Our community curriculum also includes Yang-style Tai Chi where we teach standard beginner Hand Forms. These demonstration and tutorial videos are courtesy of the Deyin Taijiquan Institute, a leading UK and European Tai Chi teacher training institute, specialising in the teaching of Yang- and Sun-style Tai Chi hand and weapons forms as well as Qigong and other Chinese cultural practices (eg, Chinese brush painting, calligraphy and Mandarin language). The tutorials are presented by Master Tary Yip, one of the founders of the Institute, whose Chair is Professor and Master Li Deyin. We are grateful to Master Tary and the Deyin Taijiquan Institute for allowing us to link to these tutorial videos.
