Wellington School of Tai Chi Chuan is celebrating it’s 10th anniversary this month, and is inviting the community to come along this weekend and learn more about the ancient art form.

Tai Chi has been practised in China for centuries as a martial art, as exercise, and as a means of improving the flow of internal energy (chi) within the body. It improves balance, memory and strength.

The school, which is headed by Sifu (Master) Hennie Barnard was founded in 2001 and is based in Halford Place at the end of Jackson Street, Petone. With more than one hundred students and 9 instructors, the school is the largest of its kind in the Wellington region. Due to recent demand new branches have been opened in Whitby and Roseneath.

On Sunday 31 July from 2pm the school, in Hereford Place, will be open to public. There will be demonstrations, weapons displays, opportunities to speak with students and instructors and of course the chance to have a go.

Hennie has been involved with various martial arts for over 50 years, with the last 23 years dedicated to Tai Chi Chuan. He has been an instructor for over 20 years and also teaches at various colleges and schools in the Wellington region. He is also a New Zealand National judge at Kung Fu and Tai chi competitions.

Tai Chi is suitable for people of any age or ability and students include everyone from martial arts experts, to dancers to people recovering from hip or replacements. Classes are also offered in Qi Gong, meditation and self-defence.

Everyone is welcome!
