Chinese Martial Arts

The class format for Chinese Martial Arts involves learning forms, a few movements at a time, followed by the application of each form with a training partner.

Once you have learnt the forms we create sequences of techniques joined together, marking them easier to remember.

At TMAS we teach the following forms and styles:

  • Chang Quan
  • Qing Nian Quan
  • luohan Baji Quan
  • Xing Yi Quan

Self Defence - Chin Nai

Defend against grabs by escaping and controlling your attacker using locks on their joints and pressure points

Tai Chi – 10, 24 & 42 step forms

Tai Chi is great for stress relief by meditation and we teach the following forms:

  • The 10 step form which is easy to learn and can be practiced in a small area
  • The 24 step Beijing Short form which takes about 6 minutes to complete (if done properly with controlled breathing)
  • The 42 Posture Sword Form is an international standard routine created for competition - sword forms are extension of bare handed movements

Tai Chi is a complete martial arts system and just like the forms, it has more than one application.

Chi Gung 5 Elements & Shaolin Chi Gung

Chi Gung 5 Elements is great for healing the body and defragging your mind so you can function at peak performance whilst Shaolin is great for strengthening the body.

Xing Yi

For Xing Yi you first learn the 5 element movements based on wood, fire, water, earth and metal and then progress to the 12 animal techniques based on the spirit and fighting style of each animal.

Xing Yi is a complete martial arts system and just like the forms, it has more than one application.

Chinese Martial Arts are suitable for ages 12 years and over.
