Tai Chi & Chi Gung

If you seek a more internal approach to Martial Arts, Master Diederik Haneveld is offering his 30 years experience to those who wish to begin Tai Chi and Chi Gung.

By definition, Tai Chi means "Grand Ultimate" and is considered so by many Martial Arts practitioners, worldwide. Less dynamic than the external arts, Tai Chi fosters balance, stability, patience and awareness on a road to what is known as "True Power".
