Toronto Tai Chi

Important Note: We are now in Toronto, Canada (See Post #3):

If you live around the Jiayi, Yenshui, Baihe, or Tainan areas (Kaohsiung is maybe 45 min driving time) you may be interested in the opening of...

Chang Yang Cun (常陽村)

This new school (located in Hsinying) is named in honor of the old name for Chenjiagou, is a primarily Tai Chi/Internal arts school. In this school there are special offers for all RSF members:

- You may come and I will teach you what (little) I know for free or in exchange for teaching me.
- Welcome to come any time and practice your own martial arts for free by yourself (must schedule ahead to avoid conflicts and because someone has to be there to open school etc)
- Welcome to come use the space to run your own classes for a reasonable fee
- Traveling martial artists are welcome to stay in the school overnight (there is a shower) for low cost however there is no storage and can't stay during business hours.

There is an AC and the space is big enough for two or possibly three people to do their forms by themselves if you don't mind company. There is enough space for six or seven people to do brush knee, tantui or xingyi up at least fifteen times down the room before turning back. You can see a video of the space here: ... 995898855/

I am only offering the use of the space free to RSF members during off hours. I am still deciding what the membership fees will be like but I am gravitating towards a monthly membership of between $1000 and $2000 NTD ($30 to 60 USD) a month depending on the number of classes you are signing up for and group or private.

Classes will include (by appointment):
* Qigong (5 animal frolics, Taoist Qigong, 2 different kinds of Taiji qigong, Yijinjing/Buddhist style incl. Eight Brocade, 20 Postures qigong, Hunyuan qigong).
* Yang style (5-form, 24-form and variations of 108 Yang long form)
* Chen style Xinjia (Beijing Style, more or less)
* Sun style
* Tai Chi Fan

Guest instructors/by request include:
* Xingyiquan, Yiquan
* Wu style
* Cheng Man Ching style and Taiji sword
* Tantui
* Wushu & Ching Wu forms (Lohan Shi Ba Shou, Ba Bu Lian Quan)
* Wing Chun
* Changquan, Cha Quan
* Bajiquan
* White Crane (Feeding Crane)

There are also cultural classes available including:
* Chinese lessons, Japanese lessons, English lessons (for Chinese)
* Chinese philosophy and meditation, including Taoist, Buddhist, and Zen Meditation
* Chinese painting lessons
* Origami
* Igo (Wei-Qi)

All instructors are qualified and can give qualifications and references upon request.

That is a very kind offer! (Tainan is of course very far for most of us...) Also, congratulations on opening your school.

It might be helpful to open a website for your school.

I have since moved to downtown Toronto (Canada) and am now teaching Tai Chi and Qigong.

I offer a very comprehensive program, with a guarantee of internal development including Qi development within 100 days or your money back. You can even choose your style; Yang, Sun or Chen.

My usual charge now is $40/hr, or $40/month for group, but of course for all our rumsoakedfist brothers there is a deep discount.
