Master Huang’s Taichi School

Taichi taught me how to move. Taichi taught me how to walk. It taught me how to stand. It taught me how to see. It taught me agility, it taught me slowness. Feather-lightness and boulder-weight. Sharp alertness and inner peace. The Tao redefined me. It taught me how to be.

Master Huang is on the left, Dominique, a close Taichi brother, in the center, and I’m on the right. My eternal gratitude towards this school and teaching.

Chen Village

A long time ago in this mythical village, a miracle took place. Taichi was born. The original style was founded by the Chen Family and the lineage has survived until today. A competition takes place here every year, gathering thousands of Taichi masters from around the world.
