The Aiping Tai Chi & Qigong Center was established by Grandmaster Aiping Cheng, an internationally recognized authority on Chinese martial art forms who has earned Beijing’s highest martial arts honor, a rating of Top World Skill Level. She is widely considered to be one of the most knowledgeable and technically skilled practitioners of both Tai Chi and Wushu-KungFu in the world.
She has established the Center as a learning community where Americans can find new ways to improve the quality of their lives and become familiar with China’s cultural treasures. The Center is conveniently located near I-95 in Milford, Connecticut. Visitors are always welcome.
At the Center, Grandmaster Aiping offers adult classes for beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels. She also offers private lessons. She teaches a wide variety of courses, ranging from three styles of Tai Chi, Bagua, Xingyi, and Qigong. Students also have the opportunity to attend workshops on special topics, participate in public demonstrations, and compete in martial arts tournaments.
Grandmaster Aiping’s primary focus throughout is on health, well-being, order, balance and harmony. Though few will need to defend themselves against an assailant, all can use the lessons learned to better face the challenges of every day life.
The gentle flowing movements of Tai Chi are a safe and highly effective isometric exercise. Unlike many other forms of exercise, the brain must be engaged at all times. Regular Tai Chi practice can improve balance, strength, flexibility, memory, coordination, well-being, the ability to concentrate, and the ability to manage stress.
