Summary

The Australian based native Chinese teachers at TMS make a point of getting to know each student personally so as to understand their individual language requirements.

Our unique courses feature a combined Taichi and Mandarin instruction platform to help you learn the language while also improving your fitness and wellbeing, providing a comprehensive personal development opportunity.  Following each Mandarin study session (60 minutes) students engage in a moving meditation session for another hour to experience the authentic Chinese art of Taichi practice.

Please note however that for those who have limited time available, it is also possible to sign up for either Mandarin study or Taichi practice separately.

To expose students to a range of instructional approaches, our Mandarin teaching duties will be shared between a highly experienced native Chinese speaker and a successful and dedicated Australian teacher, each teaching on alternative class days.  On occasion both teachers will be present, which will open up opportunities for students to engage in a variety of novel, intuitive, and interactive educational experiences.

Please contact us with your needs or ideas. We will work together to design a suitable study plan for you.

Note: You will need to bring a hand towel, water bottle or a dry T-shirt for changing after Taichi and Wushu (aka Kung Fu) exercise.

Today we live in a fast paced society, full of pressures. It is not uncommon to hear people say that their body feels like an overworked machine, constantly in operation. While thought is occasionally given to slowing down to do some maintenance, because life is so busy, this idea is put on hold again and again.

With loving care, TMS has designed an effective course for you – Taichi and Wushu for Health. As urged by his masters, Dapeng is keen to share his knowledge and experience with any sincere individuals who are willing to work together to explore the spirit of Wushu and Tai Chi practice, and to investigate how these ancient cultivation methods contribute subtle effects on our body and mind. At the same time, this course provides an opportunity for you to train and interact with new friends in a mutually supporting manner, with the aim of enabling us to live a more active, diverse and balanced life style.

The combination provides you with a comprehensive physical and mental personal development opportunity. Each course will take place over a period of six-ten weeks with one hour of Mandarin study being followed by a further 60 minute session of Tai Chi moving meditation session. Business Mandarin focusses on giving you the linguistic and cultural knowledge you need to improve your ability to do business in China. Doing business in China, to a much greater extent than in Australia, depends on first establishing rapport and mutual trust through a series of initial meetings. The course will introduce you to the various cultural norms and practices that you need to be aware of and that will allow you to conduct yourself in a way that is perceived as polite, respectful, and trustworthy. Classes will also cover:

 

  • specialised business related vocabulary that you will need in your negotiations and draw attention to subtle, but important, differences between words with similar meanings.
  • Etiquette and communication skills on social occasion of welcoming, greeting, introduction, apology and congratulation.
  • Practical daily communication skills on shopping, traveling and travel means and appointment making.

Kung Fu for Families

Cohesion within the family unit is something we all strive for. We are experienced in helping parents and their children to explore the richness of the ancient Chinese art of Wushu (also known as or Kung Fu). Wushu can be exercised gently or vigorously and has health benefits for young and old. It teaches discipline to students who will acquire self-defense skills, and more importantly, lead to more confidence and improvements in both physical wellbeing and self-confidence. In these classes, students will be experiencing a series of essential and fundamental exercises (Jiben Gong), traditional Cha Quan and practical self-defense skills. Students will be selected to learn authentic weapons in their second year of practice. If you are ready to improve your fitness and spend quality time with your children, come and join our unique Kung Fu for Families program. We have an expert, accredited in Wushu in both China and Australia who will deliver this program.
