Preparing teachers to work with veterans, seniors and corporate wellness.
TaijiFit International offers a professional Tai Chi teacher training program. We oversee the training and credentialing of Tai Chi teachers for veterans. We are the only educational course that has been recognized by all fitness certification organizations as well as the national association for acupuncture and Oriental medicine. TaijiFit International invites you to join the fastest growing network of certified Tai Chi instructors.
The TaijiFit Basic Instructor training will teach you how to lead others into a Tai Chi experience easily, effortlessly and enjoyably. Your students don't have to memorize any complex movements, principles or routines - and are never corrected or criticized.
You will learn how to lead a class based on a concept we call "FLOW," using our special cueing and assessment method. In the full training (Parts A & B) you'll learn all the essential techniques and philosophy of the method, along with a beginning repertoire of 18 movements, and two beginners' routines.

As a certified TaijiFit instructor, you will have the opportunity to become part of the nationwide network of instructors who work with our healthcare and corporate wellness partners. TaijiFit has entered into a unique relationship with the country's largest hospital system and the largest health care provider to provide community Tai Chi classes to more than 9 million eligible members. The purpose of the Instructors Network is to assist you in growing your business by giving you access and promoting you to this special population. We are currently recruiting approximately 1000 instructors for classes in our target states.
NOTE: Being a part of the network means you meet the highest professional standards of Tai Chi teachers. Requirements include being a fully certified TaijiFit instructor, passing a criminal background check, providing proof of minimum liability insurance, and having a business license for your state. The annual license fee for maintaining membership in the network is $99.
Part A of your training is the foundation course, to teach you the fundamentals of TaijiFit method and philosophy. This segment is roughly 60 hours of training and study - based on the average time most students take to read through the manual, review all the videos in the library, attend the online sessions (we have online classes every day to select from), attending the live weekend training (if that is your option) and of course self-practice. You will learn about the Flow Theory, Tai Chi biomechanics, 5-part Qi-cueing and of course the first Basic Flow routine.
Once you've completed Part A, you'll take a PRACTICE TEST, and then go on to the next part of the curriculum. Part B of your Basic Training is approximately 40 hours of coursework and practice. In this segment, you will be introduced to the concept of "no corrections" in TaijiFit. Instead we use alternative formats. In fact, you'll learn a second routine that your students can do seated in chairs. You'll also learn observation and assessment skills, safety standards and how to represent the TaijiFit brand. Best of all, in Part B of your training you will be assigned a personal mentor - and advanced TaijiFit teacher - to guide you to passing your final exam.
