Experimental College Classes

Not Enough? Take Some Classes!

Our great sagely teacher at the club also offers Tai Chi classes at the UC Davis Experimental College (aka the EC). We highly recommend anyone new to Tai Chi take a class at the EC so they can get a good foundation and learn the basics. While we're all willing to teach at the club, most of us are students too (not masters!) So sign up! and get your friends to come along, too!

Here is a quick list of classes offered at the Experimental College taught by Sifu Daniel Quincy this Fall Quarter 2009. More details and descriptions are available at the Experimental College website:
