High Lands Tai Chi
How we began
Dr. Craig Beuttler began the Martial Arts Academy in Covington, Virginia when he moved to the
area in 1996. He taught Yang style Tai Chi, Qigong, and Kenpo Karate in both beginner and
advanced classes until his departure to return with his family to his native state of California in
July of 2003. Yang style Tai Chi is one of the most popular forms practiced in our country today.
The new High Lands Tai Chi was established in June 2003. by Robert Phillips, an advanced
student of Dr. Beuttler, is the instructor for the class. Class instruction includes Cheng Man
Chings 37 Hand Form, Yang style Fan and Cheng Man Ching's 37 Form with the Cane.
Keith Richmond is an instructor for the 37 Hand, Fan and Cane forms, and Qigong.
