Theory lessons (in progress)

Course only for International Association's members who regularly attend Taijiquan, taijidao, taijijian and tui shou lessons, in conformity with their level.
Aspiring teachers as well as having to follow their own weekly lessons (s. classes), including Taijiquan, taijidao, taijijian, tui shou (2 and half hours per week = 75 hours per year) and to teach, with supervision, at least 1 course per year (30 les. = 45 hours).
The whole course requires great commitment, and therefore it is free. I take the opportunity of thanking all partecipants who in making this commitment and starting this course, are greatly helping the Yang Chengfu Center of Firenze and spreading Yang Family Taijiquan.
