Our Vision

Tai Chi, Kung Fu and Qi Gong are global resources for harmonizing humankind and the world.

Our Guiding Principles

We deeply honor the ancient traditions. We strive to preserve and promote the integrity of the lineage which connects us to ancient wisdom.

Our teachings and practices expand personal potential. The practices promote a sense of accomplishment; build strength of character and resilience; and build physical, mental, and spiritual health.

We believe that cultivating Chi promotes health. These ancient practices expand energy to accomplish goals and facilitate healing.

The practices are meant to be integrated into life. We encourage regular practice as a lifelong learning process for self-respect, personal development, and growth.

Community support is integral to our practice. We respect and honor the community of practice; we welcome all who are drawn to the teachings; and we promote respect and positive encouragement.
