Welcome to Shen Long T’ai Chi Ch’uan
Welcome to the U.S.A. Chapter of Shen Long T’ai Chi Ch’uan Association, a member of the International Shen Long T’ai Chi Association founded by Grandmaster Wu Kuo-chung of Taiwan. Our goal, our mission, is to promote the study of traditional T’ai Chi Ch’uan in the U.S. We have three established schools in the States: Kenosha, Wisconsin; Northfield, Illinois; and Orlando, Florida.
Shen Long T’ai Chi is based on the principles of relaxation, balance, awareness of movement, centering, and development of internal energy, Chi. While T’ai Chi Ch’uan can be a profound system of health and self defense, most people begin their practice of T’ai Chi for the relaxation and feelings of peace and tranquility it instills. To learn the combination of elements in T’ai Chi requires a unity of mind, body, and spirit not found in many other disciplines. T’ai Chi Ch’uan trains our mind and our awareness to help our bodies relax. The slow meditative movement of T’ai Chi helps improve balance and flexibility, while developing and balancing our Chi.
