The Internal Martial Arts Society was created to promote the Chinese internal arts of Taijiquan, Xingyiquan and Baguazhang at SOAS. These three self-defence styles are practiced as a unified system for strengthening the body’s natural structure, efficiently deconstructing our movements to economise our fluidity and developing simple striking power. This allows our overall health to improve by relieving stress and physical tensions created by bad habits as well as spending our energy on refining our whole self. We organise FREE informal sessions throughout the week (2-3 times on average) and weekly classes with our teacher.
Initially we work the fundamentals, such as;
The lessons will cover solo exercises, two-person drills focused on strengthening & grounding; sensitivity and simple self-defence techniques. All sessions will be informal, we practice both indoors and outdoors so come wearing comfortable clothes and shoes. No previous experience necessary as we are covering everything from a practical ground up approach, everyone is welcome!
