Taijiquan Classes in Parkstone, Poole, Bournemouth



We practise and teach authentic Chen style Taijiquan from the Chen Zhaokui lineage - as passed on by his son Chen Yu - what he refers to as 'Gongfu frame'.

We are based in Poole, Dorset. Our aim is to help determined, committed people from all walks of life achieve their goals through this wonderful, highly challenging traditional Chinese martial art; from meditative practise of the routines for health and fitness, to in-depth study of combat drills and martial applications.

People of all backgrounds can benefit from regular training with us, provided they persevere and work hard. Come along and strengthen your body, calm your mind and improve your health & well-being!


Below: A short clip of some of the form we practise...

" We’ve been students of Marc for over 7 years now and in all that time his never ending patience, love and enthusiasm for authentic Chen Style Tai Chi has never faltered.

Over this time, we have had the opportunity to attend a few seminars around the country with various other teachers. Attending with an open mind and the intention to see how we compared with similar students.

We are always delighted to see how well Marc has taught us.

He is extremely generous with his teaching and willing to impart his experiences and knowledge of the inner depths of Tai Chi for those students wishing to dig further than just scraping the surface.

If you are contemplating this wonderful and absorbing form of Tai Chi for health, fitness or for martial interest, make 2018 ‘The Year of the Dog’, the year in which to do it. "
