​Entering the gate and being led to the path, this must come from oral guidance. To ceaselessly exert oneself in the method is self-cultivation. (Yang Cheng Fu, c.1930; trans: Swaim, L., 2005, p. 437.)

How to Join & Participate
Winchester VA area training

Tai Chi classes
Please call. If you send an email, please be sure to follow up with a phone call.
Meet the Trainer. (Required.) Please arrange a time to meet and discuss your entry into Traditional Tai Chi training. At this time, you will be provided necessary enrollment
forms. This process replaces the old-world custom of approaching a teacher in the hope of being accepted for training. It also is designed to ensure that you ascertain that Tai Chi is what you thought. Location directions will be provided when your interview time is set.
Confirm. Confirmation of your place requires pre-payment of relevant fees (see above).
Attend training. Full info at
It's important to attend consistently and practise between classes in order to complete learning the movements sequence of the 1st third in about 12 weeks and of the entire form in about a year. Frequent absences slow down your progress which new students find discouraging.
Aumgenic™ class: Register, pre-pay to confirm, attend.

NOTE: SPACE IS LIMITED at our VA location and our training group is kept intentionally small. Because space is limited, registration and meeting the trainer do not guarantee a place in training.
