Dr. M McLoughlin & Dr. FC Lin

My teacher, since 1992, is Grandmaster Lin Feng-Chao from Taiwan who has lived in Cape Town since 1991. He was a closed Door Disciple of Cheng Man Ching for many years until Cheng’s death. He learned Tai Chi and Chinese Medicine from Cheng. I still study and do research with Dr. Lin. As can be seen the Tai Chi Chuan lineage is direct and I am fourth generation from Yang Cheng Fu. This is not common in the West The Tai Chi we teach is according to original Chinese Philosophy and Natural Science Principles. We follow the rules and treatises as laid down by Yang Cheng Fu, Chen Man Ching and the Commentary of Zhang San Feng.
