Tai Ji Men is an ancient menpai (similar to school) of qigong, martial arts and self-cultivation. Tai Ji Men is a treasure trove of traditional Chinese culture and holds the key to unlock the origin of wisdom. The culture of Tai Ji Men is deeply rooted in Tao wisdom, inheriting one of the highest philosophies of mankind, which has been passed down and practiced in a cloistered tradition since ancient times. The contemporary Zhang-men-ren (grandmaster) of Tai Ji Men, Dr. Hong Tao Tze, established Tai Ji Men Qigong Academy in 1966 in response to a calling to bring both physical and spiritual health to modern society. Dr. Hong teaches his dizi (apprentices) the philosophy and wisdom of life; guiding them to cultivate moral character and purify hearts while strengthening physical, mental and spiritual health. Through different qigong practice techniques and self-cultivation, Tai Ji Men dizi learn to reach the highest state of unity between heart and qi, harmony between heaven and man, finding the true self and returning to original purity.
