Lee Style Taoist Arts

The Lee style is one of the oldest forms of Taoist training which was brought to the west in the 1930’s and it still embodies the traditional Taoist methods from before the modern era in China. Our style has maintained its independence from western philosophy and materialism and has not been mixed with techniques from elsewhere. We are the only Association in the world today still teaching the authentic and complete range of the Lee style Taoist Arts and following exactly the same syllabus as taught by Professor Chee Soo.

The main emphasis in Lee style T’ai Chi is on relaxation and health and it is based on Taoist philosophy.

Online T’ai Chi Training

We’ve used the latest motion capture technology and a 3D games engine to bring the benefits of a T’ai Chi class into your own home.

It’s a valuable resource for anyone attending our classes but it will also be suitable for people who don’t have access to a T’ai Chi teacher locally.

So that you can get proper feedback there will be fully qualified T’ai Chi masters on hand to give you advice and guide your progress. You can upload videos of your own training for assessment to measure your progress just like in a real T’ai Chi class. You can train any time of the day or night and as often as you like, you don’t have to wait for your weekly T’ai Chi session, and you can make contact with T’ai Chi students and experienced teachers from all over the world.
