Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese practice and is sometimes referred to as a moving meditation. It can help with high blood pressure, and is a great way to practice relaxation techniques. Tai Chi helps improve balance and flexibility.

I have been teaching Tai Chi in the Taoist Tai Chi style since 2009, certified in set leading and beginner instruction.

I can teach you two Taoist sequences - the 18 movement as well as the 108 moves. I usually recommend new students learn the 18 moves first, get this memorized and then move into the 108 moves.

Your Tai Chi Journey begins with an understanding of your needs. There is no mystery or mysterious movements to Tai Chi Chuan. The lessons are science-based so you will enjoy learning this wonderful art which has changed my life and I'm sure it will change yours too. Once we've set some goals we'll begin with introductory training. Experienced or maybe not so much we will work together to help you reach your goals.

About Ron

To begin with let me say I am a martial arts instructor. I'm not a Yoga person, music teacher, actor or some other part timer and all of my reviews are from actual students who have taken classes with me in the martial arts and in various disciplines. American Tai Chi and Qi Gong Association Ce

I had been doing Tai Chi and Qigong for several years before I attended an Instructor Training weekend course with Ron and other members of International Tai Chi Alliance in March of 2020. There I discovered how little I actually understood about Tai Chi as a Martial Art. Just days later, COVID-19 made in-person training impossible. Ron and his business partner Master Linda Arksey, offered intensive online training seminars for instructors including courses on Medical Qigong, the 8 Extraordinary Meridians, the Yang 8 and Yang 10 Forms. Through this course work and teaching practice I gained a deep understanding of how and why Tai Chi and Qigong benefits one physically, mentally and emotionally. I have an autoimmune form of arthritis and it's not hyperbole to say this practice has changed my life. For almost a year, I've also been having weekly private lessons with Ron. He is an excellent instructor and he provides the support and guidance needed to improve my Tai Chi practice and my confidence as I lead my own classes. Ron is a first-rate instructor and I highly recommend training with ITCA.
Hajna
I am a physiotherapist and I work for NHS in England. I have been learning Tai chi for over 4 years and run classes for my patients and colleagues for 3 years. I am devoted to continuous professional development (CPD) in physiotherapy therefore I was looking for teachers and a school that represent the same principles and also have the students at heart. Ron and Linda are fantastic teachers and ITCA provides a supportive environment for the eager learners. I warmly recommend their weekend courses to build confidence in your own practice and teaching skills. Should you look for private lessons the experience won’t disappoint. Ron’s teaching is fun and refreshing and it also allows you to reflect on your own practice making the tai chi journey even more enjoyable and meaningful.
Ian
Since my involvement with Ron, my Tai Chi Chuan & Qigong have gone from strength to strength. The lessons are very relaxed, structured and fun at the same time. My understanding of the forms (including the martial application), my movement and breathing have all improved immensely. The biggest benefit for me is my health, confidence and own self esteem has also improved, leaving me inspired to help my own family and keep focused on self development on my Tai Chi Journey.
Ron is the ultimate professional , highly recommend.

Tai chi is "Meditation in motion". My personal experience of Tai Chi Chuan have two different ways training model. first Zen Fit, For the people who don't want spend a yearly time just focus on tai chi forms,Zen Fit base on Tai Chi Chuan,but easier,we only focus on few movements on the class,and you will still get what you look for such as improve balance,body coordinate ability,great option for beginner level.2,Tradition Tai Chi training,this type of training normal take a little long to get into the great Tai Chi experience,but for the time you spend,worth it,not only learn Tai Chi forms,you will also learn Tai chi skill,culture,such as Ying/Yang,some of people very into the Tai chi Culture,they enjoy to spend more time to learn tai chi,and this is the one you are looking for. Tai Chi for senior and for chair is also different between Tai Chi fit and Tradition Tai Chi.

I've been teaching Taichi and Qigong for 10 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of Taichi and Qigong. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to practice 8 forms of Taichi and Ba Duan Jin (8 Brocade Qi Gong) and as time goes on you'll be able to complete 24 forms and more. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

I learned 8 forms from Emily in two weeks last year. It was not too difficult. She explained every movement clearly and pointed out where I did wrong. She is a good Tai Chi instructor with many years of teaching experience, and I learned a lot from her. If you are a beginner, I highly recommend her class.
Claire
I have taken many Tai Chi classes from Emily and highly recommend her classes. She demonstrates a high level of understanding of Tai Chi practice and class participants are easily able to follow along in practice each week. Emily is dedicated to her practice and society will benefit greatly from her continued education and instruction in the art of Qigong Tai Chi. I highly recommend trying her Tai Chi class.
Wendy
I practiced Taichi with Emily during my school years from 2013 to 2015 in SDSU.

Her class was very attractive and interesting, she was super nice, helpful and patient with students. My immunity and balance improved a lot after training. I also find Taichi works for relieving stress and anxiety from studying, especially when before exams.

I am grateful to meet her and took her class, I encourage everyone who read this to give it a try.

I teach the Yang 108 form. My teacher, Cole McMullen, was taught according to the principles of the Chen Wei Ming school. In fact, I am part of the didactic lineage of Chen Wei Ming himself. Cole's teacher is the Tai Chi "grandson" of Chen Wei Ming, meaning he learned from a disciple of Chen Wei Ming.
