Our mission is to make people happier, healthier and be fearless in life. Together we practice Taichi as taught by our head master, Master Chen Bing. It starts by calming our mind, our body and releasing our tension. Then, we will train body and breathing awareness, self alignment and movement effectiveness. We will also be learning authentic Taichi forms including varies empty hand forms, sword form (for intermediate to advance students), silk reeling (energy circulation training), push hands (partner training), and fajing (explosive power applications). Basically, we help each other to attain the ultimate harmony for our mind and body. We practice to manage the ever changing state of the opposite forces in life commonly known in Chinese as 'Yin and Yang'; soft and hard, slow and fast, push and pull, and so on.
