Toronto Workshops and Classes

by Kelvin Ho


Master Chen Zhonghua has been coming to Toronto to conduct regular workshops since 2009. You will be fully immersed in the taiji training atmosphere during each workshop. We often have participants coming from outside of Toronto, such as Kitchener, Guelph, London (Ontario), Winnipeg, New York, New Jersey, New Hampshire, Connecticut and even as far as Italy and Australia.

Kelvin Ho, Master Chen Zhonghua’s disciple, is the instructor for Practical Method Toronto. He has been teaching and promoting the Practical Method system in Toronto, Markham, Richmond Hill, Canada since 2011. He has received numerous medals in various Taiji competitions in Greater Toronto Area. He is also a vice-president of MartialArts Association Canada, and the Media Director of Canadian Taijiquan Federation Like his teacher, he feels an obligation to pass this great art onto others.

I just came across this site in Google search. I very much enjoyed the videos and other information about Chen Zhonghua here.

I am looking for a good Chen style Taijiquan teacher in Toronto. Can you offer any suggestions?

Many thanks,

John Hanna

Hi Mark,

As you have joined our facebook group, I will chat with you more there.

I got your contact information through the internet as a reputable sports instructor. I would like to know if you offer training on Boxing/Martial Art/Taekwondo/Karate and how much you charge per hour for your training. I will be looking forward to your response. Also, which type of credit cards do you accept as a form of payment? Best Regards.


Kelvin Ho October 31, 2018 at 11:18 am

Michael, I will send you an email to discuss. Thanks.
