Tai Chi RichmondVA is an affiliate of The Tai Chi Foundation (TCF), a not-for-profit educational organization dedicated to promoting, funding and teaching programs relating to the embodiment of Tai Chi. The School of Tai Chi Chuan (STCC), as a subset of TCF, exists to continue the teaching of the Cheng Man-Ch’ing style of Tai Chi Chuan (Yang style short form) as passed down through Patrick Watson.

The School of Tai Chi Chuan today is composed of over 200 instructors teaching Tai Chi classes in 30 cities around the world. Each instructor follows the curriculum and team-teaching method developed by Patrick Watson.  All instructors have gone through the school’s full Tai Chi form curriculum, learning to teach each level, one third at a time.  As a Tai Chi teaching school, our School prepares our instructors through intensive trainings each year. This continued study helps instructors maintain consistency in method: Students can study at any of our branches and receive the same careful attention to the principles and details of the art of Cheng Man-Ch’ing ’s Yang Short Form.  All instructors have gone through the School of Tai Chi Chuan’s full Tai Chi form curriculum, learning to teach each level, one third at a time.  As a Tai Chi teaching school, the School prepares instructors through intensive trainings each year.
