Tai Chi and Chi Kung at Chomon House
A personal style of teaching; not at all like the more commonly found clubs or groups that meet in cold, characterless halls

To arrange a no strings attached, informal, free of charge 1hr demo meeting with Daichi Gary in the Chomon House Dojo, located at the junction of The Avenue and London Road in Southampton please phone: (023) 80 837 145 or email:

Please do note that some session spots are already taken up by ongoing tuition with existing students. Therefore, to arrange your free demo meeting and possible ongoing tuition at the Chomon House Dojo please just identify three suitable time and day options from the list above and I am sure that we can find a session time that suits both parties.

Sessions are of one hour duration, same day and time every week and depending upon the individual, sessions might also include discussions on related and associated matters such as Meditation, Taoism and Buddhism.

Cost: £40 per month paid a month in advance (following free demo meeting).

Sessions changed or canceled with 24hr notice incur no cash loss. My system is flexible and sessions can be arranged to fit around your work shift pattern and if necessary even be held at different times or on different days in the week.

Module One: First, a 6 week 'foundation' course on Traditional Chinese Medicine Chi Kung (aka: Qigong) standing and breathing exercises.
This 6 week module may be extended to 8 weeks and taken separately as complete course on Chi Kung.

Module Two: If you choose then to continue training there follows a 5/6 month module of detailed guidance to the conclusion of the first part of the Yang Long Form as a 'stand-alone' solo form.

Module Three: Tuition to the completion of the three 'joined up' parts of the Classic Yang Long Form.

Gary Robinson began teaching Tai Chi and Chi Kung in 1996. At first he rented rooms and taught groups, but when he became disillusioned with this 'general' approach, as if one size fits all, he began to develop a 'home-dajo' where he could meet with student individually, privately and in comfortable, conducive and familiar surroundings. When he moved house in 2003 he brought the home-dojo with him to Chomon House and has continued to met there with students ever since.

In 2012 Chomon House resident Gary Robinson became a ordained as Jodo Shinshu Buddhist priest and given the title and name Reverend Daichi by the Nishi Hongwanji organization in Kyoto, Japan. Following this, Chomon House was given the honor of organizing the 17th biennial European Shin Buddhist Conference. To coincide with this significant event Chomon House became designated as the national H.Q. of the Shin Buddhist Fellowship UK. The International Association of Buddhist Culture, Kyoto, Japan supports the Shin Buddhist Fellowship UK. Chomon House, 6 Southcliff Road, Southampton SO14 6FH.
