They’ve got it down to a fine martial art!

The Windsor Place studio gets into the spirit of the event every year by holding a gratis class, said a spokesman for the school, and around 50 people showed up to take part in this year’s iteration.

“We see ourselves as part of a real world tai chi community,” said Ryan Milov-Cordoba, who trains at the school. “Turnout was good this year.”

The academy has been teaching the fighting arts at its Windsor Place studio for 20 years ago, and also practices near Prospect Park’s bandshell.

The center may return to the public plaza for the 2017 iteration, but is also considering hosting the free class in front of the Central Library nearby or in Brooklyn Bridge Park, Milov-Cordoba said.
