Int'l School of Shiatsu,
10 So. Clinton St., Ste. 300,
Doylestown PA 18901
This building is also called the Landmark Building, and is at the meeting of Court, State and Clinton Streets. We're on the third floor.
We teach Master William C.C. Chen's 60 movement short form of Yang family Tai Chi Chuan. (Long forms usually have 108 or 128 movements.) This style derives from Grandmaster Cheng Man-Ching, who was the last disciple of Yang Cheng-Fu, creator of the consistently slow-motion style widely practiced throughout the world today.
Master Chen, my primary teacher, was a senior disciple of Prof. Cheng's, and he is himself one of the most famous and influential Tai Chi
masters of our generation. He is noted for emphasizing the subtle principles of relaxation which make Tai Chi a profound vehicle for the
promotion of health and longevity, and also for preserving the martial viability of Tai Chi, for those who wish to study the self-defense
aspect of this enigmatic art.
While some students will be content with a beginning series of classes, others will fall in love with this art, and they should know that learning the whole 60 movement form usually takes about 10 months, and that's just the beginning. For advanced students, we offer classes in form refinement, push hands, Tai Chi Sword, and Tai Chi Boxing.
No special clothing is required for Tai Chi, but wear something loose and comfortable. Chinese slippers are considered the most appropriate footware, but stocking feet or any flat-soled non-street shoes may work just fine for you. The Shiatsu Center asks that we wear no street shoes, and no bare feet.
If you have further questions regarding any of our Tai Chi classes, feel free to give me a call at 215-257-8737 or Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
