Yang Cheng Fu, third generation Master of the Yang Family,was one of the foremost Martial Artists of this century. Many of his students became well known including Cheng Man-Ching, Fu Zhongwen, Chen Wei-Ming, and Tung Ying-Chieh. The Yang style Tai Chi Chuan is the most popular form in China, the United States and throughout the world.

His son, Yang Zhen Duo, fourth generation Master, and great grandson, Yang Jun, are today continuing the tradition of teaching the original Yang Style movements of Yang Cheng Fu. To better understand the personal development of Yang Cheng Fu's students, it is helpful to study this Traditional Yang Style Form. Yang Zhen Duo will be teaching this summer in Quebec, Canada, Hemstead, New York and Troy,Michigan. No matter what form you study now you'll better understand it by experiencing Yang Cheng Fu's form.

Bill Walsh began his formal training in 1977 in New York City at Cheng Man-Ching's school, the Shih Jung Tai Chi Chuan Study Group. He studied form, sword and push hands with the late Lou Kleinsmith and continued push hands training with Stanley Israel.

Bill started studying with the Yang Family in 1993. Yang Zhenduo has authorized Bill to teach Hand Form, Sword and Saber. He has competed in a half-dozen tournaments in Handform, Saber, Sword and Push Hands. A recognized "player", Bill considers competition an important opportunity to learn about oneself under pressure.
