Owner description: We are a traditional tai chi school, based in the beautiful area of Yangshuo. Our school is in a genuine Qing dynasty house in a small farming village at the entrance to the famous Yu-long scenic area. We offer training to all levels of students from those wishing to take there first steps into learning Tai Chi with no previous knowledge. And those looking for a chance to refine and study under true Tai chi masters in China, in a traditional old school enviroment.

Kim and ah wei taught our classes and it was a great experience. We stayed in the school as well which was great! The food is simple but the experience of sitting, eating and drink tea into the night with everyone is really enjoyable and you learn a lot. Very friendly and patient Teachers. The living conditions are quite basic, so the rooms aren't for someone looking for luxury. Met rly interesting people there as well

About the school: I was in school for 6 weeks to learn Tai chi. This school teaches Chen style of Tai chi and the teachers are Master Ping and Master Kim.
The full day classes are divided into 2 parts, morning 2 hrs and afternoon 2 hrs, both masters taking class at their respective time of the day. Their teaching is in English for foreigner students which is a welcome relief to understand the basics, theory and all small details of the movements. The school is open for you to train extra and practice on your own as well. The teachers are also helpful for any extra help around in Yangshuo. Overall a very good place to be to get an introduction to tai chi. Good food and made friends for life here.
About the location: The school is located in Yangshuo and has pristine views within few minutes of walk. Many of us also frequented the Yulong river for dips on sunny afternoons. Cycling is the most preferred way to commute around to the market, town or just to go around. You can find coffee shops, cake shops, supermarket and plentiful shopping at west street as well.
PS: recommend the breakfast and chocololate cake/brownie at Wada hostel. Also several other places like giggling tree for cakes, breakfast, famous cake shop of Mila and an Indian restaurant 'Ganga' for indians like me.

We had an introductory class with Master Ping yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed it with our 3 teenagers!
Booking and communication with Master Ping was very easy through their website.
The school is set back a little from the road, through a narrow passage. The class was outside, in a covered area. It lasted two hours and we had lunch afterwards. This was 'family style' with other students currently at the school. They were very accomodating for our daughter who cannot eat gluten and they made four dishes especially for her.
Very pleased we had this experience!

We spent 1 week at the school and were very happy. Teachers were wonderful and patient with us beginners :) you feel like at home with your family, staff is great, Kun's food is delicious and even the dog is adorable! We were sad we could have stayed only for 1 week because of the visas, it was a great experience and a great way to feel immersed in Chinese culture.

I trained here for two months (08/09/2016) as part of a six month kungfu trip through China and I couldn't wish for a better experience. Kim, Ping and Ah Wei are each excellent teachers. The classes were small, structured and also covered theory. Each of them took the time to explain the concepts and answer any questions we had. Classes always laster longer than the two hours that were planned. The food was delicious and after a month of eating lunch and dinner together the school really began to feel like a second home. Check out the recently opened speciality coffeeshop - Resti Café - a stone throw away (tip: try the home made cheesecake)!. Speaking from my own experience, as a beginner of Tai Chi, it was worth every penny. I can't recommend Yangshuo Traditional Tai Chi School any more highly and I will definitely come back in the future.
