Aims
To promote authentic tai chi as a popular exercise for people of all ages in order to achieve the following objectives.

    Developing and disseminating the spirit of tai chi as a means of healthy activity.
    Communicating with other Tai Chi Families for exchanging experience and for promoting the essence, energy and spirit of life.
    Teaching tai chi with earnestness and modesty in order to maintain a harmonious community.
    Teaching every genuine tai chi movement to the point with its theory and in harmony with breathing. Every movement is led by the thought, which gives rise to the air which leads to the force.

 

History
The originator of tai chi was Master Chen Wang Ting, a villager of Chen Jia Gou Village in Honan Province, China. In the village lived 600 families with a population of 2,500. People of all ages in Chen Jia Gou played the original tai chi, the Chen family Tai Chi. Later on there were other tai chi families, such as the Yang Family, the Wu Family and the Sun Family. The tai chi of these families was originated from the Chen Tai Chi Family. Since Master Chen Wang Ting’s generation, the Chen Family tai chi technique has been passed down from generation to generation. In Chen Jia Gou Village, there were many celebrated tai chi experts. Master Chen Yu’s grandfather, Master Chen Fa’ke, had earned the title of ‘Tai Chi No. 1 Man’ after he had beaten all his opponents in 17 tournaments in Beijing during 17 days running. Now Master Chen Yu is the consultant of The Hong Kong Tai Chi Comprehensive Association. He comes to demonstrate tai chi at the annual dinner party marking the association’s anniversary. Occasionally he flies to Hong Kong from Beijing to correct tai chi participants’ movements and holds tai chi seminars or gives lectures about tai chi.

What is tai chi ?
Tai Chi is an exercise suitable for all ages. It can strengthen our physique and keep us healthy . Tai chi is also a martial art.  A Tai Chi expert can use a little soft force to win/defeat his opponent with a force ten times greater.
Pains result from blood circulation blockage.  Smooth blood circulation never causes pains.
 Relaxation helps blood circulate smoothly throughout the whole body and makes the body free from pains.
According to the study of the Chinese physicians, if the blood circulation and ‘qi’( life energy) circulate smoothly inside the body, there will be no pains, or vice versa.  In other words our bodies must get totally relaxed by playing tai chi to let blood and ‘Qi’ move smoothly inside the body.
The Chinese University of Hong Kong
A research from the Chinese University of Hong Kong shows that practising tai chi for 30-45 minutes daily can prevent osteoporosis and the loss of calcium in the bones, can improve muscular strength and flexibility, can improve balance and the immune system. It can also prevent people from falling down easily, resulting in bone fractures.
While playing tai chi, one should breathe slowly, deeply and naturally. Thus practising tai chi can cure/prevent from having: asthma, bronchitis, diabetes, heart diseases, hypertension, prostate disease and a number of unknown diseases.

 

8 Tai Chi Stages
The eight stages of learning tai chi at a steady pace were designed by The Hong Kong Tai Chi Comprehensive Association from elementary levels ( Level 1 to Level 3) to advanced levels( Level 4 to Level 8). The elementary levels focus on basic tai chi techniques. The advanced levels focus on learning every practical tai chi movement to the point and understanding the key points and theory of the movement. Apart from learning the tai chi techniques, participants should have the basic knowledge of Chinese culture and a keen sense of morality.
