External martial arts such as karate, ju jitsu, wing chun or kickboxing are all about strength and speed.
Strength is pitched against strength and the stronger, faster person usually wins.
This means that women often lose out.
Tai chi was designed to be a soft martial art. Strength is circumvented. They rely upon sensitivity and gravity rather than brute force.
Our classes ensure that you know what 'self defence' means and how to use your body effectively in difficult situations featuring multiple opponents (and ultimately armed attackers).
We will not patronise women in our school.
If you are not pulling your tai chi together, we will tell you.
