The close door leesons is 16 years onwards no maximum age.There's seprate children lessons for under 16 years. What I’ve notice in hong kong more recently people age 45 - 50 years taking up mantis kung fu which usually is more seen in tai chi groups. I personally think this because mantis a great system for strengthening the body and making it stronger.
