This trip is being organised by Deyin Taijiquan Institute who have over 15 years of organising Tai Chi trips from the UK. This trip has been tailored for suit Dao Lu, but financial and trip responsibility is entirely with Deyin Taijiquan Institute to whom all monies are paid.

For a rough idea of costs, the package ranges from £1999 to £2649, plus visa fees, gratuities, additional meals and drinks, free-time meals, free-time travel and spending money.

After a successful marketing and recruitment completed in October 2017, from January to March 2018, we have been very busy supporting people to get their visa and advise on other useful and practical information for your travel in China to make the best of your experience and staying safe and strong.

Who We Are

Dao Lu CIC (Community Interest Company) is a local group of people who are passionate about Tai Chi, an ancient Chinese martial art, and its great health benefits. We promote Tai Chi training to local communities and beyond for a healthier and calmer mind, body and lifestyle.

We set ourselves up in April 2013 and registered at Companies House and the C.I.C. Regulator, The Office of the Regulator of Community Interest Companies, in October 2013. We are also a registered member of British Council for Chinese Martial Arts, the national governing body for Chinese martial arts under Sport England.

We are particularly targeting hard to reach community groups to benefit from Tai Chi training. We work with many different organisations including local authorities to bring Tai Chi to local residents. In August 2014 we won a Big Lottery Fund award to deliver a comprehensive Tai Chi programme, Ultimate Wellbeing, to a wider range of groups in their familiar settings such as care homes and days centres.

Watch this 3 minute Dao Lu/Wendy film, told by Wendy, a Dao Lu Tai Chi student, as part of 1,000 Londoners Project, the biggest documentary in the world about a city. This film was premiered in September 2017.
