Huntingdon Tai Chi
YMAA Huntingdon Tai Chi teaches the Yang style Tai Chi Long form as taught by Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming (shown above). You should consider studying Tai Chi if you would like to improve your physical fitness and balance, learn to relax under stress, or are interested in learning a traditional style of Chinese Kung Fu.
Effective 9/1/2012, Huntingdon Tai Chi became YMAA Huntingdon Tai Chi, a provisional branch of Yang's Martial Arts Association (YMAA). 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, Jwing-Ming. Tai Chi Chuan (Taijiquan, 太极拳), commonly known as Tai Chi (Taiji), is a Chinese martial art which is also practiced today for health reasons. 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 teaches kicks, strikes, joint-locks, and takedowns.
