Taiji or Tai chi (meaning grand ultimate) is a Chinese soft style internal martial art used for centuries in health, healing and longevity. Based on ancient principles of yin yang theory, philosophical laws of nature (the Tao), techniques of Chinese acupuncture and martial arts, authentic Chen Taiji is a holistic training method used to cultivate a strong body, mind and spirit through techniques of mental concentration with coordinated breath and body movements. Proper practice results in a supple body with improved postural alignment, balance and bone density. Taiji harmonizes external and internal energy flow which strengthen muscles, tendons and ligaments; while the internal spiraling energy massages internal organs and circulates qi energy-flow throughout the body. This is a suitable practice for students of all ages with various ailments and conditions.
Chen Taiji founded by Chen Wangting, is the oldest and parent form of all the styles of Taiji including Yang, Wu and Sun. The instructors are fortunate to have the opportunity to learn from Laoshi (teacher) Master Bosco Baek, the only disciple in America of Master Chen Bing and the direct descendant of its creator Chen Wangting. Master Bosco Baek teaches the authentic Chen Jia Gou (Chen Village) system and is a most knowledgeable and skillful teacher with precise attention to the details of alignment and structure that will challenge the most athletic and benefit the absolute beginner.
