course. After the induction course, students join the school and attend weekly classes.

3 week induction course

New students undertake a 3 week course. It offers an introductory understanding of tai chi:

20 for the 3 week course
3 consecutive Monday classes
Explore new skills every week
Receive corrections, tips & pointers
One-to-one help throughout the course
The opportunity to ask questions

The Chinese exercise practice of tai chi can significantly boost the body's immune system response to virus infection.

When can you start the induction course?

There is normally an induction course every month. Just e-mail to book your sessions. We will send you a registration form and instructions for payment.

What is the induction course for?

The induction course is for people who are interested in practicing taijiquan, tai chi for health or tai chi for fitness with us on a regular basis.
These 3 introductory lessons prepare the student for the training ahead. It teaches basic skills and insights pertinent to our curriculum.

One-to-one tuition

The induction course is usually taught by Rachel or a teaching assistant. It is structured, straightforward, informative and logical. The more detailed aspects are taught one-to-one in order to improve comprehension.

Q & A

Students are welcome to ask questions about any of the topics being considered, the syllabus, the teachers and the school. The teaching assistant will endeavour to answer all questions as fully as possible.

Join the school...

After the induction course people join the school.

Further reading



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 simplified 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.
