YMAA Huntingdon Tai Chi became a provisional branch of Yang's Martial Arts Association (YMAA) in September of 2012 and a regular branch school in September of 2015. YMAA was founded by Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming (shown at left) in 1982. Dr. Phil Dunwoody (shown at right) studies Tai Chi yearly at the YMAA Retreat Center under the direction of Dr. Yang, his son and YMAA International Director Nicholas Yang, and Dr. Yang's disciples. Tai Chi Chuan (Taijiquan, 太极拳), commonly known as Tai Chi (Taiji), is a traditional style of Chinese Kung Fu. It is a series of martial-based movements that emphasize proper posture and breathing. As a moving meditation, Tai Chi improves balance and physical fitness, lowers stress, and teaches relaxation. As a martial art, Tai Chi is a traditional style of Kung Fu which includes kicks, strikes, joint-locks, takedowns, and weapons.
