Tai Chi With Us

Khor Style Tai Chi is modified Yang Style Tai Chi, this is because Yang Style Tai Chi favours right handed movements, and lacks some left side movements. Khor style Tai Chi addresses the imbalance with equal left & right movements. This brings it in line with the Tai Chi philosophy of the Yin Yang principle.

The Australian Academy of Tai Chi began in 1976 by Grandmaster Gary Khor who wanted to share his experience and passion of health through the ancient slow moving martial art Tai Chi. The Academy aims to offer the people of Australia "The exercise art of Tai Chi" with excellent resultant benefits such as good health, fitness, relaxation and the ability to move through life skilfully.

Grandmaster Gary Khor, Master Aaron Khor run classes in the Canada Bay Club in Five Dock, local Instructors run morning and night classes in the whole of New South Wales. Classes are also available in Queensland with Senior Master Rod Ferguson, Western Australia with Master Monika & Chief Instructor John Wong and New Zealand with Trish Miller. New Zealand is our latest expansion in the academy.
