After learning the basic skills of Wushu (Chinese martial arts) from his father, he went on to study Chen-style Tai Chi under Master Wang Hai Jun, obtaining a Level 6 Tai Chi Master.

Master Kim, with over 30 years of experience in both Tai Chi and Qi Gong, Xi Quan has been able to master Chen’s Taiji quan series and Taiji theory knowledge, and can better master actual combat offensive and defensive skills.

He graduated from Guangxi National College of Health and Physical Education, receiving a Wushu and Tai Chi Coach Certification of China, Grade 1, First Degree. He has participated in many domestic and international Taijiquan competitions from an early age, specializing in fist forms and sword forms, and has won numerous gold medals.

Wu Heng Dong was honored to be made a 12th Generation Disciple of Chen Zhenglei, one of the four “Buddha’s Warrior Attendants (Si Jingang)”, the four outstanding exponents of the Chen family in Chenjiagou, who in December 1995 was recognized as one of Top Ten Martial Arts Masters of Present-Day living in China. He was given the name Chen De Hao in recognition of this accomplishment.

Master Kim specializes in teaching: Chen Style Taijiquan, Taiji theory, Tai Chi Qigong(internal strength), pushing hands (grappling), weapons, self-defense, Kungfu, and Sanda (Chinese traditional boxing). He has been teaching foreign students since 2000 and has taught people from numerous countries ranging in age from 4 to 88. He hopes that his students will return home to spread the teaching of Tai Chi to their own countries.

You can also go to Xanadu, a primitive minority village full of folk culture and tranquil rurality.

Food

Tai Chi, like Chinese medicine, is all about balance. Good health is maintained by, amongst other things, the ingredients which you take in as food, and the way in which you expend energy. The chef is a master of the wok and adheres to these principles.

Every day, teachers and students enjoy a well-balanced diet cooked in the traditional Chinese style and made from ingredients that are sourced fresh every day from the local farmers’ market. Each meal contains a large choice of both vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes. Food is not just important for its ingredients, but also for the way you eat, and in China, it is hard to imagine eating without sharing.

Everybody sits around the same table to share the ingredients of a meal eaten in common. Eating in China is a social event, so while you eat together, you share experiences from all walks of life, all ages, and every part of the world.
