So much Tai Chi to choose from



​We are very happy to say that our Courses, Classes and Workshops pages are all bursting with Tai Chi for you to try!

Whether you are an absolute beginner or a seasoned pro, there are classes for everyone. Find them all here.


Our Tai Chi Taster classes are a great way of experiencing what a course will be like. Find them on this page.  

Short Courses, One-Day Workshops and Events can be found here.

Tai Chi Outside - We also have courses and events taking place outside, not quite in the sea like this video of one of our Founders, Neil R. Hall, in Wales, but in some beautiful places: Batsford and Bodenham Arboretums, and by the Lakes at Lenches Lakes.  

(If you can't see that video, it's because some devices don't show it.  You can see the video on YouTube here.)

New venues for us in Redditch!


Tai Chi for All


We have two new venues in Redditch for our Friday classes with the new *Tai Chi for All* at the beautifully spacious and well-appointed Studio 1, which is above the shops in the Kingfisher Shopping Centre, Redditch, B97 4HJ. Classes are at 2:30 p.m. on Fridays, and you find them by using the lift to studio 1, just next to Shoe Zone.  You'll be surprised at what a lovely space is hidden up there. Please feel free to come and try a class as a free taster. Please contact us for information and to arrange this, or just turn up! 




The Japanese Sword Art of Mugai Ryu


We also have a new venue for Mugai Ryu Swords in Community House, Redditch. Classes are at 103, Easemore Road, Redditch, B98 8EY, which has free parking at the venue.  These Japanese Sword Art classes take place from 12.45- 1.45 p.m. on a Friday.




Bronze for Martyn


Congratulations to Chinatown's Mr Martyn Trigg, who won a Bronze medal in the 80kg+ sparring category at the LTSI South East Open.  This is a TaeKwonDo event.  Well done also to Mr Jon Alagoa and Miss Angela Sun who took part.  We have had a strong history of doing well in open competitions, but in recent years have not been so involved.  So thanks to those three for leading the way, and if you would like to follow, Mr Alagoa is supporting involvement in a number of open competitions throughout the year.  Speak to your Instructor!




Did You Get Your Grapple On?



Moreton-in-Marsh's Flora showing how she can take down a 4th Dan Instructor at the Grappling Self Defence workshop, which was a huge success.  See all the photos on our Facebook page (don't forget to like it while you're there).  There's a follow up Workshop on 1st June working on Efficient Striking in Self Defence.  You can book it here. 


Welcome to Our Newest Instructors!



Congratulations to our two new wonderful Instructors, Michelle Baker and Gaynor Barr, who are a true credit to the LCTKD Teaching Team!
