The magazines been posted on the new dedicated magazine website, have you clicked on and read it yet? Visit http://taichimag.org and click the cover image of the issue you want to read. More issues will be added over time. Please note, the site is http not https so some browsers flag a safety warning; it is nothing to worry about as the site doesn’t collect personal details and doesn’t sell anything, it’s just google tightening up. We will be moving server as the magazine project develops.
Tai Chi for health related research project
Are you, or do you know a PHD student in a position to consider a Tai Chi for health related research project?

Note regarding Trademarking
The Chinese State continues to support and promote China’s modern ‘Global Brand’ of simplified qigong. TCUGB has agreed to be much more vigilant in future regarding any potential attempts to control the use of what we might consider to be generic and descriptive terms in the U.K. To this end we will be using a specialist computerised search service to watch out for certain terms appearing in new Trade Mark Applications in the U.K. for the latest update see Trademark Update
As the world continues to unlock, it is clear that many of us will be training using a mix of ‘live online’ and ‘face-to-face’. The technology developed massively over the last 18 months and actually was shown to increase the number of sessions per week attended. I am enjoying the opportunity to share and practice more; maybe you can share your stories for the next newsletter issue.

The newsletter was sent to all instructors and is available online: The Members November Newsletter
All members will shortly be receiving an e-newsletter via mailchimp to give more details of some of the work going on behind the scenes during these difficult COVID times.
We’ve also had a chance to review members listings and note that a number of websites no longer exist, or are maybe not as relevant anymore. Plus a number of members have no grading shown, and a number shown as beginner are maybe due an upgrade.
One key change is we’re separating the listings into membership types of ‘whole art – heath & martial’ and ‘health only’ inline with our membership options. This will help when searching for classes and teachers.
