West Midlands Chen Style Tai Chi School

The West Midlands Chen Style Tai Chi School has a unique approach to the teaching of Tai Chi. We follow a well defined and structutred syllabus which gently introduces the student to the principles on which Chen Style Tai Chi is based. Long complex forms are kept for experienced students, whilst beginners are taught the basics through a range of short forms which can be easily learnt and practised at home. This builds the confidence of the student who will be able to learn and perform the first routines within weeks. This is when the real work begins as the student then begins to apply the internal aspects of the art which distinguishes Tai Chi from other martial arts. The School is also unique in the way that weapons are introduced at the early stages of training. Although we are a school of Chen Tai Chi we also teach aspects of Yang Tai Chi and Wu Hao Tai Chi - both of which derive from Chen Style Tai Chi.

Chen Style Tai Chi is a wonderful way to keep fit and to encourage good health; it's also a style of Kung Fu and its martial applications are taught to those advanced students who would like to explore this aspect of the art.
