Phil Wright - Launceston Cornwall Region: South & West

North Cornwall Tai Chi Class & Tai Chi for Schools.

I am an advanced practitioner of Tai Chi & QiGong and been practising for 30 years. I teach Yang style Chen Man Ching based Short Form and Dr Chi Chiang Short form, Yang style Long Form, Straight sword, sword fencing and Push Hands as well as other partner exercises. I teach White Crane GiGong as well as other respected sets for standalone practice or to enhance Tai Chi. I also have created and run Tai Chi for Schools, bringing Tai Chi into Primary school curriculums. In addition, I teach seated Tai Chi in Care Homes. I specialise in one to one (or 2 to 1) bespoke lessons as well, for individual needs and requirements, including visitors to Cornwall.
Classes are in Launceston (and shortly Bude). Evening class is 7pm on a Tuesday night in St Mary's Church Hall; Sword form is 8pm and Push Hands class, 8.45pm. The Day class is 10am on a Wednesday morning, with a half hour Push Hands class at 11am. Everyone is welcome, from complete beginners to advanced practitioners and classes are informal.
Tai Chi for Schools brings Tai Chi into the Primary school curriculum. If you are interested, please contact me or see my website below.

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.

You can search the Tai Chi Union instructor database by the name of an instructor, club or town. Or Choose a region.

If you are an instructor who is not listed you can find out what you need to do.
