Ng's lineage is from Lau Fat Mang and Chan Tzi Ching (c.1925).
Wu Style Tai Chi Chuan is one of the 3 major family styles of Tai Chi, the others being Yang and Chen. Tai Chi has martial art concepts & moving physical meditation combined and developed over generations to improve health, well-being, focus & relaxation through slow movements and deep breathing coordination. Build a sense of inner peace through flowing movements, breathing naturally, Yin and Yang balance, and developing a physical & mental concentration through a stronger mind/body connection. Application concepts of the movements are discussed to develop a stronger connection and a deeper understanding of intent within the classical Wu Style Tai Chi form. Take a break from your hectic daily pace and unplug from the noise. Reconnect with your inner self through Tai Chi and moving meditation.
