TJC Foundation Course Dates 2020
Tai Ji Circle’s Foundation Chen Taiji training courses for Beginners, dates as follows. Course will be Face to Face in Venue where possible and also live on Zoom in Term Three.
By booking 8 classes and attending twice a week you get the maximum benefit. It is recommended to attend the Foundation course, and then continue attending the classes to gain a greater understanding of the practice and become thoroughly familiar with the movements. Tai Ji skill is slowly acquired through repetition of the basic movements and circular patterns.
