Come join us for Our weekly Tai Chi Class


Weekly Tai Chi Push-Hands practice (tui shou, da Lu, san shou)

Join Stephen J. Goodson, a senior student of the late Robert W. Smith, in a weekly Tai Chi Two-person exercise class and exploration.

We will practice and explore the Tai Chi form and Tai Chi's two-person exercises (Tui Shou, Da Lu, and San Shou). You must be able to independently do the Tai Chi form as a prerequisite! We will look at how Tai Chi's Ti Fang technique informs Tai Chi's form and the two-person exercises.

(No street shoes on the studio floors. Loose, comfortable clothing is best. No recording equipment.)


Every Monday evening from April 24th, 2017 to June 19th, 2017.

7:00p.m. - 9:00p.m. 


$200 for the entire session or $30 per class

What our classes will cover:

  • Tai Chi as a soft art (no speed or strength required!)
  • The secret of the four ounce touch (the threshold between pressure and force)
  • The Ti-Fang technique (Tai Chi's secret)
  • The Tai Chi Classics (the ancients left us traces of glimpses)
  • Single Hand Tui Shou (Push Hands)
  • Two Hand Tui Shou (Push Hands)
  • Dalu (Four-corner Push Hands)
  • San Shou Training

Prerequisite: You must be able to independently do a Tai Chi form (we are "style" agnostic).
