Treasure Hunt

Posted by Stuart Herbert on May 28th, 2008 in Technique.

How well do you know your form? How well does your form, and indeed your practice, relate to the Tai Chi Classics? Can you find all of the Thirteen Postures in your form?

And, for my students, a treasure hunt … can you spot which of the Thirteen Postures appears where in Grasp Sparrows Tail? Especially the one I haven’t mentioned yet in my class? 🙂


After the success of the first Tai Chi @ the Knapp on Barry Island last Saturday, we’ll be back there again this Saturday (and every Saturday onwards) to play the form down by the sea. I hope to see you there!


As part of the Adult Learning week of events in Barry Library, Vale of Glamorgan, I’ll be doing two Tai Chi demonstration sessions this Saturday 24th May 2008, starting at 10am and 11am. Why not come along, see for yourself what Tai Chi is like, and have a go too?

First Step Accomplished

Posted by Stuart Herbert on May 19th, 2008 in News.

Tomorrow night (Tuesday) is a very proud night for me. Tomorrow night, eight of my students will be taught the last remaining moves of the Ng Family Yang Style Tai Chi Chuan, and will follow me through the complete form for the first time.

We’ve a lot of work ahead to get these students to the point where they are confident playing the form by themselves, without prompting from me. If they come back for next year, I’ll also be able to introduce them to the Ten Principles that guide and shape our particular tiny little school of Tai Chi.

But this is a major milestone, and I can’t congratulate my students enough for their hard work and dedication.

Tai Chi Class Calendar Now Up

Posted by Stuart Herbert on May 1st, 2008 in News.

I’ve finally gotten my finger out, and added a page to my blog listing all my Tai Chi classes and practice sessions. At the moment, I’m just teaching the one class on a Tuesday evening, but starting from the end of May, I’m going to be doing an outdoor practice session (not a formal class) at the beautiful Knapp in Barry.
