Our website offers Tai Chi courses but does not provide medical advice. Any health-related concerns should be consulted with a qualified medical practitioner. Our courses are for educational and entertainment purposes only and do not constitute medical advice.

Practicing Tai Chi is a beneficial activity that can enhance physical health, improve flexibility, and enhance overall well-being. We strive to deliver high-quality courses and guidance to ensure that students can practice Tai Chi in the safest possible way.

However, we strongly encourage students to exercise humility and caution during the practice, strictly following our course structure and lesson plans. Students should select the appropriate level of exercise intensity according to their own physical condition and health. Practicing Tai Chi is voluntary, and students should understand that they bear some responsibility for their practice. In the event of any injury occurring during the practice while following our instructional videos, we shall not be held liable.

Our goal is to provide the best Tai Chi experience to our students while ensuring their health and safety. If you have any health concerns or doubts, it is advisable to seek advice from a medical professional or healthcare provider before commencing your practice. Please exercise caution and follow our guidance to ensure a safe and enjoyable Tai Chi journey.
