Short Stick T’ai Chi is a form of twenty-eight movements in the Yang Style, which promotes balance, flexibility, and coordination.  It can be practiced with walking sticks, canes and even umbrellas.  This practice helps to center the mind and improve focus and concentration.  It has an element of self-defense which can be learned by all.  Some exposure to T’ai Chi principles is a prerequisite.  Please bring a dowel or plain stick, about thirty-two inches in length, to class.  NOTE: Due to topic popularity, participants may take only one t’ai chi course per term.

Terry Call ( has been studying and teaching t’ai chi for sixteen years.  He has trained in several styles of hand form, weapons forms, and push hands.  He has a special interest in the art of t’ai chi as an exercise for active seniors.
