I have been doing martial arts for nearly fifty years. For the past thirty years I have been practising Tai Chi Chuan and have been teaching for twenty years.
At my school I teach Yang Style Tai Chi Chuan as taught to me by Grandmaster Lin Feng-Chao who was a student of Cheng Man-Ching in the 60’s and 70’s in Taiwan. I learned Chinese martial arts and Chinese medicine and acupuncture from Dr.Lin for the past 24 years and we are still work together.
We practice according to the principles espoused by the old masters. Cheng Man Ching, Yang Cheng Fu, Wang Tsung-Yuei and the Commentary on Tai Chi Chuan. The teaching is according to the Tai Chi principles and Chinese medical philosophy so the focus is on health benefits and fitness. Many people have come to train with me and found that their health issues were resolved through practice. Diligent practice will increase flexibility and overall body strength and promote robustness and general good health and resistance to disease. Regular practice helps to slow the aging process. It also helps to reduces stress and increase concentration. Common health issues such a back pain, poor circulation and painful joints are often resolved within a short time.
Anyone of any age can begin Tai Chi and they will gradually become stronger and fitter. You simply do what you can manage to start with.
