Welcome Message from Bruce

Hi Folks,

Welcome to the first reopening of the Tai Chi Mastery Program in over 4 years in an all new digital high definition online format!

I believe that learning and practicing tai chi is one of the best things you can do for your long-term health. The sad fact is that currently in the West there are not enough competent teachers in most cities with a few exceptions.

Tai chi is the "Über-exercise" for the planet.

Tai chi can transform your nervous system so you feel more fully alive and you can heal the mind-body disconnect that is so common in our age.

Tai chi helps you release burdens, stress and anxiety as well as clear out your body's energetic channels of stagnant energy.

I believe those of us who practice and teach tai chi are the Future of Fitness. So many Western exercises injure the body and aggravate existing conditions.

The soft flowing motions of tai chi are simultaneously a powerful form of preventive medicine and restorative - in many cases tai chi can help people recover from injuries.

I have personally used tai chi to recover from hard martial arts injuries, hepatitis, and from severe back trauma. Without tai chi I would probably not be able to walk today.

Like many of you who teach tai chi, I do so because I have a passion for tai chi and because I want to help as many people as possible build their own tai chi practice. I also want to share all of the inner knowledge that I learned in China while studying with the highest level masters within the Chen, Yang and Wu lineages.

I am truly grateful to all of my teachers who shared their knowledge with me and I wish to do the same with you.

Here are three important points about this program:

1) The 'Most Comprehensive' Way to Learn Tai Chi: The Tai Chi Mastery Program contains over 65 hours of online lessons. Although this will never take the place of a real teacher, I feel this program this will enable these teachings to reach those who do not have the time or money to attend events. It is also important for those who don't have a high-level teacher nearby. This program contains master-level lessons that you can watch over and over for years to come. This is invaluable to anyone who is a committed student of tai chi. Some of my best teachings are included that I have NEVER released publicly, material many teachers just don't know. You can watch a master do a form, but very few can pull out all the details that make that form powerful.

2) It is About What's Inside: Many people have asked what style the program is. Although I teach the Wu Style Short Form in great detail, all tai chi forms have essentially the same energetics and are based on the same principles. When I teach each movement, I talk directly about BOTH the Wu Style AND the Yang Style. If you practice or wish to learn the Yang Style, you can put this directly into your form. I have chosen to teach the Wu style here because it is a great style to learn the Neigong, it is an easy form for the aging population and it is excellent for meditation. Lastly, one of the bonuses is a Push Hands Mastery Program that is comprehensive to all forms and styles.

3) The TAO of Mastery: I believe that we are all moving toward personal mastery and the truth is that you never really 'master' tai chi. That being said, this program is a summary of my 40+ years of practicing and teaching tai chi. I was fortunate enough to study with what in China are called 'grandmasters' or 'lineage holders' of three of the major tai chi lines. Not everyone wants to be a 'master' or has the commitment to attain the highest level, but almost most everyone who does tai chi wants to get the most benefit from practicing. I estimate it has taken over 8,000 hours (planning, filming, post-produciton) over the last ten years to create this program for you. It is the most comprehensive program I know of for the art of tai chi. It is packed full of information that will help you move to your own personal best and beyond.

My promise is that if you practice what is in this program, you will transform and upgrade your tai chi.

If you already teach tai chi you are going find all kinds of new material, lessons and approaches that will be useful to you and your students. My hope is you take what is in here and use it for yourself and others.

My wish is for you to get more from your tai chi practice than you ever thought possible!

In appreciation,

My Tai Chi Teachers and Lineage

For those who are NEW to my teachings, I think it is important to share with you who I studied Tai Chi with in China. For beginners all you need to know is that I studied with many of the best masters in China and you can leave it at that. I put this section here for two reasons: 1) To explain to those interested who I learned with and briefly how it came about; 2) To give respect to those whom I studied with as the real source of these teachings and what you will find in this program.

I spent eleven years learning the internal arts as a full-time student in China. It was my daytime job so to speak, my sole focus was training 24/7 with only small breaks to eat, sleep and recuperate. When I came back to the West one of the roles I have played is to help transfer the knowledge of the internal arts from the East to the West (see my book The Power of Internal Martial Arts and Chi - North Atlantic/Random House).

My training in the three primary tai chi lineages:

Chen Style of Tai Chi

My main teacher in the Chen style was Feng Zhi Qiang. I trained with him both in his house and in parks where he taught me one-on-one in the 1980’s. We were very close. I probably would have done more with Grandmaster Feng, but by the time we started doing stuff together I found the difficultly of living in China too much. At one time, he asked me to be an official disciple, but at the time I was already a disciple of Liu Hung Chieh. How it traditionally works in China is that you cannot be a disciple of two teachers at the same time.

Feng used to go and teach in the Chen village all the time. He was the last push hands student of Chen Fa Ke, who was the person who trained the top people in the Chen village. Chen Fa Ke was the also person who brought the Chen Style out of the village to Beijing.

