Tai Chi Chuan is a Chinese martial art, promoting health, mental welfare and stability, as well as physical strength, coordination and martial skill. Forms and breathing excercises are practiced to give students an understanding of body mechanics and relaxation. Additionally self-defense applications of the form are taught, both to advance martial skill as well as understanding of the form itself. The University of York Tai Chi Chuan Club gives anyone at any level the opportunity to learn and train in the art of Tai Chi Chuan. We train in the Derwent Squash Courts on Saturdays 9.00-11.00 am with our primary instructor, Colin Hamilton, and on Wednesdays 8-10 pm in the Derwent Squash Courts with our senior students. For new students the first two sessions are free.
Our term time sessions are held on Wednesdays between 20:00-22:00 and Saturdays between 9:00-11:00 in the Derwent Squash Courts.
