Water by its nature is calm. When water is acted upon by forces such as wind, gravity, or displacement it can carry terrific energy. Afterwards, water returns to being calm. In our tai chi practice we seek to realize the water in our own nature. When we surf we connect with the energy of the wave. Both are paths to our true nature.
Michael Krubiner has been a student of the Cheng Man Ching/ William CC Chen lineage of Yang style Tai Chi Chuan since the early 1970's. I started at Professor Cheng's Shr Jung school in New York City. My teachers include Professor Cheng's senior students: Maggie Newman, Ben Lo, Tam Gibbs, Ed Young, Da Liu, and Lou Kleinsmith.
Since 1978 I have been a disciple of Grandmaster William CC Chen, one of Professor Cheng's most celebrated senior students. I continue to study with Master Chen.
Since 1994 Master Chen has certified me to teach: the 60 movement Tai Chi form, Push-hands, Sword, and free fighting. I am now based in Los Angeles California, 91607.
I work with students at all levels of practice, for individual or group lessons.
