  The purpose of our study is to improve our health, coordination, strength, and centering. We practice the arts to understand the principles, the philosophy, and how to incorporate them into our daily lives.

Beginners and all levels are welcome.
You are encouraged to progress at your own rate.
Practice and learning should be fun.

Relaxation of body and calmness of mind is our primary goal. Learning how to move naturally, relaxed, efficient, and strong.
Centeredness is our next priority. All movements being stable and secure, understanding how we can move safely and efficiently.
Coordination is what these forms and movements are all about (body, mind, energy, spirit). The various movements teach and refine total body coordination so when we move we can apply our natural and unified strength easily and effortlessly. Function is a result of the above, which can be either for self-defense, merely working, playing, or gardening more efficiently. Studying these arts enable us to increase our understanding of deep relaxation and moving centered. 

Interested members are able to study the complete curriculum in the classical styles: exercise, energy work, solo forms, self-defense and weaponry with the opportunity to qualify for teaching certification in the art studied. Traditional methods of Qi Gong, Taiji Quan, Bagua Zhang and Xing-I Quan are taught, not the modern performance styles. We emphasizes some partner work to understand the purpose and function of the movements as a relaxation and self-defense tool but we donít emphasize fighting, tournaments, sport, or competition training.

 Our lineage represents the traditional method of Yang Taiji Quan from the Old Style Yang Taiji through Yang Shou Hou as taught by Grandmaster Tchoung Ta Tchen. We teach the Chen Taiji method of Chen Fake as taught by Madame Gao Fu from masters Tien Xiaochen and Feng Zhiqiang. Our Bagua Zhang is the tradition of Cheng Ting Hua from four different lineages. In addition we offer classes in Sun Taiji symmetrical form as well as symmetrical Wu Taiji Syle of Wu Chien-ch'uan. In the tradition of Master Tchoung Ta Tchen all forms (even weaponry) are taught symmetrically (right and left handed).

 Beginners can start anytime. In the park we often have people stopping and watching.
If you have any questions please feel free to approach and talk with us.
