Welcome to Tai Chi Wisdom, we teach friendly evening classes and weekend workshops in Brighton, Hove, Worthing and Upper Beeding, and daytime classes in Steyning. Our emphasis is on each student developing the skills required for excellent tai chi (t’ai chi ch’uan or taijiquan) and qigong (chi kong, chi kung etc…), starting with a simple short form for beginners before progressing through their chosen aspects of the traditional curriculum. Whether it’s health benefits, martial skills or the meditative aspects which have drawn you to tai chi and qigong, we value them all and enjoy teaching students how to deepen their understanding in all these areas.
Our weekly classes are taught in terms so that you can learn easily, step-by-step, with plenty of repetition and practice. Weekend workshops are opportunities to explore more deeply. We teach all levels from absolute beginners to teachers and national competitors; so, whatever your ambition, we have classes and seminars for you. We teach both modern and traditional Tai Chi including a complete Yang style curriculum which includes: medical and martial Qigong, hand forms, weapons forms and two person work for both hand and weapons which leads on to freestyle training; Simon is also a well-known expert in the full Cheng Man Ch’ing’s Simplified Tai Chi syllabus.
Simon is one of the UK’s leading professional tai chi teachers, registered and insured as a Senior Instructor with the Tai Chi Union for Great Britain and UK representative of Master Sam Masich, hosting his regular UK seminars. Having studied Martial Arts – including Judo, Aikido, Jujitsu – since 1975, Simon took up Tai Chi in 1991 and has specialised in this and other internal arts since. Teaching in Brighton since 1995, many teachers have been taught and inspired by Simon or continue to study with him as part of their tai chi journey.
