What Our Students say

I joined the Chen tai chi Beginners class in October 2019. I enjoy attending Sien's classes - he teachers the importance of the Tian Cai Chen tai chi training principles thoroughly to ensure that you understand the importance of the fundamentals. The workout I get in this class benefits my whole body, including my arthritic knees.
