What we're about

The Taijiquan Tutelage, founded in 1973 by the late Wu Ta-yeh and Wu Teng Shu-hsien, teaches the complete series of the traditional Yang Style Taijiquan Slow Form as published by Yang Cheng-fu in 1931. "Taijiquan" is the spelling of T'ai-chi Ch'uan in the Pinyin system adopted in mainland China and on Taiwan.

Concrete and refined methods are used to teach the complete form in six months. The special characteristics of true Taijiquan are a tranquil mind and loosened joints, which allow the application of integrated supple strength, directed by the waist and spiraled to the lower and upper limbs, as well as continuation of internal energy (qi, ch'i) from movement-to-movement without interruption.

Attend one class to see if you like it. If you decide to continue you can sign up to learn, in six months, the complete series of the traditional Yang Style Taijiquan (T'ai-chi Ch'uan) Slow Form as published by Yang Cheng-fu in 1931. You will learn all of the basic ingredients and internal biofeedback for continuous improvement.

Tuition is $80/month, with discounts for couples, families, and college students. After learning the slow form you can move on at the same monthly tuition to intermediate/advanced instruction in movement, self-defense implications, push hands, swords, fast forms, and more.
