The Essex Tai Chi Academy is a not-for-profit organisation operated by volunteer instructors. We are dedicated to teaching the techniques and benefits of Tai Chi as originally taught by Master Moy Lin-Shin (1931-1998).

Adapted from martial arts, Tai Chi is gentle exercise that allows you to stretch your muscles, tendons, and ligaments in a natural way, creating a feeling of relaxation and providing real health benefits.

We welcome young and old alike and have become known for our relaxed and friendly approach to teaching. We also offer our services to partners in traditional health and social care agencies.

We offer classes in both Tai Chi and Lok Hup Ba Fa.

The Academy is concerned only with Tai Chi and is not affiliated with any religious groups.

Testimonials about Essex Tai Chi Academy

The benefits of belonging to Essex Tai Chi Academy stretch far beyond the great benefits of Tai Chi.

I have done Tai Chi on and off over the past five years.  For the later two years I have learned and practiced with Mike and Mary at the Essex Tai Chi Academy and in that time have understood more about Tai Chi.  I have suffered for several years with osteoarthritis and I have found that the pain is less – almost non-existent – and the stiffness gone.  I have more mobility now than the past few years.

Enjoyable way to keep fit with an enthusiastic group of people and extremely patient encouraging teachers.
