The latest news

6th July - 13th July 2018 Tai Chi Caledonia - University of Stirling


A week of Tai Chi, Qigong and Chinese Internal Arts in the heart of Scotland. Several students of Wu Wei Studio will be attending the event. Sam and Yanira Masich are also going to be there teaching.

27th July - 1st August 2018 - Pole to Pole Taiji Summer Camp - Shetland


Shetland will be hosting this year's Pole to Pole Taiji Summer Camp, which is an exchange programme of Wu Wei Studio (Shetland - the very North of the UK) and the School of Tai Chi Chuan and Internal Arts (Brighton - the very South of the UK). Pole to Pole also welcomes other students of the Masich Internal Arts Method (MIAM) from across the globe. 


The aim of the event is to practise and share knowledge of the Yang Style curriculum taught by our teacher Master Sam Masich. The itinerary will be informal and flexible and all tuition will be free and led by volunteer instructors from around the UK/Europe.


Children and families are welcome. Childcare will be shared amongst the parents in the group so that everyone gets to train and spend time with the family. There will also be plenty of opportunity to explore Shetland.
