History

1997-cartoon_named

Tai Chi Caledonia, an annual international event, was founded by Bob Lowey and Ronnie Robinson who, by that time, had already both spent many years actively participating in major internal arts gatherings in the UK and Europe.

In 1996 our first meeting was held in an army camp in the Scottish Highlands of Aviemore. Despite the barrack accommodation over 40 participants from the UK and Europe gathered to enjoy practising internal arts in the fresh country air. Being Scotland and being in the Highlands they had a chance to experience the legendary four seasons in one day. On our final day the weather went from beautiful spring sunshine to rain, sleet and snow!

By our third meeting we had moved to the University Campus of Stirling which has since been our internal arts home, for our annual gathering. The venue is ideally suited to our needs with private accommodation for all, spacious indoor or outdoor workspace, fresh green hills and lakes and an abundance of local wildlife.

Since we started Tai Chi Caledonia in 1996 many tai chi chuan and internal arts practitioners from the UK, Europe, Africa, America and Asia have come to Scotland to learn, teach and share their knowledge of internal arts.
