Welcome to Spiral Taiji. I teach Chen family taijiquan (tai chi chuan) in Cambridge. I have practised taijiquan for over 10 years, principally in the style of Chen Xiaoxing. For more information see this page.

Chen taijiquan has a long history as both a martial art and a health system. The direct descendants of the inventor of taijiquan, Chen Wangting, continue to practice their family art.

Practising taijiquan confers several kinds of health benefits. At Spiral Taiji, you will learn this art of meditation, relaxation, and strengthening of the mind and body. Classes are currently in Trumpington, just outside Cambridge.
