Taiji Academy Online
Taiji Academy Online is part of the Wen Wu Academy’s online teaching program established by Liang Dehua to promote authentic Yang-style Taijiquan (Tai Chi Chuan). Our goal is to preserve and spread the art passed down from one of China’s most authentic lineages and complete systems of Taijiquan, benefiting those who are interested in studying both the health and martial aspects of this profound art.
Taijiquan is a traditional Chinese martial art and is a part of Chinese cultural heritage. It is the most popular martial art practiced in China and around the world. Yang style Taijiquan is a profound internal martial art and is one of the major styles of Taijiquan founded by Yang Luchan.
Aside from being a martial art, Taijiquan helps to develop sound health and longevity. Practicing Taijiquan can increase your inner energy, strengthen your body, improve a peaceful mind as well as enabling you to develop profound martial art skills. Taijiquan can be practiced by everyone, regardless of size, age, or gender.
The benefits of Taijiquan are endless; however, the practice requires a significant investment of time, heart, and sincerity to follow a master who holds genuine knowledge passed down from an authentic lineage. Authentic Taijiquan is rare and hard to find; that is the reason why the majority of practitioners around the world are merely practicing external movements or randomly mixing bits and pieces of information from different lineages. They are barely scratching the surface.
The Taiji Academy Online reveals the authentic Taijiquan training that was previously only available inside of China. Our comprehensive online course enables students to continuously study Traditional Yang Taijiquan from the comfort of their homes without having to travel and follow their masters like in the old-times.
Liang Dehua is a native Chinese speaker, meaning that he can transmit the authentic knowledge of the arts to his students without losing any essential teachings typically lost in translation. Liang Dehua is also providing classes and workshops around the world, providing an opportunity for those who want to correct and extend their training, and become a part of our organization and teach Taiji.
