Tai Chi Beginners Level 2

JinLi’s Tai Chi Beginner Level 2 program follows on from the foundations learnt as a beginner. You will  usually progress to this level within 1 to 2 years. The class format will remain essentially the same as you continue your skills development and training. It is at this stage that you will be introduced to things such as weaponry, push hands etc.

SUITABLE FOR EVERYONE WHO HAS COMPLETED THE BEGINNERS PROGRAM, ALL AGE AND FITNESS LEVELS.

Tai Chi Intermediate

JinLi’s Tai Chi Intermediate program continues on from the foundations learnt as a beginner. It is a challenging program incorporating the Chinese Wushu Association’s Duan Wei protocols and many other skills. You should expect to reach this level within 5 years depending on the amount of time you have to practice and study. 

SUITABLE FOR EVERYONE WHO HAS COMPLETED THE JINLI BEGINNERS TAI CHI PROGRAM.

 

If you would like to attend any of our classes, contact the instructor listed for that class or contact our office. You do not need to complete an enrolment form prior to attending your first class.

Your first JinLi class is FREE - if it doesn't suit you, walk away - no pressure, no cost. If you decide to stay you can pay either weekly or by the term.
