Group Wudang Classes

Which Class is Right for Me?

In 2022 we are taking the Tuesday Evening Tai Chi class back to the classroom and welcome beginners and experienced practitioners to this class. Our regular online classes are Thursday evening Qi Gong and Wednesday morning Kung Fu Foundations; the former is a gentle class and the latter is a medium-intensity strength-building class. The Tai Chi for Health class on Tuesday lunchtimes is back outside on Stoke Newington Common during the warmer months. All online classes are recorded and sent to those who miss lessons.

Students are welcome to train on their own using Lucia’s online tuition series or to book a private lesson; this is currently the only way to study Wudang Sword. If you have any questions about which class to book in for, feel free to get in contact, and to be kept informed of all the latest classes, just sign up for the newsletter at the bottom of the page.
