"My goal as a teacher
is to have you experience the wonderful
of the Tai Chi Chuan movements,
and to help you develop
in your own personal best way"
"In the thirty years that I have been teaching and practicing Tai Chi Chuan, I have seen many benefit from its regular
practice over time. Improvements in breathing volume and blood oxygen levels, balance, flexibility, and general increased
health and stamina are some of the things that people tell me are the results of their time spent in the cultivation of the
Tai Chi Chuan movements...these are the most rewarding things a teacher can hear, and have kept me endeavoring to teach this

"As a tonic, Tai Chi Chuan can make us physically and mentally sound.
Its slow and gentle movements act to lubricate every part of the body and relax the mind. This ancient system renders
our thinking lucid, turns our temper gentle and brings us peace of mind that helps us to function well in our hectic world.
It enables a person to attain what the ancient Chinese sages called 'the Golden Mean', in which human desires
and frustrations are harnessed and transformed to benefit the individual. "
Master William C.C. Chen
