Yang Style Taijiquan

We teach traditional Yang style Taijiquan (or T'ai Chi Chuan). Our classes include the 24 section form, the 103 section form, the Taiji sabre and sword forms, Mr. Masich's two-man form and his two-man sword form, qigong (chi kung) and tui sou or push hands exercises.      

 

Taiji is a traditional Chinese martial art practiced for health, self-defense and as meditation. Taiji is an advanced form of qigong (energy work), part of traditional Chinese medicine. Taiji improves your posture and body mechanics, increases strength, flexibility and improves mental focus. Taiji is a low impact aerobic exercise. It is used for the prevention and treatment of cancer, heart problems, diabetes, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, osteoporosous and other health problems.      

 

The forms are practiced slowly to develop coordination, the whole body moves as one. Moving slower is also more strenuous.      

Taiji has many martial applications. The push hands training can teach you to deal with violence or force in a non-violent way.

I began studying Taiji in 1986. I met Sam Masich in 1990 and began to study with him. Mr. Masich taught me Taiji, qigong, tui sou, sword and sabre. I learned the 103 posture form, the sword and the sabre from Yang Zhen Duo. Dr. Yang Jwing-Ming taught me Taiji, qigong, sword, sabre, white crane and Qinna (Chin na)
