    I’m interested in beginning classes with your group. I begun studying Acupuncture and Chinese medicine this year and it was recommended that we start up a practice such as this. I’m wondering as to what the process is to join and the details of when and where you run the sessions.

    Thanking you.

    Hi
    We live in Pt Lonsdale and were wondering if you run any classes in or near Ocean Grove? There was a Tai Chi teacher down here but no longer teaching. Also are there any Saturday classes? I’m also interested in fees etc. I’m looking for myself and my 10 year old daughter.
    many thanks
    Caitlin

    Hi,
    I am interested in Qi Gong and developing a regular practise can you tell me if you run Qi Gong classes and if so the style of Qi Gong/ when and where?
    Thank you, Cathy

    • gtaichi says:

      We are often asked about Qi Gong. Our style of Tai Chi incorporates Qi Gong. I am sure you have spent a bit of time researching on the web already. There are many books in English about Qi Gong. Maybe what you are looking for is Nei Gong but before you can do that you will need to find a good teacher. It is not a trivial discipline it needs time preserverance and dedication. We believe there are some Shaolin Wu Shu practitioners in Melbourne and there may be even a closet master in the Bellarine. We have been doing Tai Chi since 1981 and our resident Grandmaster Khor Eng Chor lives in Melbourne and together with his brother Grandmaster Gary Khor have been teaching Tai Chi and Qi Gong for more than 30 years.

      • Frank Tindal says:

        In 1985 Brad Thompson, Laural Scott and myself under the auspices of the Australian Academy of Tai Chi brought Tai Chi to Geelong @ the Barwon Rowing Club, Barwon Terrace. Previous to that in 1981 Jim Fitzdale from the USA had a small class at Queenscliff over a weekend, to get an interest in Tai Chi. I then went on to establish two schools in Geelong (Barwon Tai Chi Chuan School). Travelled and trained in Hong Kong. To my recollection, these were the first events of Tai Chi in Geelong.

        • gtaichi says:

          The Australian Academy of Tai Chi was started by Grandmaster Gary Khor and left Geelong and surrounds soon after. Unbeknown to trainees, Grandmaster Ron Khor brother to Gary took over training in Victoria and Tasmania while Gary trained all the other states. The Celestial College of Tai Chi is administrated by Ron Khor and Geelong Tai Chi is one of it’s schools. So if you are interested or a past student of Gary, there are a few in our classes, and want to continue this Yang style come along. The brothers Khor learnt the Yang style in Malaya which predates the current Yang style in the PRC. In 1956, the sports and health ministry of the PRC standardized all styles into a few forms like 24, 81, 32 sword and others which are also taught at Geelong Tai Chi.

          Geelong Tai Chi is a registered business name.There are also running in Geelong other schools and individuals that teach various forms and styles of Tai Chi.

    Hi,
    I live in Clifton Springs. Would like to join Tai Chi classes in Geelong (or Bellarine peninsula) if possible. Kind Regards,

    • gtaichi says:

      We practice the Yang style of Tai Chi, 6:30 pm Wednesday nights at St Paul’s Church Hall, 175 Latrobe Tce.
      Corporate and private programs can be discussed and arranged to your requirements.

      Beginners are always welcome, please arrive earlier so you can be registered.
      Please wear loose clothing and flat bottom, slip free shoes to the class.
      While there is no apparent exertion it is wise to bring water for individual needs.

      The session lasts for 1 hour, comprising warm up, form tutorial, cool down. The beginning student will be taught the traditional Beijing 24 as expressed by PRC Ministry of Sports. Continuing and advanced students engage in the further study and practice of Tai Chi Chuan. The student will be introduced and taught Beijing 24, Yang 108, Qi Gong, Shibashi 1-7, Lotus Qi Gong, Ba Dua Jin, Beijing 42, sword, fan, sabre, flute, Chen and Sun forms. Incorporating meridian and lymphatic system activation, Relaxation, Meditation, health and wellbeing exercises. Tai Chi is indeed a subtle martial art which you will also learn by inference and example.

      Please note if you have some physical or physiological issues, it is best to seek a doctor’s advice before starting. Tai chi is a self regulating activity for those with issues you must regulate your activity in class depending on the level of your mobility. Only move as far as you can or stretch to the limit of comfort regardless of the instruction you receive in class. It is a slow entry into fitness and will take at least 12 to 15 sessions before you realise some benefits.

      Terms are 7 weeks long and the sessional fee is $7?9, concessional cards $69, casual, walk in and casual practitioners pay $15 per session.

      Please see http://www.geelongtaichi.com for information on tai chi and particularly http://www.celestialtaichi.com for a list of the different schools in Victoria
