Tai Chi Master
Tai Chi Quan is my destiny and vitally important activity. I have been practicing for more than 20 years. Since 2005 I have been exploring the Hunyuan Tai Chi developed by Feng Zhiqiang, the grandmaster of the 18th generation of Tai Chi Quan Chen style. In 2015 I became a disciple of teacher Pan Houchen who was a successor of grandmaster.
Grandmaster Fen Zhiqiang
The grandmaster Fen (1928-2012) gained his martial art skills from the hands of two great masters: Chen Fake, a grandmaster of 17th generation of Tai Chi Quan of Chen Style who changed that style significantly, and Hou Yajen, a famous specialist in Xinyi Liuhe and Chi Gong. Integrating tradition and innovation, grandmaster Feng created Chengchi Xinyi Hunyuan, which is the basis of both good health and self-defense skills.
The fundamental principle of Hunyuan Tai Chi is that promoting health and forming skills of self-defense, it focuses on health, cultivating calm and movements, emphasis on calm, developing simultaneously internal and external, makes stress on the internal.

My Teacher Pan Houchen
Master Pan Houchen was born in Shanghai in 1951. He has been practicing Tai Chi Quan for more than 50 years. He was the one of the personal disciple of grandmaster Feng Zhiqiang and became his successor after the death of grandmaster. He compiled several books of grandmaster dedicated to Hunyuan Tai Chi. Pan Laoshi is known as one of the best coachers of Hunyuan Tai Chi both in China and abroad. He teaches international groups from many countries.
In October 2015, after several years of practice under supervision of the Teacher, I was honored to become a personal disciple of the Master.
