The Tai Chi & Qigong Union for Great Britain (TCUGB) was founded in 1991 with the aim of representing every recognised style of Tai Chi Chuan, to improve and promote the art in all its aspects including health, meditation (mindfulness), personal and group development, and self-defense, and to provide a source of information on classes, etc. for the general public.

In recent years the TCUGB has opened the door to Qigong and other Internal Martial Art styles and has now grown to be the largest collective of independent Tai Chi Chuan and Qigong teachers in Great Britain with over 1000 instructor members, as well as many Associate members.
Membership is also open to international instructors, students, and those interested in the arts worldwide. Find out more at ‘Benefits of Membership’ or How to Join or contact us.

The TCUGB gives all members the opportunity to promote events and classes, and through the website assists the public in finding local experienced instructors. Our site pages include information about history and styles, useful links to organisations, news, events, and more. If there is further information that would be of help to you, please let us know so we can continue to be the most useful point of call for Tai Chi, Qigong, and Internal Martial Arts.
