Welcome to a window into our Community of Practice…
We are a grassroots group of Tai Chi practice enthusiasts ranging from relative novice, or rusty past-practitioner ;-), to well-practiced student of the art.
While our numbers are gradually growing as a community of practice, we openly invite others to join us from the surrounding region. Our shared interest in Tai Chi includes not only improving our balance, health and wellness, but also to nurture a community of practice that, in short time, will interact with ‘neighbouring’ communities of Tai Chi practice.
Travellers passing through Bradford are also welcome — in keeping with our openness to interacting with others and pursuit of good, friendly relations with other Tai Chi groups.
We now look forward to our new chapter of experience in 2019 as the new, and most northeast affiliate of the Canadian Taijiquan Federation.
We also warmly welcome Yang Style instructor, Giovanni Mosquera, to our grassroots community, and look forward to learning from him as well.
We practice Chen and Yang styles
