Tai Chi Chuan or as it is commonly referred
to as Tai Chi is a system of health, rejuvenation and martial art.
It was developed around 1237 AD from principles of the I Ching and
the Five Elements.
There are several different styles all of which should have the
aim of harmonization of body, mind and spirit. The ultimate goal being
to reach a state of Oneness with the Tao.
I was very fortunate to have trained privately for over two and
a half years with Master Leo Su; learning the basics of two styles
of Tai Chi known as Chen and Wu, subsequently learning Tai Chi sword
and Yang from another Master.
Master Su was chosen by his village in China after an exhausting
series of tests to determine which person would receive the one way
ticket to New York.
The winner of this ticket had to be the one who was most proficient
in many areas of accomplishment.
Landing in New York penniless and unable to speak English, Master
Su was able to graduate from college here and subsequently attain
his PhD. He exemplifies the wisdom and patience of the legendary Chinese
Masters of old and it was a great honor to have been personally trained
