Hello!
I have been practicing Yang style Tai Chi for 2 years, and I am interested in learning Chen style. The school that I am studying at now focuses only on the health side of the art and I would love to be able to study Tai Chi as a comprehensive whole. My brother told me that ‘Joseph Chen’ is extremely talented and there is a school in Edmonton. And so, my search has brought me to this web site.

I am curious what the standard class rates are and I am also curious about full time training– how much that costs and if you can do a week at a time, months at a time or year round?

Thank you, I look forward to talking more.

-David

Hello David, I think that studying from this school will certainly give you the experience you are looking for!

Here is a copy of the Edmonton studio fee schedule and info from 2011 Edmonton full-time (it should be quite similar to this year):

Who Is the Program for?
Instructions and course design cater to people outside of China. Cultural elements are part of the course to immerse the students to the culture. Instructors are selected based on the ability to communicate in English and with physical gestures. There will be lots of Chinese students and visitors at the course. Whenever Chinese language is spoken, it will be interpreted into English. English instruction is not translated into Chinese.
If you’ve had the martial art bug, this is the program for you. If you had a fantasy of doing mysterious martial arts on a cloud shrouded mountain in remote China in ancient time, this is the program for you, except the ancient time part. We teach an unaltered ancient art, but in a modern facility, complete with coffee and tea! Master Chen Zhonghua’s ability and teaching is not like your average neighborhood instructor. In many ways, his “magic” is beyond what you have seen in movies (except the animation)! This will be an out of this world experience.
You don’t need any previous taiji training to be part of this program. Master Chen will start you up right from the beginning. Any previous habits will be eliminated during the course of study.
If you don’t want to be the best martial artist, you will come out with much improved health! This comes in a variety of ways. Students in the past have healed from asthma, heart problems, arthritis, fibromyalgia, knee problems, etc. Most students have lost weight!

There will be a Certificate of Attendance given to each participant.
Fulltime Course Certification is given only to those who successfully completes three-month or more of full time training. This will also include the completion of the entire course contents as outlined in course information.
