Taijiquan
(T'ai Chi Ch'uan)

T'ai Chi Ch'uan or "Supreme Ultimate Boxing" is one of the finest products of Chinese culture and philosophy. Based upon the principles of the I Ching and the philosophy of Lao Tze (Tao Te Ching),T'ai Chi is a system of rounded, fluid, and balanced movements, created to relax the mind as well as the body. Once a secret art, T'ai Chi Ch'uan is now practiced for health, meditation, enjoyment, relaxation, and self-defense by millions people in China and around the world. T'ai Chi Ch'uan is well-known for its healing properties in China, and is often prescribed by doctors in conjunction with other treatments or when other methods have failed.

About C. Muhammad A. Haqq

I earned black belts in Shotokan Karate and Aikido. I began my study of T'ai Chi Ch'uan (Yang Style) under the direction of Master T.T. Liang in 1978. Master Liang was 76 years old and had been practicing T'ai Chi for over 30 years. I thank him for his time and the wealth of knowledge that he so graciously shared with me.
In 1979, I began my study of Wah Lum Tam Tui  with Master P. Chan in Boston, Massachusetts. I moved to Orlando, Florida in 1980 and became the first inhabitant of the Wah Lum Kung Fu Temple, first dormitory facility in the U.S. devoted to studying of Kung Fu. I enrolled in a special program for the training of professional kung fu instructors and devoted myself to the learning of the practice, principles, and philosophy of Chinese martial arts. For over four and one half years of rigorous training, I practiced Northern Praying Mantis Kung Fu, T'ai Chi Ch'uan (Chen and Yang Styles), a variety of Chinese weapons' forms and a array of Chi Kung exercises and meditations. I also taught classes and was the General Manger of the Wah Lum Kung Fu Temple, www.wahlum.com. Since then, I have given numerous demonstrations, lectures, workshops, and seminars around the country. My students' ages range from 4 to 70. T'ai Chi is truly a remarkable art. It is my sincere wish that my classes will help you to be healthy and at peace. Thank you.
