  • Wang Zhi Ping is the Principal of the School .

    He has been practising Yang and Chen Style Tai Chi Chuan for the last twenty – six years and has taught for most of those years as well.

    His practise is beautiful to watch and extremely inspirational.

    He fills his movements with what he calls an open heart yet is technically perfectionist with the form at the same time.

    As a teacher though it is also his good spirit, patience and attention to detail that have made him stand out as a superb Tai Chi teacher.

    As one student remarked he enthuses over good movement and posture expressing his level of pleasure in a delightfully vocal and charismatic way that leaps across cultural barriers. He enjoys the experience of movement in such a beautiful inspiring way that all around him want to share a little of what he has.

    At he same time he is a very serious teacher, and once the student has move past the beginning stages he can be extremely demanding, pushing the student to work and work, whether it be in terms of leg strenghening doing Chan Si Gong or repeated performances of tiny movements.

    Wang Zhi Ping is a 20th Generation Chen Tai Chi Master.

    His teacher was Wang Zhen Hai, a Kungfu and Chen Tai Chi Master whose main teacher was Chen Zhao Pei, the previous generation main lineage holder of the Chen family.

    Chen Zhao Pei’s teacher was Chen Fake, perhaps the most famous Chen Master from the past.

    Teachers Training in a Chen Style

    Wang Zhi Ping talks little of all this and prefers that students simply look at his Tai Chi movement with their own eyes.

    Chang Chang
    Chang Chang – Chen Broadsword

    Chang Chang is a resident teacher at the school.

    He is from Henan Province in China where Chen Tai Chi started and is from a Tai Chi family.

    His grandfather, father, mother and brother all practice Chen Tai Chi.

    Chang Chang started his Tai Chi training at the age of 8 and went on to study at a Chen Training School in Henan.

    His Tai Chi is extremely relaxed and graceful and he moves with amazing agility.He is an expert in both Chen and yang styles but is outstanding and highly medal – ed for his Yang performances. He has been successful in several major competitions in China.

    Chen He Chang
    Chen He Chang – Chen Sword

    Chen He Chang, is a 21st generation Chen practioner, from the Henan province and studied Chen training school. He began his training at the age of 6.

    He is an amazing example of the power of real Tai Chi as despite not having the appearance at least of a strong muscular body, he moves with terrific strength.

    His Fah Jing ability is superb and it is impossible not to be impressed by the quality of his Lao Jia Er Lu which does rather take your breath awsy. (Er Lu contains an awful lot of Fah jing explosive movements)

    His teaching is enthusiastic and patient and he also has a good sense of humour which helps a lot when working hour after hour on difficult movements

    Tian Gan
    Tian Gan – Chen Sabre

    Tian Gan is from Henan Province in China and studied Tai Chi at a Chen Training School in Henan from the age of 10.

    His Tai Chi is also beautiful to watch.

    Tian Gan is very interested in the martial side of Chen Tai Chi and this shows in his enthusiasm for demonstrating applications for the movements and in his marial precision while performing the Chen.
