A wonderful mix of incredible scenery between lush tropical forest and picturesque waterfalls, temples and tai chi. Dave guided us through different breathing disciplines and meditations as well as ancient Asian wisdom.

I did the level one Tai Chi foundation course and it did not disappoint me at all. I felt the Tai Chi I learned was very real, not a fluffy dance version but a very complete internal health and spiritual based martial art. The course was very well structured with several side exercises and lessons in Qi Gong, pushing hands... More

I really enjoyed studying the Tai Chi 24 form from Dave this summer. He doesn't just teach the choreography, but also incorporates the martial applications, correct breathing techniques/posture and even introduces the concepts of leading qi around the body. I learnt a great deal and would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in gaining a deeper understanding of this... More
