"Great site to learn tai chi. I study with Grandmaster Chen in NYC and find your site an excellent resource for self-study. I am also excited to explore the videos of Professor Cheng Man-ch'ing. I marveled to discover Dr. Ping-Siang Tao's Solo Push Hands Drill video."

Heather Waters, Ridgewood, NY




"A veritable Tai Chi candy store! So much great footage of Prof. Cheng Man-Ching. Your site is becoming an invaluable library. "

Timothy Pitt, Putnam Valley, NY




"Content Galaxy has been a fabulous resource for many of the people I play with. I recommend it to all my students and to all the people with whom I push hands. It is an easy way to review Master William Chen’s ideas and exercises. ... It also brings examples of Professor Cheng and Dr Tao; to show tai chi students a variety of expressions of tai chi chuan’s basic principles. Content Galaxy provides these all in one place. Every student of Professor Cheng Man Ching’s tai chi could benefit from using this."

Michael Krubiner, Los Angeles, CA




"Really enjoying the online videos recently released by William CC Chen. It is definitely worth paying and watching if you like tai chi chuan ... A ton of content on his version of training to throw punches and use of whole body power with Taiji principles. ... There is some additional content too with subscription: Cheng Man Ching teaching in NY videos, Dr. Ping-Siang Tao teaching and demo clips, Tiffany Chen fight videos, Max Chen fight videos, Josh Waitzkin push hands competition videos. "

"Having complete DVDs on your channel is a big help. I was learning the sword form from a DVD also on your site, but it got lost when I moved and now it's pretty expensive. Please keep up the valuable service you provide for us Taiji players."

Professor Cheng Man-Ching was one of the most influential figures in the evolution of Tai Chi Chuan. Around 1930, he began studying with Yang Chengfu (1883 - 1936), a direct descendant of Yang Luchan (1799 - 1872), who founded Yang-style Tai Chi Chuan. Through changes he made to the Yang Forms and his training of many world-renowned masters, Professor Cheng played a pivotal role in improving and popularizing Yang-Style Tai Chi.
