  • 16.3.20 - Corovirus update - classes suspended

    Open or Close
    Unfortunately the guidelines have escalated since yesterday regarding the Corovirus, and advice to avoid 'clubs and unnecessary contact' has been given by government.

    Glasgow Tai Chi Classes are therefore suspended until further notice.

    I'm sorry to do this, but think it is for the best for now. I'll keep you informed of any change.

    In the meantime, keep up your practice !

    Open or Close
    HI All,

    I'm sorry to add to your day by mentioning the dreaded virus, but obviously it may affect the class, so here’s my thoughts at present.

    My intention is to hold the Tuesday and Thursday classes as normal. As I said last Thursday, I would ask that members act in accordance with current guidelines, and with respect for other class members…

    1. Don't come if you have had symptoms or are in contact with someone with the virus
    2. Please wash your hands immediately before class and after. Bring along a sanitizer if you wish.
    3. Use hankies once and dispose of them after use.
    4. Please leave a week or more gap before attending class if you have been abroad

    Beyond that, assuming the halls remain available, the classes will proceed. I understand if you feel you do not want to come, and thats your decision obviously.

    I am happy to discuss postponing the Sunday 22nd class if folks want to do that, although equally happy to proceed. You can let me know at class.

    If the situation changes, i will let you know

    The next Workshop/seminar will be on Sunday 3rd November. Open to all class members - please stick in your diary now !

    It is possible Ian Cameron will hold a seminar before the end of the year. If there is a clash then the above will most likely be postponed to allow attendance at Ian's, as these events are rare these days.

    I had almost forgotten about this gallery, set up probably 10 years ago or more on a google site, and linked to both Edinburgh and Glasgow.
    Link to Archive Gallery

    Content includes Ian cameron Meadowbank seminars, Cheng Tin hung in Edinburgh 1985 and others, Derek's photos from the Hong Kong Tai Chi academy, China trips, Tai Chi holiday in San Francisco, Application & Drills photos, Ronnie Tamburrini's hand created martial sculptures, and more if you dig about.

    Takes a bit of navigating, but have a look

    Thanks to everyone who attended the seminar yesterday. I hope to get some more photos soon, and will probably put them up on facebook later this week. Sorry if you are not in this picture, it was taken late in the day….

    Launched the new website today, and I hope you will go and have a look and give me some feedback.
    It is intended to provide the information necessary to inform about what we do, and how to find us. There is more to do, but I wanted to get it started. I will be renewing the blog page in the coming weeks with a load of stuff I will eventually get to, and introducing a new gallery, so keep an eye out. Significant changes will be posted on Facebook, so sign up if you have not already

    I would really appreciate feedback on anything that you think could be improved. Send me a message on the
    contact form (and I'll find out if it works!).

    Thanks Stephen
