“This is a real hidden gem of a school, informed by tradition but taught in a contemporary context with sincere attention to martial applications. Great place, whether you are a beginner or highly experienced.

Sifu John Chen is a highly accomplished tai chi teacher, smart enough to form an alliance with the Guided Chaos art which takes tai chi principles to the next level and renders them highly contemporary. So there is a range of possibilities: Come to the regular classes and learn the more traditional forms, and/or come to our Thursday night class where we do “contact flow” ala Guided Chaos – free form movement that gives your nervous system the chance to practice moving to random stimuli.

Completely safe but at the same time martially meaningful. For the right students, this is the perfect choice!”
