I met Master Zhang in 2005 at a Taiji gathering in Vancouver. At the time I had been without a teacher for some time. He was very open with his knowledge and understanding of taiji . He has studied taiji and the other Chinese martial arts his whole life, and is particularly fond of Chen style and spear. His approach was just what I needed when we met. The taiji form is one of three things he said, ” offense, defense or change of fighting posture”.
Several members of the seven stars club learnt the rudiments of the Chen style 56 under Master Zhang’s guidance, from 2005 to 2011.
