Happy 2021 Lunar New Year to all the members of the Chinese Martial Arts Cheng-Ming Association.

Today is the second day of the 2021 lunar year, I wish you and your family all have a peaceful, auspicious, happy and healthy new year.

I would also take this opportunity to emphasize that we need to have a healthy body to achieve our potential. Under this note, we must value and take care of ourselves, and to encourage and unite each other to practice the Cheng-Ming martial arts in order to develop self-endurance and a strong healthy body and mind. With this ability,we can help more students to strengthen their body and mind and achieve their potentials.

Furthermore, the COVID-19 epidemic is not over yet. The vaccine control is not clear. We need to have good hygiene habits and a healthy body to survive the pandemic. The fastest way to enhance our physical strength and improve our mind is to practice Cheng-Ming martial arts everyday. There is an old saying in martial arts that we train our body so “No virus or poison can invade our body ,and No diseases can infect us.” This is also our motto. Let us practice Cheng-Ming martial arts everyday to achieve our utmost potential.

Happy Lunar Year 2021! Healthy body and peaceful Mind!

About Us

The Charlottesville T’ai Chi Center offers training in the Cheng-Ming System as taught by Great Grandmaster Wang Shu-Jin.

T’ai Chi Ch’uan (Taijiquan) is a martial art characterized by soft, slow flowing movements of the torso and arms coordinated with weight shifts and steps.

It emphasizes relaxation, and is a form of mindfulness meditation in motion. The benefits of T’ai Chi Ch’uan include improved balance, muscle tone and stress reduction. (Find out more…)

Teaching philosophy: These arts can best be passed down in a teacher-to-student relationship. We provide one-on-one instruction to all students. Classes are ongoing and students can start any time, and proceed at their own pace.

Mission: Charlottesville T’ai Chi Center is a nonprofit organization dedicated to teaching and promoting T’ai Chi Ch’uan and related internal martial arts. In addition to offering a full roster of classes, CTCC sponsors community-based programs that serve vulnerable populations, such as seniors, health care workers, and at-risk groups. Our instruction emphasizes the health benefits of T’ai Chi as well as its martial and meditative aspects. CTCC is also committed to training instructors in the Cheng Ming lineage in order to pass on these arts for the benefit of future generations.
