Classes – Book & Pay

Timetable & Bookings

We can no longer accept cash or drop-ins at our venues, and as numbers are limited all classes must be pre-booked and paid through our Bookwhen site (timetable, booking and payments). Masks may be worn in class as Covid-19 is still with us, but are not compulsory, please respect others choices and maintain a safe distance when training. Thank you.

Please book and pay for all your weekly Tai Ji Circle classes with Shifu Liu and Chris on Bookwhen, with an online or in-venue option, as a TJC member or non-member.

Annual TJC Membership is £100 for new students for the training year (January to December), and £70 for Renewal, also partial year membership is available. With TJC Membership you save cost on class fees and workshops.

On the Bookwhen Schedule timetable classes are listed as ‘In Venue’ or ‘Online’ please select accordingly. Book a Single Class or buy a Class Pass to save on fees.

Class Passes (8, 15 or 30 credits) you can book in all the classes you may want to take, or just a few at a time, and the system will know when you have used them up on your pass automatically. If you cannot make a class you can transfer it to another time or date, beforehand. If you wish to do classes ‘Online’ and ‘In Venue’ it is best to buy two different passes for each option as the passes are not interchangeable.

Please set up a Bookwhen account with an email and password, so that you can sign-in later to see all your bookings, classes and payments. Your email address is used to identify you when booking with a pass or class. An email reminder is sent out before your classes after payment, with the online Zoom link. With Online Class booking, click on the class online link to add it to your calendar. (Please email Chris if any problems)
