Here at Jade Lotus Tai Chi Chuan we have worked to keep the important traditional aspects of Tai Chi Chuan a part of our school while organizing our curriculum in a logical manner. We have organized our curriculum into seven defined subject areas allowing students to see the breadth of this amazing art. We recognize not every student will want to learn every subject area, it is our hope, however, that students will progress at their pace and grow to appreciate all aspects of Tai Chi Chuan.
The following subject areas are worked on to varying degrees through out a students entire Tai Chi journey.
