- Academy

The Galway Tai Chi Academy runs a foundation teacher training course for 3 years which you can join after you have completed 3 years study at the Academy. So when you graduate you will have 6 years experience of Tai Chi and have assisted in weekly classes for 3 years.

This is the recommended procedure but there are also flexible options for those traveling from abroad to study at the Academy or for those who wish to do more intensive training to graduate sooner.Some graduates even choose to train for 5-6 years as an assistant and are always able to learn more
