Tai Chi, Chi Gong, and More
“Tai Chi, Chi Gong, and More” classes train adults in the same systems and methods as the Ancient Chinese Masters for an incredibly effective way to improve your overall fitness, balance and centeredness, injury prevention and management, and to maximize your body’s efficiency and power.
You don’t have to know anything about Tai Chi or Internal Energy to begin this class. You don’t have to be in good shape. You don’t have to be anything expect willing to learn with an open mind. Just memorizing forms and patterns isn’t enough. I would like to invite you to come learn the methods and the “secrets” of Internal Energy. Derek Croley
READ ON TO LEARN ABOUT THE AMAZING BENEFIT INTERNAL POWER TRAINING HAS TO OFFER MEN AND WOMEN AT PREMIER MARTIAL ARTS
At Croley’s Premier Martial Arts in Asheville we teach a WACIMA (Worldwide Association for Chinese Internal Martial Arts) certified curriculum of authentic Tai Chi, Hsing Yi, Baqua, and Qi Gong with the guidance of Grand Master Guo Ming “George” Xu. WACIMA is a organization based in Shanghai, China and is a group of 12 masters who have spent their lives building the skills of authentic Internal Power Arts. And we would like to share them with you. Classes are taught by Derek Croley, who has lived and trained in China and studied Internal Martial Arts and Internal Energy for over 25 years.
This kind of lineage and experience is great for you! This way you know that what you are learning is real and will do what you want it to do!
This is a very traditional and authentic Chinese Internal Martial Art and Internal Energy Art class, and is only for those who are serious about learning the secrets of BODY AWARENESS, “CHI GOES THROUGH”, PURE INTERNAL POWER, EMPTY FORCE, and MIND ENERGY.
Our students benefit from:
Pain Reduction- Over the years we have had many, many students tell us they were able to reduce and in some cases end physical pain related to back problems of all kinds, neck problems, foot and knee problems, and many other old injuries or ailments that are painful.
Injury prevention – Learn how to move your body correctly and with proper alignment to avoid injury or to avoid further injury to an existing condition.
Greater Health and Well Being – Tai Chi has been proven to be of tremendous benefit to literally all of the systems of the body by aligning your breathing, pulse, and skeletal structure. This allows chi (internal energy) to flow smoothly as it should.
Focus and Mental Acuity – By practicing meditation and Tai Chi you will even find that your ability to focus will improve tremendously as well as your “mental endurance”- your ability to stay on task longer.
For hundreds of years people have been astounded by the mental, physical, and spiritual balance and well being that they enjoy through the study of Internal Power. Not to mention that it is one of the most effective self defense arts in existence (though that isn’t why we do it).
What is different about us?
Our Tai Chi and More classes are taught by Derek Croley. Derek has over 25 years of Tai Chi and related arts training. He has lived and trained in China, and gone back a few times for good measure. Now he trains directly under Xu Guo Ming, President of WACIMA. Derek brings a genuine understanding of authentic Chinese Martial Arts and has spend decades working on how to present it in a way that makes sense to people who grew up in the west. He has even written two books to help students grasp the deeper nature of Tai Chi and Internal Power.
In our class you will learn the secrets of Chinese Internal Martial Arts. And yes, there are secrets.
Chi Goes Through is how to become unmovable by having incoming force just pass right through you straight into the ground. If you need better balance this is it. If you need to deal with stress effectively this is it.
Pure Internal Power is the real secret. This is how to use your Internal to control your every move. This way you greatly increase your strength and power while greatly decreasing your risk of injury.
Empty Power is how to feel light and empty and free while keeping maximum power and efficiency.
Mind Energy is the power of focus, mental acuity, and mental sharpness. Your mind leads your chi, while your chi leads your body.

When I started taking Tai Chi classes a year ago at Croley’s Premier Martial Arts Center my motivation was to reduce my back pain. I had to rest horizontally for at least 30 minutes before class, then could barely make it through 45 minutes with considerable pain. I also had neck and shoulder pain and was frequently asking my husband for shoulder massages. Now I am taking up to three hour to hour and a half classes in a day in more than one discipline. I haven’t needed a shoulder massage in months and my back pain has decreased as my range of activities has increased. Knowing I might be able to defend myself in a hostile situation is secondary for me, but I like that also.

They say there are no secrets. But there are. The hard part is getting somebody to teach them to you. And then the harder part still is figuring out what is being communicated to you. And once you have the information, what do you do with it?
