Yang Family Tai Chi is my life.

I have been studying it since 2004 at Yang Cheng Fu Tai Chi Chuan Center São Paulo under the guidance of Roque Severino (Yang Yazhi) and Angela Soci (Yang Yajing) first generation disciples of Master Yang Jun.

Since 2008 I have been dedicating myself full time to Yang Family Tai Chi, practicing, giving classes, collaborating with YCF Tai Chi Chuan Center São Paulo in different tasks, and attending Master Yang Jun Seminars in São Paulo, Argentina and Italy.

I have been travelling to many cities in Brazil to teach Hand Form, Sword and Saber Seminars as well as to another Latin American countries like Argentina and Uruguay to Teach Push Hands and Saber.
