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 (T'ai-chi Ch'uan) 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.
Come learn more at any one of the first three meetings of an evening class. If you decide to continue, tuition is $80/month, with discounts for couples, families, and college students. A new course starts each month and meets for 90 minutes each week for six months. After joining, you can immediately start attending the optional Sunday morning practice in the park, as well. You may also attend or flex-back to any monthly class that starts after your class.
After learning the slow form you can attend all available classes for the same monthly tuition, including advanced instructions in loosening, pliability, supple strength, and more, as well as self-defense implications, Push Hands, Taiji Sword, Taiji Falchion ("Big Knife"/Broadsword/Saber), Fast Taijiquan, and Teacher Training.
