​​The mission of the U.S. Tai Chi Academy (USTCA) is to provide affordable instruction in the martial art of Taijiquan (Tai Chi) and Dan Haikou Kung Fu (DHKF) in a Christian environment devoid of any Eastern religion, mysticism, new age philosophy or symbolism.

                   WHY WE ARE LEADERS​​

​​The U.S. Tai Chi Academy is a leader in providing instruction in an environment encouraging a students growth regardless of individual strength and ability. If  you've ever wanted to study martial arts but have hesitated because of performance or social anxiety well then this is the school for you.

The TFP is available through private lessons, group lessons, and distant learning (video tutorials) for those unable to attend classes in Woodbridge or Lorton, Virginia. The TFP provides instruction in the following three Taijiquan forms: Ten Posture Form, Cheng Man-Ch'ing Form (also known as the Yang Style Short Form) and the Yang Style Long Form (108 postures). Upon completing and demonstrating proficiency in each form an official school certificate is issued.
