What we're about

To learn Power Taiji by Chen Bing Taiji Academy is to learn the authentic body mind healing of Taiji in its original form. Authentic Taiji from Chen village, the birth place of all Taiji is based on the The laws of nature(yin/yang balance), Chinese medicine or meridian system (acupuncture) and is used as a martial art Therefore It is a deep internal( fang song, silk reeling, elixir field) and external(forms) work out. Along with moves that are soft and slow and its opposite, fast and explosive. All are needed for ultimate healing and balance. Most people think of Taiji as soft slow moves in the park but authentic Taiji is also fast and explosive for the health benefits of clearing out blockages, elevating chi energy, and massaging internal organs. If not tapping into the internal healing heat of the dantien with precise alignment and mind body connection than its more of a "Taiji dance" than a deeply healing ,energizing therapeutic practice as Taiji was meant to be.

So if you're looking for a deep practice that's not only going to strengthen your body but powerfully align your mind and spirit as well. Then Chen Bing "Power Taiji" is for you!


Taiji or Tai chi meaning grand ultimate-is a Chinese soft style internal martial art used for centuries in health, healing and longevity. Based on ancient principles of yin yang theory, philosophical laws of nature, techniques of Chinese acupuncture and martial arts.

Proper practice results in a supple body with improved postural alignment, balance and bone density. Harmonizes external and internal energy flow which strengthen muscles, tendons and ligaments; while the internal spiraling energy massages internal organs and circulates qi energy flow throughout the body.

Chen taiji founded by Chen Wangting, is the oldest and parent form of all the styles of Taiji including Yang, Wu and Sun. We are fortunate to have the opportunity to learn from Laoshi (teacher) or Master Bosco Baek, the only disciple in America of Master Chen Bing, the direct descendant of its creator Chen Wangting. Master Bosco Baek teaches the authentic Chen Jia Gou (Chen Village) system and is a most knowledgeable and skillful teacher with precise attention to the details of alignment and structure that will challenge the most athletic and benefit the absolute beginner.
