About Bristol Tai Chi

Our classes are based around the system taught to us directly by Master Chen YingJun, as taught to him from infancy by his father Grandmaster Chen XiaoWang - who is the 18th Generational head of the style. We are hugely privelidged to host Master YingJun for a week each autumn. Master YingJun is incredibly dedicated to learning and teaching the art to the highest level, but is also great fun, offering the very highest level of teaching in a way accessible to all learners. Master YingJun has been acknowledged by his father as his successor, and is widely accpeted to be one of the best teachers in the world.


Principle Instructor, Mark Leonard, has been teaching full time since 1986. He trains each year for a week in China with Master Chen YingJun, in Chen village - the birthplace of Tai Chi. He and is a Senior Instructor for the Tai Chi Union of Great Britain - which guarantees at least 20 years of high quality teaching experience. He has studied Tai Chi since 1980, and regularly studies with top world experts Grandmaster Chen XiaoWang (19th Generational head of the style); his son Chen YingJun; and his disciple Karel Koskuba. The Bristol Tai Chi Assossiation is also a member of the British Council for Chinese Martial Arts - the only official governing body for Chinese Martial Arts in the UK, and is affiliated to The Chinese Internal Arts Association - Princple instructor, Karel Koskuba.


We teach several classes in Chinese Internal Arts - Chen style Tai Chi Chuan (Taijiquan); YiQuan (I Chuan) and Chi Kung (QiGong).


Our classes run from the beginning of each month, and beginners are welcome to join then. The classes are appropriate for all ages and levels of fitness, and can be adapted to suit any disability. We also teach small groups and individuals in our home, and this is to be recommended for anyone suffering from a specific problem, especially at the beginning.


Highly effective as both a martial art and health giving system, YiQuan is now the fastest growing Chinese Internal Art in both China and America , this fascinating art is specially designed to be practiced by people of all levels of health and fitness. Visit for more about this Art.
