Perhaps taking the ideas of yin and yang to the extreme, I teach both the seemingly gentle Chinese art of Tai Chi and the hard hitting Thai art of Muay Thai or Thai Boxing.

The Chen style Tai Chi classes, (Sundays 10:30-11:30) are mainly for health but I never loose sight of the fact that Tai Chi is a martial art and many of the applications of the movements within the forms will be explained and demonstrated. We practice Chi Gung (Qigong) exercises, the 18 short form, sabre form and push hands. Minimum age, 16 years old.

The mixed ability Muay Thai classes, Sundays (12:00-13:30), Tuesdays (19:15-20:30)(Levenshulme) and Wednesdays (19:00-20:00), cover all aspects of both modern and old style Thai Boxing for competition, fitness and self defence. All welcome, minimum age 10 years old.

Fully equipped gym with boxing ring and kick/punch bags.

All classes are taught in a relaxed and informal style. New beginners are always welcome.

See websites for full details.


Aimed at: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced.


Both the Tai Chi and Muay Thai classes are "pay as you go". There are no membership fees or monthly payments.
