Yang Style Tai Chi

The art of Tai Chi has three aspects: Martial Art System, Traditional Chinese medicine, and Philosophy. With its roots in the philosophy of Tao, Tai Chi is based on the theory of Yin and Yang.

Yang style Tai Chi has its roots in Chen Style, the original Tai Chi. Beginning with Yang Lu Chan in the mid nineteenth century, three generations of the Yang family lifted Tai Chi from an art traditionally taught in closed circles, to a place of prominence in China. Subsequently, Tai Chi as we know it today was made a gift to the world through the inspired efforts of Yang Chen Fu, the 3rd generation Yang family member (1883-1936), whose refinements and openness regarding the inner teachings made Yang Tai Chi accessible to all, regardless of age or ability. His students brought the style to prominence in South East Asia and eventually to the west where Yang Tai Chi has become the most popular style taught around the world today.
