Learning Tai Chi with the Academy
The Tai Chi Academy, which has no religious connections, has been conducting courses at many convenient locations in Canberra since 1982. Chief Instructor Brett Wagland, who is the director of the Academy and Fontane Ip, assistant director, have studied with well respected teachers, including Grandmaster Fu Sheng Yuan, 5th generation ambassador of Yang Style.
Brett and Fontane also had the good fortune to train with the founder of the Hun Yuan Tai Chi system, Grandmaster Feng Zhi Qiang, Feng Xiu Qian (his daughter) and Chen Xiang (his senior disciple.)
Brett and Fontane are the creators and presenters of the television series "Let’s Get Fit", an innovative exercise program of 65 episodes, based on Tai Chi. This most popular program on Foxtel’s Lifestyle channel is the first of its kind in Australia. The series is also broadcast in Central America, South America and Europe.
The Academy aims to offer its students the very best Tai Chi training at an affordable price. Its professional instructors have successfully trained thousands of people of all ages and occupations to enjoy the many health benefits of Tai Chi.
