Tai Chi Ealing classes are highly promoted for its health benefits, often it’s called meditation in motion.
In deeper levels of Tai Chi, every movement of the sequence has a meaning, a proper alignment of the body, a pattern of breathing and an intention of the mind.
Learning and understanding the purpose behind each movement become more and more important as a student progresses into deeper, more advanced stages of training. At advanced levels, Tai Chi also becomes a complete martial arts system. Tai Chi exercise can explain how to control your entire body, power and mental capabilities to a level you’ve never experienced before.

Tai Chi Yang style
There are many different styles of Tai Chi. In YMAA you learn the traditional Yang Style of Tai Chi Chuan, which has 113 (or 108) forms.
In the early 1800’s, the founder of Tai Chi Yang style, Yang, Luchan (楊露禪), went from Hebei province to the Chen family village in Henan province to study Tai Chi Chuan with Chen, Changxing (陳長興). It is well-known that he was a servant in the household for three years, only allowed to study basic stances (盤單架), sequences, fighting set, pushing hands and power manifestation (發功). After three years, when Chen had seen for certain that Yang Luchan would work hard without complaint and had natural talent, he allowed Yang to stay another three years and fully reach the essence of Chen style Tai Chi Chuan. He returned to Hebei, and participated in a national competition which took place in Beijing. He defeated all of the experts in the country, thereby obtaining his reputation as “Yang, the invincible.”
Tai Chi Ball Qigong training is an important component of proper Tai Chi Chuan practice. For martial artists, Tai Chi Ball Qigong training can strengthen the torso, condition the muscles, and increase physical power by using the mind to lead the qi. It can be a major training tool to enhance pushing hands ability.
For general exercise, Tai Chi Ball Qigong training helps those who might overly focus on ‘core body exercises’ to strengthen their hips, knees, and ankles. You will improve movement of the spine, increase energy through various breathing techniques, and learn to move many joints properly at different angles. Read more about Tai Chi Ball
I have been training with YMAA for about 9 months and have found my skills and knowledge of Tai Chi have really deepened. The more I improve, the more I appreciate how much there is still to learn. I discover something new with every training session and this – along with a varied syllabus that encompasses form, qi gong, applications, pushing hands and more – means that I am always challenged, motivated and inspired. Zibi is a skilled and friendly instructor with many dedicated students. All in all, I highly recommend this school.
I started Tai Chi Ealing classes with Zibi in October 2013 after practising with a different school for a few years. The class has a well designed structure and you are certain to learn something new every time. The atmosphere is great and the exercises are varied and fun, from Tai Chi Ball to Pushing Hands, martial applications and Fa Jing. Zibi is very generous with his knowledge and explains any question with clarity and a deep understanding. He is a dedicated, talented and passionate teacher who obviously loves what he does and I am very happy to be one of his students.
Training with Zibi has, I feel, improved my previous martial arts training. This fantastic school is ideal for beginners or practising martial artists who wish to understand their art at a deeper level. The more you dig the deeper you go.
Yang’s Martial Arts Association was established in Boston, MA in 1982. With the intent of preserving traditional Chinese Kung Fu and Qigong , Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming began training students in the rigors of Shaolin Long Fist and White Crane Gongfu as well as Yang Style Tai Chi Chuan. Dr. Yang also undertook his life-long dream of teaching and researching the Chinese arts and introducing them to the West through many books, videos and DVDs.
