Diligent training imparts the practitioner with improved balance, concentration and agility. The practitioner will strengthen the legs, abdomen, tendons and the internal organs. They learn how to relax and relieve stress, how to maintain correct posture and how to properly move the body. This type of training confers good health and increased comfort.
Sifu Simon Chong was selected as his teacher’s successor in this unique synthesized martial system when his teacher saw he had a gift for the internal arts. Sifu Simon teaches Tai Chi Chuan as a wholistic path of life from the perspective of chi.
