William C. C. Chen, born in 1933 in China, is one of the last living students of Professor Cheng Man-Ch’ing. Grandmaster William Chen has worldwide recognition through his practical approach to the Tai Chi Chuan. For more than 50 years he has been teaching and he still develops new ideas that provide beginners a refreshing clearness and gives old students deepening insights. Well-known metaphors he uses are: the three nails, winding, spiral energy, the bird, double heart.

We find it very special that our grandmaster, teacher and teacher of our teachers, at his respectable age, is coming to us again to train with us and guide our Tai Chi Chuan development.

Beginners have ‘priority’ on Friday evening. The weekend and Monday are for both beginners and advanced. Are you practicing a different Yang lineage and would you like to participate, please ask for information to Ceciel Kroes:
