Jim Marincic - Chief Instructor

Jim Marincic is the Chief Instructor of the ACT Tai Chi Chuan school. Jim has studied both Kung Fu and Tai Chi with a range of masters from England, Australia, China, and Taiwan over a thirty five year period. Jim has taught Tai Chi in Canberra for more than twenty years, twelve of those at the ANU.

Jim has taught many people who have progressed to become teachers of Tai Chi and Ba Gua and have commenced their own schools. He has also taught Tai Chi to many experienced practitioners of other martial arts disciplines.

Today, Jim teaches Tai Chi to:

  • senior women at the Senior Hall 101 Cowlishaw Street Tuggeranong ACT on Friday mornings at 10:00am
  • senior men at Men's Shed at Greenway ACT on Tuesday mornings at 9:00am

  • longer standing students at various venues in the ACT on Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday at sunrise

Jim's Tai Chi primarily derives from his long period of training with Erle Montaigue, who became a life long friend.
