David John Price - Launceston, Cornwall Region: South & West

Keanna Hills Tai Chi & Shibashi Qigong

Classes: South Petherwin Village Hall Every Monday 15.45 - 17.00 and 18.15 - 1945

Style taught: Simplified Yang Version (Beijing Style) 8,16 & 24 step tai chi Qigong Shibashi sets 1 & 2

'Everyone practicing tai chi is enjoined to embody natural law in their movements in accordance with the constantly changing balance between yin and yang. It may take time, practice, concentration and self belief, but the reward is true harmony of body and mind, with the achievement of central equilibrium.' - which is the essence of tai chi.

I have studied tai chi yang style for the last 10 years.
I have previously had a long association with other 'traditional martial arts' grading to a 1st dan Black belt in 1976 (Shukokai) under Sensei Des Botes (5th dan) and then to 2nd dan several years later. I have also studied Aikido and Japanese archery (Kyudo) .

My passion now is tai chi & qigong.
We are current holding classes in South Petherwin - Launceston every Monday.

Before looking for a teacher think about why you are attracted to tai chi, and what you hope to gain from it, are you just looking for the health aspects, working with soft exercises, meditation and relaxation techniques or are you interested in the full system including hard training, partner work, self defence and weapon forms.

Once you have decided what you want then you can email or telephone a few instructors close to you with your ideas, they’ll be pleased to advise you. Feel free to ask if you can visit a class to see how the class is run and whether the approach meets your expectations.

We have introduced a grading system as this gives people some indication of the level of experience of the teachers. Do not feel that you must train with a Senior Instructor as any of the teachers will have a better knowledge and understanding of the art than a beginner, and will be able to start you on the long road that is Tai Chi Chuan. So look for a local teacher who is providing the type of training you want!

Instructor Grades:

  • Senior Instructors (S)- normally will have at least 20 years experience of practising Chinese internal arts in depth
  • Advanced Instructors (A)- normally will have at least 8-10 years experience of practising Chinese internal arts in depth.
  • Intermediate Instructors (I)- practice Chinese internal arts to an acceptable level.
  • Basic Instructors (B)- are continuing their apprenticeship in Chinese internal arts and able to teach at a basic level; they will usually still be training on a regular basis with their own instructor.
Instructor Grades for those training in Tai Chi Chuan \and Chinese internal arts for health only:-
