William Chi-Cheng Chen
William C. C. Chen was born in Chekiang, China. He started teaching Tai Chi Chuan at the beginning of the 1950s while training as a live-in student of the famous Great-Grandmaster Cheng Man-Ching who preferred to be called Professor Cheng. Besides being the youngest of Professor Cheng's senior student, he was also a favorite disciple
He has been a teacher since 1952 in Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Hawaii and West Coast. In 1965, he established the William C. C. Chen Tai Chi Chuan in New York City's Chelsea area. He is invited to give special seminars on his Body Mechanics of Tai Chi Chuan on a regular basis in Asia, southeast Asia, Europe and throughout the United States.
“Throughout all the years of my Tai Chi Chuan career, I have gained greatly in the knowledge and understanding of this unique form of martial art, which is one of the most effective for self-defense, as well as for physical fitness and mental well-being. I am really happy to share it with all those in my school and my workshops in different parts of the U.S.A. and Europe. I am happy that they appreciate my way of using the simplest, easiest and most common words, instead of the old terminology, to explain the mechanics and philosophy of Tai Chi Chuan.”
