COVID-19 UPDATE: We are now open and teaching in most of our venues in Bournemouth. Classes in Oxford will resume in September. There are some changes to the published timetables so please contact us directly if you would like to attend a class. We can then also discuss wether we have places and explain safety measures that are now in place.


Welcome to Natural Elements Internal Martial Arts. We teach the arts of Chen Style Tai Chi, Shaolin Gong Fu & Qi Gong. Our passions are in the use of these disciplines and their philosophies, as a way to improve health and fitness, promote self growth and healing emotionally, mentally and physically, and to pass these teachings on to all; any age, any ability!

Our classes are based in Bournemouth, Christchurch, Poole & Oxford. We also travel nationwide for events, demonstrations and workshops. We are part of the Natural Elements Group, a small partnership consisting of the school, our Acupuncture and Tui Na Clinic and Reiki Treatments and Courses.

Our work reaches across a wide spectrum from our standard weekly classes and private sessions to educational days with schools and colleges. We teach individuals and groups with Aspergers Syndrome, learning disabilities, Parkinson's disease and more. Other groups include Cancer Survivorship Programmes, Pain Management groups with Poole Pain Management Unit and back to work programmes, all linked with the NHS. We have a number of partners including BH Live and the Bournemouth Chinese School working toward an integrated and healthy future.
