Tai Chi is a soft and gentle form of exercise suitable for all ages. The initial attraction of Tai Chi practice may lie in the beauty and grace of its movements. It can also be continued into quite an advanced age without danger. Tai Chi has many health benefits because through the use of slow and soft movement the body is relaxed and free from stress. Tai chi is taught in these classes with much emphasis on posture and balance. It is largely non-contact but the martial defence elements behind every movement are explained to help with their learning.

Tony Jones offers classes in Tai Chi - Yang Style Short Hand Form suitable for both beginners and experts, and also extra lessons and workshops for Chen Style Fan Form (as taught by Masters Eva and Karel Koskuba), Sword Form and Stick Form.

Classes normally run during the Oxfordshire schools' term-time in Abingdon, Faringdon, and Wantage. You are welcome to join at anytime during a term. Click here for more information about the Classes.

All classes in Tai Chi start with an element of warm-up exercises (Chi Kung) and the advanced classes may include some push hands practice (Tui Shou & Da Lu). Click here for more information about these Classical Exercises.

Tony Jones is a member of the Chinese Internal Arts Association and the British Council for Chinese Martial Arts. He learnt judo in his youth and progressed through various external martial arts including Kung Fu and Karate before discovering his true vocation with Tai Chi.
