Deep River Ti Chi
Ocala, FL
What, Where & When We Teach

"If you want to go fast, go alone.  If you want to go far, go together!"

Our teaching is focused on the PRINCIPLES and foundations of tai chi.  Each of our classes start with a set of qigong movements where we emphasize using the tai chi principles to learn how to physically and mentally relax, to move with grace and balance, and to issue power without tensing any muscles.  Once a student has grasped the fundamentals, they can begin to learn tai chi.  Because our teaching is focused on the basics and principles of tai chi, what we teach is applicable to any style of tai chi.  Students who have shown a level of proficiency and understanding and want to go further, can learn push hands and sword, and even bagua.

Tai chi and bagua are known as "internal arts", meaning that movements and power are generated from within the body and are not visible externally.  Most tai chi that is done today is only the external movements, lacking in the internal aspects and devoid of the essential principles that make tai chi what it is.  Whereas some health spas or martial arts schools teach tai chi as a selling point, we only teach tai chi so with over 40 years experience, our knowledge and skill are far deeper than what is generally available.   Our form is Wu Ji Jing Gong Tai Chi, but we work with student of all styles of tai chi such as Yang, Chen, Wu or Sun, and other martial arts, e.g. karate and kung fu to take them to a higher level.  We can do the same for you.
