Tai Chi Sword - Chen style workshop

A full day, gently paced workshop to learn and improve on Chen style tai chi sword form and silk reeling with instructors Helena Kean & David Pelling of Lighthouse Tai Chi.

Silk reeling trains the body to quickly change direction while maintaining a smooth motion, creating a fluid, spiralling motion, increasing flexibility and joint strength.

The 49 step Chen Sword form is achievable at all levels or fitness and ability. The student can progress the difficulty of the moves over time and to suit their ability. The sword also helps to increase the physical strength and train the re-adjustments for balance and flexibility.

This workshop is good introduction to the form and will help develop the skills of the students who have done it before. Beginners to tai chi weapons are welcome.

Only £50 if booked before 15th June 2017 (£55 after this date)

Advanced booking only: No cash will be taken on the door

Price includes tea, coffee & biscuits - please bring a packed lunch.

Wooden training swords will be provided. You are welcome to bring your own training weapon
