Great learning Taijiquan from an all round, high level Chinese Martial arts Grandmaster, you won't find a better Teacher anywhere else.



My life has improved in many areas- strength, flexibility, health (I used to have sore knees), mental clarity & calmness.

Shifu Zhu is the master that challenges you whatever your level is, he's kind, patient & opened.



This school is just amazing.It offers traditional, authentic Tai Chi taught by GM Zhu Chang Hai. Clases are fun but tough and it really makes you understand why is Tai Chi so good for you.


If you ever thought about finding a real Master - this is the place to go
