The first substantial Centre for the Society in Europe hosts around 12 local classes during the week, and is filled with activity most weekends as it hosts intensives and workshops in Taoist Tai Chi internal arts and methods.

A former RAF Officers Mess on the southern outskirts of Colchester, the building was purchased in 1992 and adapted to provide a suitable practice hall and kitchen. It was clear from the start that we would need larger premises so in 2002 we undertook major building work including the extension of the practice hall.

The works closed the building for over two years but since its re-opening we have enjoyed more than double the practice space as well as a greatly extended and improved kitchen and additional residential facilities.

Additions and improvements have continued, with a children's play area and enhancements to the garden

The Centre acts as the administrative hub of the Society in GB and an important resource for Western Europe.
