Fort Collins Tai Chi Academy

Established in 1980

Welcome to the Fort Collins Tai Chi Academy! We have been training students in Tai Chi Chuan, an Internal Chinese Martial Art, for over thirty years.


Dave Mishlove has studied Tai Chi for 43 years, training in Yang & Chen Style.  Before that he spent 7 years studying Shaolin from Green Dragon Society of Chicago, receiving a Master in 'Wu Chi Tao' Chuan Kung-Fu.  He has received Tai Chi Training under numerous Tai Chi Masters, beginning with Yang Style in 1972, and starting Chen Style in 1990.


Small group, more individual approach with one-on-one instruction, emphasizing internal aspects of development at all levels, (as opposed to rote memorization of movement in large group settings).


The school is open M-F from 4pm-6pm for new students.
