Tai Chi Classes

The Yang Style short form developed by Cheng Man-ching is comprised of 37 postures. The Beginning Class teaches postures 1 through 18 in the First Section, and 19-37 in the Second Section. Once the First Section becomes natural and familiar, you will be ready to study the Second Section.

Advanced Classes

Once you have learned and are comfortable with the full form, you are ready for Advanced Classes. Form Correction is the first stage in advanced study. Sensing Hands and weapons forms are advanced areas of study available for students who demonstrate achievement in the form and principles of Tai Chi.

No advanced classes are available through Tai Chi KC at this time. If you know the complete form, contact Kim Kanzelberger with Center States Tai Chi Chuan for information about advanced study opportunities.

It is important that students adopt a patient and consistent attitude towards their Tai Chi Chuan studies. The form trains both mind and body, much like studying a musical instrument; classes are like lessons where information is imparted, and students are responsible for daily practice. Everyone progresses at a different rate, but consistent study and practice will yield the best results. Many students repeat either or both beginner sections more than once. It is far more critical to develop and maintain a deep foundation than to rise quickly through all levels of study.
