The Eight Ways™ (begins September 7 at 11:00 am, taught by Paul Campbell) Professor Cheng distilled the Tai Chi form into eight movements that are very functional if you have injuries in joints, balance issues, or joint replacement procedures, or if you have been away from exercise and want to regain mobility and stamina. By making the movements less complex while adding imagery, it allows you to go deeper internally and can also be a valuable training for advanced students.
Paul has been teaching classes on Zoom since July 2020. We are working to post them all for our students, here on our website.
There is a set of 6 videos, The Five Categories of Principle, from July 8-August 12, 2020, currently available. More will be added soon.

The Gainesville T'ai Chi Center of Gainesville, Florida, teaches the Yang family short form developed by Professor Cheng Man-Ch'ing. We are affiliated with The T'ai Chi Foundation. We offer comprehensive series of classes for beginners and more advanced students. The full form of T'ai Chi Chuan, which is popularly known in the West as T'ai Chi, can be learned in the Beginning Form courses (30 one-hour classes), divided into thirds that we refer to as B1, B2, and B3. Our principal teacher, Paul Campbell, has been teaching T'ai Chi for over 40 years. He is a guiding teacher in the The School of T'ai Chi, which has over 30 branches and 200 teachers worldwide.
NOTE TO THOSE INTERESTED IN STARTING CLASSES AT OUR CENTER IN THE FUTURE:
The beginning sequence teaches the Yang style short form step-by-step in one hour classes that meet once per week over 30 weeks in three 10-week blocks. Cost is $120 for a 10-week block. Tai chi is gentle on the body, and most everyone is physically capable of practicing it. Tai chi is a path to fuller relaxation and balance in the world. No equipment is needed besides flat soled shoes and loose clothing. New classes are typically offered in September and January and April. Please email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone ((352) 371-3718) the Center, and let us know of your interest. We post announcements of new classes on this page.
