DAVID CHEN & TAI CHI PARK PROJECT
This article is a tribute to my late teacher, David Chen,
co-authored by his students and friends shortly after David's
passing. Chen Laoshi was a wonderful taiji player and teacher
and an exceptional person. He is deeply missed by us all.
|"You want it, nobody can stop you. You don't want it, nobody can help you."
Grandmaster Benjamin Lo
|"If one approaches the study of this art without perseverance, not only is it a
waste of time, but one emerges empty-handed from a mountain of treasures."
Professor Cheng Man-Ching
|" Taijiquan is an investment that grows over time and
pays dividends in all areas of our lives."
"You have to make your own practice a success."
"Don't try to surpass another's ability; instead, surpass your own."
"Don't just do the movements - feel them!"
David C. Chen
