If you had asked me a few months ago what I was most looking forward to my answer would have been "the end of this long, cold, unforgiving,  winter." But things change and we have even experienced some warm sunny weather this week.  Winter now seems a long way past.

We cannot always depend on the weather to bring us joy.  We also cannot expect others to make us happy.  What is it that keeps you going when life just seems so difficult?  For me having a positive outlook is essential.  And secondly getting good well-rounded exercise.

At Chinatown Tai Chi Center we offer a very full experience in Tai Chi Chuan (Yang Style) both empty hand and weapons forms.  We also teach Chi Kung.  

And because we have gained some students in the last years who come with their own martial training in other arts we have included some of that training in our curriculum as well.

Training should be fun and enjoyable as well as a good workout.






Tai Chi Chuan is an ancient Chinese Martial Art that is well known for its superior health benefits and high level of effectiveness in combat. Tai Chi forms, which are performed in a slow and relaxed manner, calm the mind and release the mental and physical tensions of our modern, stressful lifestyle. Our school is directly descended from the originator of Yang Style Tai Chi through his grandson Yang Cheng-Fu.

If you call in advance, we can answer any questions you may have before you come to your first class. Of course, you can always just show up to watch a class. Everyone is welcome.

Student Creed

I intend to develop myself in a positive manner and avoid anything that would reduce my mental growth or my physical health.
I intend to develop self-discipline and respect in order to bring out the best in myself and others.
I intend to participate in class consistently, practice what I learn constructively and defensively to help myself and others, and never be abusive or offensive.

Yield and overcome,
Bend and be straight,
Empty and be full,
Wear out and be new,
Have little and gain,
Have much and be confused.
