Tai Chi is a holistic approach to wellness (including mind, body, and spirit) and concentrates on relieving the physical effects of stress on the body and mind. The focus and calmness cultivated by the meditative aspect of Tai Chi has proven exceptional in maintaining optimum health (especially in the sense of relieving stress and maintaining homeostasis).
Researchers have found that Tai Chi practice shows favourable effects on the promotion of balance control, flexibility, and cardiovascular fitness.
About Yang Style Tai Chi Chaun
The birthplace of Yang Style Tai Chi Chuan is Hebei Province, Yongnian County. About 200 years ago, Yang LuChan went to Beijing to teach the Emperor’s Family. People would watch and wanted to learn from him. His movements were smooth, slow and even.
Yang Style is the most popular style of Tai Chi practiced around the world today. This is largely due to the Yang family teaching to the public and not keeping it private. It is also accessible for all ages and abilities due to the form having a more upright posture.
Martin began studying Tai Chi within the Yellow Dragon School of Kung Fu under the instruction of Sifu David Skates in 1990. Since then Martin has progressed within the Association, becoming Senior Instructor in 1998, having studied with many Tai Chi and Qiqong Masters.
Martin currently teaches the full Traditional Yang family Tai Chi Chuan curriculum (103 Hand form, Sword form, Sabre form & Push Hands). Martin is a member of the Yang Family Tai Chi Chuan Association (IYSTCCA) and the British Council for Chinese Martial Arts (BCCMA).
