The Shenandoah Taijiquan Center was established for the purpose of bringing to all students the benefits of taijiquan/tai chi chuan and other related arts. These benefits include
development of lifetime fitness methods, enhancement of mind, harmony of spirit, coordination of mind and body and spirit, promotion of well-being,
and enrichment of life.
The Shenandoah Taijiquan Center was established in 1992 in Winchester, Virginia.
Facilities include a training hall and classroom, office, reception area, changing room, and a small store. The store supports STC programs and \
sells books, videos, clothing, and equipment such as weapons. Hours of operation coincide with scheduled classes or special events, or by appointment.
In addition to its primary emphasis on taijiquan, wushu, and qigong, the STC offers a variety of programs and special events. These include other
Chinese martial arts, associated health arts, and oriental cultural and philosophical studies. Students can participate in courses of varying length,
workshops, and private tutoring sessions for all programs.
Registration is open for Yang Family Tai Chi Chuan Celebration Winchester 2020
We will be monitoring the developing situation of COVID-19 and will be following CDC and
state guidelines as they are formulated and distributed over the coming weeks.
COVID-19 and classes, NEW ANNOUNCEMENT, CLASSES SUSPENDED temporarily
It is important to take seriously the advice to do whatever we can to contain the spread of COVID-19. Therefore, I am suspending all classes in Taijiquan, Qigong, Mindful Movement, Qigong Retreat Day, etc. I intend to follow guidelines requested or mandated by local, state, and national authorities.
Daily news informs us of developments regarding symptoms, numbers of cases, risk sectors, test availability, potential spread by asymptomatic carriers, and all the other areas of concern in this situation. Such news is troublesome and persuasive toward severe measures.
As announcements continue to be made urging self-quarantine and closures, it has become evident that it’s time to take care of ourselves now by discontinuing classes until it’s deemed safe to have students meet again. The immediate risk of becoming ill with a virus that has so many known and unknown perils overwhelms the long-term health benefits that can come about by participation in these arts.
We are finding ourselves in greatly altered circumstances that most of us have not experienced personally. Thank you for understanding as we go forward little by little.
Pat Rice, Director
Coach Owen will keep wushu students informed.
