Mission: Charlottesville T’ai Chi Center is a non-profit organization dedicated to teaching and promoting the health benefits and art of T’ai Chi Ch’uan in the Charlottesville community.
We offer training in the Cheng-Ming System as taught by Great Grandmaster Wang Shu-Jin. Our Enrichment programs offer classes for At-Risk youth, After School program for city and public school students, and Seniors in the community.
T’ai Chi Ch’uan (Taijiquan) is a martial art characterized by soft, slow flowing movements of the torso and arms coordinated with weight shifts and steps.
It emphasizes relaxation, and is a form of meditation in motion. The benefits of T’ai Chi Ch’uan include improved balance, muscle tone and stress reduction. (Find out more…)
Teaching philosophy: These arts can best be passed down in a teacher-to-student relationship. We provide one-on-one instruction to all students. Classes are ongoing and students can start any time, and proceed at their own pace.
