“In any action, the whole body should be light and agile, or Ching and Lin. One should feel that all of the body’s joints are connected with full linkage”.
Every movement of Taiji Quan is expressed from Wuji (Wu-Chi – infinity) to Taiji (supreme ultimate), or from pre-consciousness to actual internal consciousness. Movement is never initiated merely by the hands, arms or legs, instead the mind itself directs the body to function as a single unit with every joint linked. The body should be agile and natural, the movement continuous and constant like the mountain spring flowing unceasingly into the stream.
“Chi should be stirred. The spirit of vitality, or Shen (spirit), should be concentrated inwards”.
Chang San-Feng – The founder of Taiji Quan (Tai Chi Chuan)
Excerpt from The Taiji Classics.

We strive to inspire and guide our students on their journey to wellness and self-improvement, cultivating a lifelong practice that enhances health, vitality and inner peace. Through our dedication to the art of Taiji, we aim to make a positive impact on the lives of our students and the broader community.

The Red Dragon teaches Taiji Quan (Tai Chi Chuan) and Qigong (Chi Kung) the ancient and traditional Chinese way, not just as a health exercise, but also incorporating the martial arts aspects as well. The benefits are enormous. Building a strong mind, a healthy body and a positive spirit helps one live a healthier and balanced lifestyle.
Our Mantra is “EAT. SLEEP. TAIJI. REPEAT”. We believe Taiji is not just something you do, it is who you are, it becomes a way of life. So we never stop practising. And why stop something that is ultimately so good for you?
