The School of Tai Chi Chuan and Internal Arts is a growing group of dedicated and passionate instructors led by Simon and Cher Robins.  I am a qualified instructor with the school, fully insured and registered with the Tai Chi Union of Great Britain.

​We teach a complete system of authentic, traditional taijiquan (tai chi) which we know offers the best you can get in health, meditative and internal arts. Our teacher, Sam Masich is one of the world’s leading internal martial artists; we continue to study as well as teach his Internal Arts Method in weekly classes and weekend workshops around Sussex.

I am now teaching a tai chi / qigong class from 11.45 – 12.45 on Fridays at the Hall.  Starting with basic tai chi principals, you will be studying the 5 Section Solo Hand Form, a short Yang style form devised by Sam Masich.  We will also be looking at some traditional qigong sets with a focus on breath and circulation. Some partner work is involved.

Tai chi and qigong have many health benefits and are wonderful for balance, co-ordination and general well-being. It’s also great fun! Some students in the group have been studying with me since September 2017, and new students are welcome to join the class at any time; some students in the group have only been practising for a few  weeks. There is a huge amount of repetition and we continually review and reinforce what we have learnt.

£7.50 per class or £5 concessions (state pension / unwaged).  First class is free so come along and give it a go!  Wear loose clothing and flat shoes. Suitable for  all ages and levels of fitness.

Peter Batten writes about a local man

I have been living in Hove for almost nineteen years. One of the rewards which Nikki and I have come to recognise is the ever-growing Brighton Festival. From the year 2000 we began to explore the Open Houses and to admire the many talented people who display their work. If you have never visited any of these mini galleries you have missed a rich experience. Yes, the work is varied in media, style, presentation and quality, but everywhere you will have the chance to discover unique artefacts and meet people with a personal style and vision. (more…)
