Chief Instructor - Bao Sen Liang

Bao Sen Liang is a martial arts enthusiast who has been practicing martial arts since he was nine years old. Over the years, he has trained under many teachers and cross paths with many renowned martial artists, seldom losing in his encounters. When he reached his twenties, he felt limited in his progress and through his extensive studies, realized that internal martial arts held the key to achieving a breakthrough in his training. Since tai chi is known to be the supreme art, he decided to pursue his training in tai chi.

There are many people who can teach tai chi, but a truly good teacher is rare and hard to find. He started learning Wu style and push hands from several masters who were considered very senior and reputable. Eventually he found a truly skilled and devoted teacher called Hong Yuan Luo.  Under Master Luo's instruction, he learned the proper methods of training and began to discover the true meaning of tai chi. Since then, his skills have progressed tremendously and continues to improve even up till today.

Bao Sen has been teaching tai chi now for over 25 years, with students in both China and Canada. He is appreciated  as a gifted and highly qualified instructor. His own fascination for tai chi combined with his patience and dedication in teaching, has helped students discover their own potential, progressing to high levels in their  tai chi skills, bringing health and wellness to their lives.
