At the start of lockdown we immediately switched to teaching a mixture of classes via Skype – they have become very popular and have been a great way to stay in touch over the last few months.

You can access as many of these classes as you wish for a £25 per month basic subscription. Or for £50 per month, you can also have two 30 minute one-to-one sessions with Mark per month.

You can subscribe by visiting our shop page and choose the best subscription for you.

The classes are 6 days a week at 10am. On Sunday mornings we have 4 classes, including two weapons classes where you can join in learning the staff and cane. The classes are recorded for those who are not able to make them live and are available on this website for those who subscribe.

The classes focus on either tai chi related soft/internal training, or kung fu/fitness/external training.

So far with the groups, we have been working on Shibashi qigong forms (one and two), Eight Pieces of Brocade qigong, various meditations, tai chi basics, kung fu forms (San Zhan and Praying Mantis), tai chi cane, and kung fu staff… and much, much more! We revisit these forms and routines regularly, and will be starting new ones in September also.

The classes are a great way to fit training into your day and integrate it into a busy schedule without having to worry about leaving home, or social distancing.

The sessions will remain even if and when we get back to regular classes. Click here to view the timetable*

See you online!

*the timetable may change occasionally, especially when it comes to adding regular classes back (hopefully!) but there will remain a healthy amount of online classes for you to join in with.
