Tai Chi Queensland

Just as Tai Chi varies greatly in practice and play, so too do Tai Chi Instructors and students.

With that in mind, you’ll find that each center while the same, will also offer uniquely different opportunities for your Tai Chi Study.

The Queensland Franchise was started in 1984 by National Director of Training, National Chief Instructor and Tai Chi Senior Master Rod Ferguson – who continues to run Queensland operations today.

Rod manages all aspects of the Queensland branch, and conducts monthly Instructor Training, to ensure all Academy Instructors have a thorough knowledge and understanding of the Tai Chi arts & philosphies. This training also educates Instructors to be aware of safety considerations and only use approved Academy exercises and sets, and how to nurture their students to enable them to experience the wonderful physical and mental benefits of playing Tai Chi.
