What is Tai Chi (Taijiquan)?

deyinsym_largeTaijiquan or Tai Chi Chuan is part of the traditional Chinese arts of keeping fit, self-defence and improving one’s physical and mental well being. It is usually known in the west as simply Tai Chi. Taiji means supreme, ultimate, quan (chuan) means martial arts.

Although it was initially developed as a martial art it is commonly practiced as a form of moving meditation. Many practitioners of tai chi use this technique to reduce stress, as well as to improve posture, balance, flexibility, and strength.

In addition, tai chi is said to boost mood, alleviate pain, strengthen the immune system, and improve heart health.

I have always been fascinated by all things Eastern; my love of Tai chi started as a young boy. Living in Bude, North Cornwall, exposure to Eastern things were a rarity and I wish that I could say it was a visiting Tai chi teacher, Buddhist monk or some other Martial master….but the honest truth: Really bad Kung fu films! I started studying Tai Chi and QiGong in my mid 20’s and along the journey have trained with some truly amazing people. Sixteen years later I am a Deyin instructor and qualified to teach Ba Duan Jin Qigong (8 Treasures), 8 Step Taijiquan (IWUF), 16 Step Taijiquan (IWUF) 24 Step Yang style (Beijing) & 16 Step Taiji Straight Sword.

Classes running in Kilkhampton, North Cornwall. One to one tuition is also available. Any questions, please feel free to contact me.
