Self Defense in Santa Fe, NM
While some people might believe that self-defense involves nothing but fighting, the Tai Chi Chuan Institute teaches its students that physical violence should always be the last resort. We strive to instruct our customers in Santa Fe, NM, in multiple methods of defending themselves, many of which don't involve physical confrontation or combat.
Our dedicated, skilled instructors will teach you:
- Physical self-defense moves
- Methods of de-escalating a situation
- Ways to deal with possible attack scenarios
We value scheduling flexibility, so you'll be able to enroll in a class that takes place at the time most convenient for you.
Don't wait until you're in a potentially dangerous situation before you learn self-defense; call the Tai Chi Chuan Institute in Santa Fe to join one of our martial arts courses instead. Our traditional method of instruction is to teach our students to always avoid an altercation if possible but to be ready for one if it occurs.

Great artial arts studio
Many good teachers, great spirit.
Master Walker has done wonders with Rick and his damencia, he looks so forward to it. He also has helped our granddaughter Amber with her karate, she also looks forward to her class.
A Great Place To Be
I'm relatively new to martial arts, just rounding the corner to one-year. Master Walker and all his instructors are extremely knowledgeable with years of experience. The atmosphere is very welcoming, with people of all ages and skill levels attending classes. Many times, youngsters who are 50 years younger than I am, but at a much high level will help me with something I am trying to learn---because that is the tradition and sense of respect that is handed down. Master Walker is a superlative teacher, who is very supportive, encouraging, and tough---but hey, martial arts are for people who are personal winners, not quitters. I highly recommend the Tai Chi Chun Institute.
In regards to the Tai Chi Chuan Institute I'm reminded of a saying made by the original inventors of Democracy (the ancient Greeks), "In vain do you build the City if you do not first build the Citizen". I see that attended to every week at the Institute. Whether the student is in elementary school, or a retiree, the focus on establishing consciously viable person-hood, with principles applicable to every aspect of life, and not only to self defense, is at the heart of that training community. And for every success in training there the greater community benefits by having a physically, mentally, and morally stronger individual among them. Grand Master Daniel Ray Walker readily shares his rich experience with specific attention to the immediate needs of the student. That feature of the Dojon distinguishes it from an average 'black belt mill' where technical merit and rote promotion is standard. At the Tai Chi Chuan Institute we get to develop from where we are, as who we are, without merely conforming to formal expectations alone. The place breeds confidence, instills competence, merging discipline with fun, determination with caring, rigor with respect, making the habits of decent citizenship second nature.
