T'ai Chi

A message from TOm

I have been training in the martial arts for 20 years.  In 2002 I had the good fortune to meet Master Zhang Zhao Xun who introduced me to Hun Yuan T’ai Chi.   I went on to attain instructor certification in T’ai Chi Quan; Moving for Better Balance (TCQ:MBB) from Dr. Fuzhong Li in 2011.  In 2017 I was Certified by Dr. Yang in his Evidence Based Qigong (EBQ) and Evidence Based Taiji (EBT) programs.  I continue to train regularly with Dr. Yang (Center for Taiji and Qigong Studies).


​While I believe that all exercise, when practiced appropriately, will improve health and balance to some degree, I practice and teach T’ai Chi because I believe it contributes to health, well being and improved balance more effectively than traditional forms of exercise.  I practice Hun Yuan T’ai Chi, in particular, and train with Dr. Yang because I believe both capture the essence of what T’ai Chi for health is about.   


I invite you to join me and my friends and students as we work and play to achieve our common goal of healthy and balanced lives. 


​Sincerely, 

Tom Cushing
