Welcome to the Angus Tai Chi Academy

 

The Angus Tai Chi Academy is a not for profit organisation dedicated to sharing the Tai Chi and related arts as originally taught by Master Moy Lin Shin (1931 to 1998).

 

The Academy currently runs Classes in Brechin, Farnell, Laurencekirk, Montrose and St. Cyrus. All instructors and office bearers are volunteers and all proceeds go towards the running of the Academy.

Our Aims

Under the general guidance of the International Association of Tai Chi and Lok Hup Academies, the aims of the group are:

  • Facilitate and encourage people to share in the Tai Chi and related arts as taught by Master Moy Lin-Shin

  • Enable people aged 18 and over from all walks of life to enjoy the benefits of Tai Chi

  • Provide instruction to allow people to participate in Tai Chi on a regular basis and train volunteer instructors to teach Tai Chi and related arts

  • Encourage involvement in Tai Chi in local communities

  • Develop an understanding of the benefits of this form of gentle exercise, as it promotes mental and physical well-being

 

The Angus Tai Chi Academy teaches 108-move Tai Chi. Our instructors pay particular attention to full extension in all of the movements, a style developed by Master Moy Lin-Shin (1931-1998).

He modified the traditional Yang Style 108-move Tai Chi set to maximize the health benefits for faster health improvement, as he realized that in a modern society, an exercise that was good for health was more important than a martial art for fighting.

 

 

The Angus Tai Chi Academy is a proud member of the International Association of TaiChi & Lok Hup Academies.

PLEASE NOTE


16th March 2020   COVID-19
You will all have seen or heard the advice that, to curb coronavirus, everyone in the UK should avoid "non-essential" travel and contact with others.  Therefore it has been decided that Tai Chi classes will be cancelled from the end of this week until further notice (i.e. no more classes after those on Thursday 19th March).  The committee will review the situation at the end of April, so please check these pages or our Facebook page to find out what is happening as things develop.  We have also decided to cancel the Workshop in May - as things are unlikely to have improved any by then.  We hope you all keep safe and look forward to seeing you again once the classes resume.
