Sat, 17th – 24th August or
14th – 21st December 2019
These specially organised residential retreats are open to all levels of Tai Chi styles practitioners (i.e. complete beginners to advanced levels) and also other styles of martial arts practitioners.
A rare opportunity to study under Master Ding - a chance not to be missed by any one seeking to further their understanding and improve their standards in this fascinating ancient Chinese art of Tai Chi Chuan. As is said in the Tai Chi classics,
“The subtlety of Tai Chi Chuan is such that a small error in the beginning will take you a long way from the end goal”.
In addition, the week will enable you to take time out of your normal busy routine to relax, energise and bring about the harmony and balance to the mind, body and spirit. There will undoubtedly be lots of fun and a chance to meet and make new friends with the same interest.
Feel free to circulate this information to your relatives and friends who may be interested. Once again, do not forget, that these Open Retreats are suitable for complete beginners (with no knowledge of Tai Chi Chuan) to experienced practitioners of any styles of Tai Chi Chuan and also other external styles of martial arts. All are welcome.

The world mourns the sad loss of another great master of the traditional Yang Family Tai Chi Chuan, Grandmaster Chu Gin Soon. He passed away on the 18th March 2019 in Boston, USA. He was the second disciple of Master Yang Sau Chung, the eldest son of the famous Yang Cheng Fu.
Grandmaster Chu Gin Soon first learnt Tai Chi from Lai Hok Soon in Hong Kong in 1956. After the death of his first teacher in 1964, he continued his Tai Chi training in Hong Kong with Master Yang Sau Chung, the Fourth Generation lineage holder of the Yang Family Tai Chi Chuan.
In 1968, Grandmaster Chu Gin Soon moved to the United States and opened a year later, the Gin Soon Tai Chi Club in Boston, Massachusetts where he taught traditional Yang Family Tai Chi Chuan to numerous students in Boston and across the world.
Both Vincent Chu and Gordon Chu, the sons of Grandmaster Chu Gin Soon continue his legacy in teachings traditional Yang Family Tai Chi Chuan as they have learned from their father at the Boston Tai Chi Club.
Master Ding and his family together with Master Ding Academy’s students all express our deepest condolences to the family of Grandmaster Chu Gin Soon and his numerous students throughout the world.
