You can learn comfortably at your own pace. Every single person you train with was a beginner once, and they all remember their first day quite well. Your child will get about 15 minutes of rigorous exercise followed by about 15 minutes of practicing techniques with a partner. The last part of class typically includes games to teach techniques or other principles and a short cool down. You may learn one or two warm up exercises and the very first part of the Yang Style 108 move tai chi form. You may also follow along in the beginning of the form to see how it feels to practice. What are the next steps? Our objective is to give you enough information to make a good decision for yourself on whether to commit to training more regularly. In our experience, one class is not enough to make such a committment. So after your free class we offer a 2 week trial for only $25 that actually includes unlimited Aikido, Tai Chi and Yoga. After that most people know enough to decide whether or not they wish to continue. Please also note our favorable family pricing.
