Forest Hills Tai Chi Chuan


Classes Offered

Short Form

The 60 movement short form in the yang style as devised by Grandmaster William C.C. Chen will be taught. The emphasis is on learning the basic mechanics and relaxation. The short form is the first step to all other classes. Beginners classes will be held on Saturdays but beginners may also attend Sundays or Wednesdays with permission of the Instructor.

Form Corrections

Begin to work on the short form in more depth. In this class we will work on correcting the form, learning to coordinate breathing, relaxation and expanding spiral energies for maximum benefits. Also taught will be Chi Kung (energy work) exercises such as the Eight Silk Brocade exercises and the Swimming Dragon.

Advanced Tai Chi

This class will include aspects of form corrections, martial arts applications of the short form postures and an introduction to push hands, a two person exercise in balance and coordination.

San Shou (Boxing)

Boxing utilizes techniques of free fighting (sparring) with an emphasis on body mechanics. Participants must provide their own 16-oz boxing gloves and a mouthpiece for light contact. Knowledge of the short form and permission from the instructor is required.

Sword Form

The jian or double-edged sword is taught. Knowledge of the short form is required as is the purchase of a wooden practice sword.
