About the World Taiji Boxing Association
the wtba we look at all aspects of the arts, from the practical fighting
methods of Martial Baguazhang and Taijiquan, to the balancing healing
properties of the arts.
On the martial side we use several training tools to learn about good body mechanics, then take those principles learnt and put them into simple practical techniques for self defence.
On the healing side we look at both the internal and external, working towards a strong fit body as well as building on and balancing the internal Qi flow. To fully understand the internal arts, it's best not to separate the healing from the martial, having said that you can still gain great benefits from only practicing form and Qigong.
We take out training seriously, but we are not formal about how we run classes, no uniforms or bowing to Master, we keep all that stuff very laid back. We believe there is no such thing as an ultimate style of fighting or healing, it's what works for you, so have a look, try it out, and see if you like what we do.
