Taijiquan Martial Arts Schools Today

Postby Dvivid » Wed Dec 19, 2012 9:30 am


Lets create a list of martial arts schools where you may study traditional Taijiquan. This means any school where you study a complete form and martial applications, at least. The modernized 24 or 48 forms do count, so long as the class includes martial applications.

Please feel free to list your school, with the basic (short) info about location and classes.

As we enter 2013, now is a great time to look toward the future of taijiquan, which is still only beginning to rise in the West. Lets preserve and promote the martial side of taiji.

I am interested in Martial arts. I am a person who supports the opinion that every school should involve martial arts as a part of the study, so that will be an advantage for children. I had completed the martial arts (karate) during my schools.
