Introduction About Malisa Timetable Teaching Programme Contact

INTRODUCTION:
Welcome to our Auckland Club homepage. Although serious and disciplined about our training we are pretty informal as well - we treat participants as the mature, intelligent and good-willed persons that most people are.
Feel very welcome to come along to any of our locations without invitation as appropriate below. (First class: come ten minutes early if you want a chat with your teacher)

Public Classes:
Adults, both young and older, love our more energetic TaiChi style ("Chen" family), the authentic traditional teaching and the long term health benefits that go with it.
We also teach the self defence, martial-art aspects to those who progress beyond the beginner's level. Chen style can be adapted to your own level of fitness and agility - every person in class is a unique "work-in-progress." Class training is not about uniformity or competition.

Classes for Seniors:
We also teach a specially modified form of Chen style Tai Chi for persons who need special attention (e.g. for balance issues, surgery rehab, senior citizens, outpatients or anyone who feels the normal public classes are too much). These popular classes teach short, graceful routines that maximise the many health benefits that come from regular practise of Tai Chi.
The classes proved so effective that our Club was chosen to provide ACC's free Tai Chi Fall Prevention Strategy in Counties Manukau from 2005 to 2012 when nation-wide funding was withdrawn. We endeavour to keep providing subsidised lessons to this target group as below.

Social Aspects:
Classes have an informal, social emphasis. If this is your cup of tea then there are plenty of opportunities to get involved.
For the younger ones there are special outings, movie nights, intensive training workshops, overseas conventions and public demo opportunities.
We also have social/educational "Tea and Talks," discounted luncheons at popular restaurants, public mass demos with other clubs, demos by our younger members and more.
