Thanet Baguazhang

Zhèng Wǔ Mén Bagua club has a class in Ramsgate in Kent. For more information about the classes and tuition available read content in this Thanet Baguazhang section.

The Thanet group has been established for two years now and is run by Nick Cumber (registered Tai Chi Union of Great Britain Level A instructor), and on hand are Gary Short and Glenn Avery with plenty of experience of the Gao Yi-Sheng Baguazhang syllabus.

Classes are light on etiquette and heavy on practical play. Classes will often focus on certain aspects for several weeks before moving on. This way the classes remain fresh and often return to core basics.

We have a complete syllabus to teach with gradings for the more serious students.

Structure of a class of Bagua and Xingyi in Ramsgate

So you want to know what classes can be like? Some of the things we list wont be familiar to a lot of you but they will be once you start learning. Our class formats are relaxed in many ways but the core of it is quite traditional, which some may think is old fashioned, but in fact its quite the opposite in terms of movement coaching!
