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.
