Tai Chi Chuan

A friend is interested in Tai Chi Chuan of Miri so I went along to investigate.

I was first introduced to Mr. Yek who is the Master Trainer. He has been training TCC in Miri for more than 40 years with dedication and commitment.




Well organised training room for the trainees.

Mr. Yek watching the disciplined students doing their training.


A big mirror to enable the students look at their own reflection and moves of course.


This little boy of 7 is pretty good. He is called Ah Niu!!



Hope he is the future Jet Li!! He looks good and has a certain charisma.

It is said that senior citizens who practice Tai Chi is less prone to falling.

When I was in NTU, me and a group of Indian and Ang Mo women were doing tai Chi every morning. But we were doing mind and jaw exercise. So I didn't did Tai Chi Properly.

Interesting...many of us also refer to Oral Tai Chi Chuan in various dimensions....hahahahah...there is a good Tai Chi Chuan class in Auckland I heard under a certain Mr. Yek too.

I am not a discipline person, may be when I am really old, like my Ah Kung, who wakes up at 4 or 5 am, I might pick it up.

My Chinese friends in NTU later learn the real thing, I bought the shoes, but hardly wore them.

Hi Ann

I am sure you are more disciplined than you think....by the way I took up Qigong for a few months and when my friends left I left too....
