Celebration International Yang Family
Tai Chi Chuan Association 10 Years Anniversary
In August 1999, the International Yang Family Tai Chi Chuan Association was formed in Seattle, Washington. This year marks our 10 year anniversary. To commemorate this, we are organizing an International Tai Chi Chuan Symposium.
The Symposium will focus on health, education and cultural exchange. We were bring the Grand Masters of the five styles together as one family. This was the first time ever that all five style representatives will come together in the United States. We also invited University Professors and Doctors so they can address Tai Chi Chuan’s medical benefits, from a scientific view.
The theme of this Symposium is “Traditional Tai Chi Chuan – Discover the Wisdom of the Masters.” It is designed to bring together the world’s foremost authorities on each of the five Traditional Chinese Family Schools of Tai Chi Chuan. This event was held at Vanderbilt University from July 2nd to 11th, 2009 in Nashville, Tennessee.
