To all the members of the International Cheng Ming Chinese Martial Arts Associations,
As we come to the end of 2021, we would like to send gratitude and blessings.
In 2021 we went through the raging pandemic in fear and worries together. Let’s keep practicing our martial arts together in the coming year.

In the new year 2022, we wish you happiness, safety, health, and great progress in your practice.

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.
