Uni classes are now held in the Rugby Fives court at the University Sports Centre on Iffley road. To get there from the Magdelen roundabout, take the 3rd exit (if coming from the town centre). A short way up Iffley Road there is a lane on your right, just after Stockmore St. on your left. Going to the very end of the lane, you will find a bicycle stand and the entrance to the centre where they should be able to point you in the right direction.

University classes consist of pushing hands exercises, freestyle pushing hands (grappling), martial techniques, padwork, and hand form. Classes are £4 and open to all members of Oxford University and students of other universities.

We'll be attempting to incorporate some aspects of both the martial and form classes, and are open to suggestions and opinions on which bits people enjoy the most/would like to concentrate on. Of course it goes without saying that if you have a burning desire to concentrate on either extreme, you can come along to the public classes for that aspect, but the uni classes should hopefully provide a happy balance for everyone. Your input on which parts of classes you find most beneficial is very welcome - you can let us know at taichi.club-AT-studentclubs.ox.ac.uk what you like and what you'd like to see changed. We're open to suggestions.

Everyone attending uni classes is required to read our Code of Conduct and Risk Assessment, however tedious it may seem.
