We are a friendly group that does Lishi, an ancient movement & exercise system that is Daoist and from China.  It gets you fitter, healthier, more focused, relaxed and also energised.  And you might find you smile more too!


Lishi is an ancient Daoist art and science which teaches the cultivation of Qi (the body's natural energy). You will be introduced to a range of exercises that make up Lishi. These include:


Daoist forms including the Square Yard, Flying Hands and sword and staff forms

Kai Men – a system of Daoist Yoga to open up the meridians

Dao Yin – breathing exercises for good health and energy cultivation

Qi Gong – learn how to use and direct your intrinsic energy

Feng Shou (Hand of the Wind) Kung Fu – a dynamic system of self-defence


You can watch these videos for a taster of some of what we do:
