Rochester T'ai Chi Ch'uan Center

Rochester T'ai Chi Ch'uan Center
The Rochester T'ai Chi Ch'uan Center is a not-for-profit educational institution, located at 80 Rockwood Pl. Rochester NY 14610, incorporated in 1982, whose mission is to promote good health and longevity for its students and members through the instruction and practice of T'ai Chi Ch'uan and its related Internal Arts. We maintain an open learning atmosphere, combining ancient tradition with modern instructional techniques, and encourage an open exchange of information from teachers of all Martial Arts and disciplines. Our vision is to continue and further the legacy granted to us by the first wave of Chinese T'ai Chi Ch'uan teachers to reach our shores, by attaining a greater presence and position in the T'ai Chi Community, both regionally and nationally. All of our volunteer instructors have been certified by respected T'ai Chi Masters or are currently working on that certification. We have the greatest number of credentialed teachers in the area:

The Center offers instruction in several forms of T'ai Chi Ch'uan including Yang style, as taught by Grandmaster William C.C. Chen, Chen Pan Ling style, as taught by his son and heir Grandmaster Chen Yun Ching, Sun style, as taught by Dr. Paul Lam and Tim Cartmell (who studied with Sun's daughter).

The Chen Pan Ling system includes Ba Gua, Hsing-I, Shaolin, and Traditional Chinese weapons. We offer a full and varied program of Qigong, as taught by Sifus Ken Cohen and Dr.Yang Yang. Our curriculum also includes material taught by Peter Ralston called Cheng Hsin incorporating the Body Being concept, including Tui Shu Push hands and Peter Ralston's 64 form set.

The Center regularly brings in our internationally known source instructors, and others, for a variety of workshops on topics such as T'ai Chi Ch'uan with applications, Qigong, and other Internal Arts like Ba Gua, Hsing-I and traditional Chinese weapons.

Since 2001, The RTCCC has hosted the largest local celebration of World T'ai Chi and Qigong Day, a worldwide celebration in over 80 countries on six continents, that involves many other Rochester area T'ai Chi groups. It is a free, public, community exhibition of T'ai Chi and Qigong and includes cultural extras such as Traditional Chinese dance and music.
