Sinclair Martial Arts - Orillia

New Tai Chi Class schedule - Orillia

New Tai chi schedule as of July 2, 2018.

Note that some classes will be held at Black Lotus Academy of Martial Arts and Fitness. They have just finished moving into their new 11,000 sq. ft. facility on Kitchener Street.

Private lessons can be shared. So, if you have a few people, you can create your own "group lesson." We can either keep it private or add it to the schedule.

Group Sessions

These are regular ongoing programs which allow students to join at any time. Students who miss a few classes will not generally affect the rest of the class, and will find it easy to resume.

Create your own group

If you have a group of people who can agree on an available time slot, you can split the cost of private lessons. As many as 10 people can be accommodated in a class.

House calls

The instructor can come to you, anywhere in Canada, or overseas.

Full-time and Part-time intensive training

Students come from around the World to train for various lengths of time. Some come for a day, a week, or a month. Some move here temporarily to train full-time or part-time.
The instructor will, on occasion, travel to Toronto to work with air travellers who are on a brief stopover.


Regular group lessons:

Typical group lesson rates vary from $55 per month to $165 per month depending on the number of classes and payment options. Or, you can create your own group lesson by splitting the cost of a private lesson amongst up to 10 friends.
Private lessons:

Private lesson rates vary from $ 45.00 per hour to $ 95.00 per hour depending on frequency, regularity, and payment options.
House Calls and Seminars
