World Shen Long : Promoting authentic Tai Chi around the world
The International Shen Long Tai Chi Association was founded by Master Wu Kuo Chung (吳國忠) with its headquarters in Taiwan and schools in several parts of the world, including mainland China, the USA, Canada, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Australia, New Zealand and, of course, the United Kingdom. The Association seeks to promote the true art of Traditional Tai Chi around the world, as a jewel of Chinese culture and philosophy, for improved health, as a martial art, for spiritual enlightenment and application of its principles in everyday life. World Shen Long teaches Tai Chi based on the heritage of Grandmaster Cheng Man Ching as handed down in his latter years and continued by Master Wu Kuo Chung.
Since 2002, World Shen Long headquarters has been located in the mountainous areas of central Taiwan (see picture). Every year members from all over the world gather here for the annual International Shen Long Day, which is an opportunity to meet and make new friends, and partake in intensive Tai Chi practice over the course of a week. The climax of the week is a banquet of Chinese cuisine and performances by participants, and usually some time is allocated to sightseeing in Taiwan.
In 2015, the 12th annual World Shen Long Day and conference was held at the University of Sussex, Brighton, England. This was the first time it has been held outside the Far East.
The Shen Long Tai Chi Association, UK
The Shen Long Tai Chi Association UK was formed in 2005 with permission from Master Wu Kuo Chung to spread the art, skills, and philosophies of Traditional Taoist Tai Chi based on the teachings of Cheng Man Ching. Since 2012, the UK chapter has been located in its full time headquarters at the Brighton Wellness Centre in Brighton, probably one of the few Tai Chi schools to have its own facility.
