If you are a practising martial artist in any discipline I would  be delighted to hear from you, and perhaps we could share our insights.


Cary Outis has taught the Internal Martial Arts of Tai Chi Chuan, Hsing I Chuan and Ba Gua Jiang for over thirty years, and studied them for over fourty . The first twenty one of those were with his master, Rose Li Shao Chiang. Having found it unfathomable for a while he is keen to make it 'fathomable' to newcomers, without trivialising one of the world's most remarkable Arts.

Tai Chi Chuan is an “Internal” martial art system  of exercise and meditation discovered and developed in China.  A series of uninterrupted  “shadow boxing” movements is performed, usually slowly, in harmony with the breath, encouraging a quiet mind  and a relaxed agile  body .  

Tai Chi is suitable for women and men of all ages and physical conditions, and is introduced slowly  to ensure that, with regular practice, nobody gets left behind in the process. Tai Chi skill and understanding grow over time, and careful study  is invariably rewarded. Our classes last for one hour, and run in terms of twelve  or so weeks. They  are open to all.

If you would like to discuss these or other matters, please feel free to ring  the  tutor, Cary Outis, on 07934 424168. 
You are also very welcome to email Cary at coutis@gmail.com.
