Eric Madsen, Certified Instructor

I have been a student of Yang Lao Shi since 2002 and have studied the Long Form, 49 Movement Competition Form, 16 Movement Form, Saber Form, Single Posture Staff, Sword Form, Push Hands, Standing Meditation, and Applications. I work hard and take my daily practice seriously. I strive to motivate students to dedicate a small amount of time every day to practice Taijiquan. I am also a regular contributor to the association journal and member of the editing/writing team for the Student Handbook.

Yang Lao Shi has been a skillful and inspirational teacher that I admire greatly. I try to emulate his teaching style and preserve the essence of what he has said in the years I’ve studied with him.
