Everyone interested in Taijiquan is welcome. There will be enough instructors to lead beginners classes as well as more advanced training. Through practicing together, many questions we have can be answered.

In Hong Junshengs Book, Translated by Master Chen Zhonghua there is this poem:


…You also need

To have good friends

With friends

You can help each other

                                                                     Hong Junsheng, from Learning

This is basically what this meetup is about.

So let’s practice together!
