Deadly self-defense.

An open heart and clear mind.

Can the two really go together?

Yes, they absolutely can and the synergy could change your entire life.

Announcing Fire Fusion!

This spicy new class is a blend of Kung-fu and Tai Chi and balances the external and the internal energies. It will be mellow at times and explosive at others.

More intense than Bamboo Fusion, yet you’ll learn to calm your heart center and open your heart to greater compassion and joy.

And who couldn’t use a little more calm, compassion, and joy?

The combo of a whirlwind of kicks and punches with a beautiful traditional health practice is like nothing you've experienced before.

In addition to our Fire Fusion routine, class will also cover safety and cueing. Plus there is lots of time to practice these new movements and ask questions.

Fire Fusion will be co-taught by Audra Whitcomb, alongside DDR. Audra is a long-time student of DDR’s and is both a health and wellness coach, plus has taught TaijiFit for many years.

After seeing her daughter enjoying karate classes, Audra joined herself and was hooked! She soon discovered she has a love of all things martial arts, wellness, and teaching.

Two decades later, Audra has two second degree black belts (and a few other belts as well), and is a certified personal trainer as well as a martial arts instructor.

Frequently Asked Questions

Learn How it Works

What are the physical requirements?

Fire Fusion blends the slow and gentle Tai Chi with the more enthusiastic Shaolin Soft Fist Kung fu. So expect a more aerobic pace, balanced by the slow Tai Chi; explosive punches and stomps, balanced by slow Flow.

Do you offer Military Discounts?


Before any purchase, please reach out to our team at [email protected] and let them know that you’re a Veteran.

Because of the way our system works, we aren’t able to offer the 10% Military Discount in conjunction with another discount. Our TaijiFit Veterans have let us know that they enjoy using their Military Discount to purchase a Membership Tier, and then they can use their Membership Tier discount to purchase classes, courses, etc.

Do I need experience?

No experience is necessary to take this class.

What if I don't want to be an Instructor?

We have many people who choose to take a Fusion class, or even go through the entire Learning Path, just to deepen their own personal Tai Chi and TaijiFit practices. Much like any other Academy, just because you graduate doesn't mean you have to use your degree!

If you do want to be an Instructor but do not want to be part of the VA CCN, that's okay too. That is also entirely optional.

How much are the courses?

If you subscribe to a Membership Tier, the costs vary based on your Tier and if you've used your coupon code in the current quarter. We recommend choosing a Membership Tier, as some of them offer 100% off discounts provided you maintain the membership for a period of time.

If you do not have a Membership Tier, the costs are:

TaijiFit Fundamentals: $75
TaijiFit Academy Classes (101, 200, 300 and Fusions): $500

Note: All prices are in USD. All policies are stated on the purchase page of any TaijiFit product, course, membership, etc. and are subject to change at any time.

What equipment do I need?

You will need comfortable clothes and a willingness to learn.

You will also need a computer or tablet that has a camera, microphone, and speaker. You can use earbuds instead of a microphone and speaker.

We do require you to be on camera during the Live classes. These are hosted on Zoom, so you will also need a computer or tablet that is capable of using this software / app.
