Wednesday 19 June - Biomechanics - 2 places available
Instead of tensing muscles as and when needed, the internal martial arts cultivate unbroken power at all times. No tensing is required.
The unorthodox movements employed by the tai chi forms were designed to offer a biomechanical advantage when using the body.

Wednesday 24 July - Form applications - 1 place available
When form and function become the same, it is easy to extract useful applications. Traditionally, it is said that there are at least seven applications for every form movement.
There are three types of martial application within form: chin na, jing and shuai jiao. A student must be capable of skilfully applying the form in a thorough and convincing way against an earnest attacker.

Wednesday 31 July - Chin na applications - 1 place available
Every misplacing the bones application contains unique leverage principles. Once the student can identify, understand and employ the principle, they can develop new applications using the same principle.
Gaining this skill moves the student notably away from a technique-based mentality. This is a critical forward step in terms of ability.
