We practice the Yang style short form of T’ai Chi, developed by Professor Cheng Man-Ch’ing. The Professor was a man of many talents. In addition to his skills in T’ai Chi, he was a renown doctor of traditional Chinese medicine, practiced poetry, painting and calligraphy. In 1949, after the revolution in China, he moved to Taiwan and became a member of the assembly.
Tai Chi is a Chinese martial art that helps to improve balance, flexibility, circulation, relaxation and strength. We start class with the practice of the 37 posture form. As students advance, they are introduced to a partner practice called “push hands” that fosters sensitivity, timing and internal power.
Bob Noha studied with the professor in the early 70s and has been a practitioner of the art for over 40 years.
Class is held Saturday mornings from 10:15 to 11:15 and is open to all levels from beginner to advanced students. T’ai Chi is $40 per month by itself. If you are an Aikido student then this class is included in your $80 dues.
