The Australian College of Tai Chi and Qi Gong has been operating in the Sutherland Shire since 1996. As of 1st January 2018, it has been operating as a Sports Association with slightly different procedures.
As of the Annual meeting in November 2018, the Committee office-bearers are:
- President – Sam Li
- Secretary – Helen Lee
- Treasurer – Sam Law
The 4 additional committee members are: Andrew Rowlatt, Joyce Newbigging, Ken Dickenson and Martin Shipley.
FeesThere are 3 types:
- Annual membership fee of $10, due once per calendar year for everyone.
New students who did not enroll in Term 1 will still need to pay this fee, as registration covers insurance for both teachers and students.
- Annual Saturday Practice fee of $50, due once per calendar year for students attending group practice on one or more Saturdays in a calendar year.
- Class attendance fees, charged per term.
Next Overseas Trip: August 2020
The college is planning a 2 week trip to Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Tallinn (Estonia) starting mid-August 2020. To express interest, please proceed here.
Next Chance for Beginners to Start Tai Chi
Note: the next classes open to beginners start the week of 14-Oct-2019.
The College follows the NSW school calendar, with tai chi classes starting during the same week as NSW school starts. Although it is easiest for beginners to start at the beginning of a term, in some cases it may be possible to join mid-way through a term. Contact an Instructor

Successful Food for Health Workshop
In August 2012, the college presented a Food for Health Workshop. This workshop was well attended and very successful. Those who attended learned a great deal about how to use food and water for optimal health, and how to balance inner and external resources.
Understanding the resources that improve health is only the beginning. The next and most important step is practice. Now is the time to take action and practise by yourself. Combining the correct foods, quality water and oxygen (as discussed in the workshop) as outside resources with daily Qi Gong and Tai Chi will greatly improve and sustain your level of health.
Guinness World Record Attempt Successful
Congratulations to Ken Dickenson and Kevin Bartolo on their successful Guinness World Record attempt! The pair managed to beat the previously held record of 24 hours by one hour on Saturday 18th of March 2006 at Sutherland Hospital.
Over $3500.00 was raised for the hospital's heart and lung rehabilitation centre through raffles and sponsors. Many thanks to everyone who kindly gave their time and support.
