Authentic Temple Style Tai Chi

Authentic Temple Tai Chi

Taught only in the Chinese sacred mountain monasteries, Temple Style Tai Chi evolved from its 9th century origins to include the promotion of health and well-being; benefits so intently sought by millions in the world today. From its ancient beginnings, Temple Style Tai Chi was released to the Chinese public just 55 years ago through a select group of men.

One of these men was John Chung Li. Upon Grandmaster John Chung Li's passing, this unique and grand legacy was handed down to Grandmaster Robert Xavier. As a result, Acclaim Protective Arts is a privileged part of this rare and grand legacy directly affiliated with Grandmaster Robert Xavier.
