Tai Chi is a martial art based on the theory of an ancient classic called “I Ching”.  Kinetic Tai Chi, created by Master Chien, is based on this ancient foundation coupled with contemporary physics of potential and kinetic energy. The training sessions include striking, throwing, and submission techniques. There are 10 levels of form to advance. Combining this advanced physical routine with Tai Chi’s rich thinking, students will benefit lifelong health, achieve mental superiority, and enjoy high level combat skills.

Master Chien is the founder of Kinetic Tai Chi and 2014 Kung Fu Master of USC Pacific Asia Museum. In 2013, he became the first instructor to teach Tai Chi at the legendary Gold’s Gym, Arcadia, CA.  Chien’s heavy focus on the principle of softness to conquer hardness has helped students to overcome not only the physical limitations, but their mental ones as well, thereby reach the ultimate level of “soft as silk and hard as steel.”
