Apr 24,2023 Great Wall New Media


Tai Ji Quan is executed by the vital energy that is moving throughout the body under the guidance of the willpower. Life knows no bounds and it is in Tai Ji Quan that the ultimate ways lie.

Tai Ji Quan or Tai Ji Boxing, a brilliant pearl of the Chinese culture, was inscribed into the UNESCO representative intangible cultural heritage list on December 17, 2020. At present, people from more than 150 countries and regions are doing Tai Ji Quan and more than 300 million people around the world are learning the fine traditional Chinese culture by doing Tai Ji Quan.


There are many schools of Tai Ji Quan in China. They include Yang, Chen, Sun, Wu, Wu Dang, and Zhao Bao. The Yang School is the most popular and much learned by fans in the world. It was created by the Yang family in the Ancient Town of Guangfu, in the Yongnian District, Handan City, Hebei Province. There, people can be seen doing Tai Ji Quan everywhere in town, at schools, and in parks…It has become the most appealing symbol of culture in Guangfu.


An avid lover of Tai Ji Quan is Shaun Corne Collen, an overseas communication officer of the website "". He came to learn the sport after watching the classic Chinese movie "Tai Ji Zhang Sanfeng" in Chinese, which was translated as "Tai-Chi Master" starred by Jet Li. Hearing that the successor to the Yang School of Tai Ji Quan is teaching at the former residence of Yang luchan who created the Yang School of Tai Ji Quan, he was eager to go there. Let's follow his footsteps, learn from the master, and feel the unique charm of Tai Ji Quan.
