GrandMaster Zhu Tiancai
19th Generation Successor of Chenjiagou Taijiquan



Master Zhu Tiancai's birthplace is in China, Henan, Chenjiagou. The master is the nineteenth generation disciple of the Chen Family Taijiquan. He started learning from Grand Master Chen Zhaopi and Grand Master Chen Zhaokui from a very young age. Having great passion and love for the martial art and under strict guidance from the two Grand Masters, Master Zhu Tiancai has perfectly mastered Chen Taijiquan. His display of Chen Taijiquan is described as "smooth flowing" and "softness," giving people watching the routine a beautiful and relaxed feeling.

With over fifty years of teaching experience, Master Zhu has compiled a set of teaching methodologies useful for both beginners and professionals. The art can be practiced as a form of basic exercise for health improvement and in the advanced stages can also be used as a defensive martial art.

Master Zhu has been traveling around the world teaching and imparting the art of Chen Taijiquan. His teaching is well known and received by international Wushu and Taiji organizations. His students are numerous and Master Zhu was honored as one of the four "Arhats" of Chen Taijiquan. He is also an international Chen Taijiquan Instructor.

Over the years, Master Zhu has written and published many books and video cds with detailed explanations and illustrations of Chen Taijiquan, including Swords, Push-hands, and many other aspects of the art.
