Become a Member of the Tai Chi Foundation

The Benefits of Membership

  • You directly support TCF’s mission to disseminate Tai Chi more widely
    Your contributions help TCF to fund the development and delivery of new trainings, and to support TCF affiliated schools making Tai Chi teaching more widely available worldwide.
  • You can attend TCF online classes either free or at special member-only rates
    There will a free ‘Time in the Art’ class most months (say 10 per year) and you pay a reduced member rate for TCF programs such as the Summer and Fall Online Intensives. These (and maybe other classes TBC) can be attended live or watched as recordings.
  • You have access to members-only content
    You will get access to additional pages on our website, not available to non-members, and can receive members-only blog posts, advance notice of upcoming events, and more.

TCF also reduces the renewal fee to $60 for a small number of ‘Limited Income’ Apprentices (Teachers) who have applied for financial support and had this approved by the TCF Board.
