Tai Chi Chuan
Tai Chi Chuan (Supreme Ultimate Fist) is rooted in ancient Taoist philosophy and has been practiced in several forms for thousands of years. Of these different forms, the Tai Chi Chuan Lee Form was developed by Ho-Hsieh Lee around 1,000 BC and Chee Soo (1919-1994) is credited with introducing this style to the west.
While Tai Chi Chuan is often seen as a slow set of soft movements, each of those movements and postures is actually a highly effective self-defense technique. Beyond self-defense applications, practicing the ancient art of Tai Chi Chuan has significant health benefits. The smooth, low impact movements will promote physical health by improving balance and strength, while the meditative benefits result from an internal focus and self-centering.
Antonio Castro, PhD (Sifu Tony), who has practiced Tai Chi Chuan Lee Style for over twenty years in pursuit of the scholar-warrior way, leads the program for those interested in learning more about this ancient art. The class includes an introduction to the Lee Style Form and the key physical (and philosophical) concepts, as well as instruction on applying these movements and postures in self-defense.
We are a community of people all interested in growth and helping each other reach goals and improve our lives. No experience needed, just an interest in self-development.
