A Tai Chi seminar led by Ben Milton, a chief instructor who has been practicing Tai Chi for 35 years and is widely known in the UK and overseas, will be held at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David’s Townhill Campus.

The day long workshop is open to everyone regardless of experience and takes place on Sunday 14th of June between 10am-4pm. Attendees can book in advance online for £40 by visiting or by paying  £45 on the day.

Ben Milton is a direct linage 20th generation disciple of Grand Master Chen Xiao Wang, and holder of a 5th degree Duan Wei from the Chinese Wushu Association. The seminar will focus on the Chen Tai Chi foundation exercises with instructions and guidance on how to integrate techniques into forms of training

Lyndon Shirley, Martial Arts practitioner with over 25 years’ experience, who also works at UWTSD said: “I have studied Tai Chi for 30 years and during that time Ben is by far the best practitioner of the Martial Art I have come across. People who attend the seminar can expect an introduction to Tai Chi including breathing, sitting and posture techniques from a highly respected Tai Chi Master.”  

Tai Chi takes the established wisdom of the Chinese, the techniques of Tai Chi seek to establish a balanced and relaxed body structure. People who suffer from poor posture can benefit from an increased awareness of their body. Tai Chi exercises aim to redress the imbalances by improving the co-ordination and structure of the body.