Feng Zhi Qiang & Bruce Doing Push Hands

From Feng I learned many things, including how the Chen Style does reeling/coiling silk which is a specialty of the Chen Style. We did a lot of pushing hands and fighting applications. I also learned from him the particular way the Chen Style incorporates spiraling into all the movements as well as how to create the explosive and vibrating power that high level Chen Style tai chi is known for. Feng also emphasized how to practice the Chen style of tai chi so that it does not damage your body, which many are not familiar with.

Yang Style of Tai Chi

My first Yang Style teacher was Chen Man-Ch'ing in the 1960's in New York. My second teacher was TT Liang, who was the first disciple of Chen Man-Ch'ing. I sought out TT Liang in Asia and found him to be an amazing and generous man. He used to say he would teach you everything. The only question was, 'could you get it?'

Then I studied in Hong Kong with Yang Shou-chung who was the eldest son of Yang Ch'eng Fu. This is as direct in the lineage as you can get in the Yang style of tai chi. The training I did with him was focused on the martial applications of tai chi. I also trained in the Old Yang Style with two other teachers, Lin Du-Ying and Bai Hua. One of the biggest things to learn in the Yang Style is the art of pulling silk as well as all of the internal content of the Yang Style as they did it in the old days rather than the often watered down versions that are taught today.

Cheng Man-Ching

Wu Style of Tai Chi

My primary teacher in the Wu Style was Liu Hung Chieh. Liu Hung Chieh studied direclty in the house of Wu Chien-ch'uan, the founder of the style. The current Wu style is done by the students of Wu Chien-ch'uan or his two sons. The Wu Style is the major variant of the Yang Style. It essentially distills the small frame of the Yang Style.

The original Yang, Yang Lu Chen, had three best students, the best of the three was Wu’s father. Wu taught in the Yang family tai chi association – he was one of their main teachers. Being 20 years older than the rest, he was a major teacher of Yang Cheng-Fu. They both created their forms in cooperation with each other. The Wu and Yang forms are thus very close. They are different branches of the same tai chi family.

Liu was invited to live in the house of Wu Chien-ch'uan in Hong Kong, which he did, were he studied daily with Wu Chien-ch'uan. During this time, Wu wanted to write a book, however, his writing ability was not great. Conversely Liu had been a university professor of Classic Chinese at Ching Hua University in Beijing (the Harvard of China).  Liu was the one who actually helped pen Wu’s tai chi book while living in his house.

Liu Hung Chieh & Bruce

I studied tai chi and all the internal martial arts with Liu Hung Chieh privately in his home every day for three and a half years. Most people don’t have any idea what China was like previously under stricter Communist rule. In order to teach me the Water Lineage of Taoism, Liu officially adopted me as his son in a Confucion ceremony.The Chinese rules were you could teach your child anything without any vows or obligations - this was a most unusual and gracious act for Lui to adopt a Westerner for which I will forever be grateful.

“It’s the most profound and complete system for health and (human) development I ever met. In addition it is taught in a very clear and profound way, made understandable for Westerners.”

Ernst P. Germany

Tai Chi is the ÜBER-EXERCISE that you can use for your
PERSONAL TRANSFORMATION in any area of your life:

“The training was intense but very rewarding. Bruce’s material made a huge difference in how I practice tai chi now. I look forward to practicing and integrating it in the months to come.”

Ana P. Boston, USA


“The Wu Tai Chi Instructor Training has been an extremely useful and deep upgrade to my tai chi practice. Bruce Frantzis’ experience and teaching is comprehensive, thorough and extremely relevant, and he effectively brings high quality material from west to east.”

Practicing push hands is the bridge and the key to learning the how to use the energies of tai chi in martial fighting applications.

As a professional seeking to step back from years of high stress work, a month of tai chi with Bruce provided insight, practices, and perspectives that will help me move toward a calmer, more healthy, more centered way of life. A rich, deep and life changing experience.”

“I have participated in some excellent courses provided by fine instructors over the years. However, in terms of depth of knowledge, material and quality of instruction, none of those courses came close to the quality and level provided at the Energy Arts Wu Style Short Form Instructor Training. I would unreservedly recommend Bruce Frantzis Energy Arts courses to anyone.”

What People Are Saying:

Bruce has developed unique and effective ways to accelerate learning fairly difficult material. Extremely valuable to any tai chi practitioner that wants to improve their form, health and energy.”
- Sara P., New York City, US

I feel practicing the short form will improve and maintain my health and gives me a great way to help others.”
- Hans R., Netherlands

This was an amazing course. Thorough and in-depth, this training has been transformational and deeply healing. I will go away with a strong foundation in the fundamentals of the Wu Style Short Form, with enough material to keep me occupied for many years of practice.”
- Clare F., London, UK

In every seminar with Bruce we are always impressed by how much deep and valuable material he is presenting in a down to earth, practical and understandable way. We highly can recommend his teachings.”

Ralph Heber and Elisabeth Woersing
Senior instructors of Energy Arts, practitioners of Martial Arts, Qigong and Tai Chi for more than 20 years. Tai Chi Schule Ulm/Neu

When I met Bruce Frantzis in 1997 I already had studied martial arts from the age of twelve. Impressed by his teaching and his deep knowledge in the martial arts and energy work I decided to continue studying with him since that time. For my further development in the martial arts this was a very big step.  With the launch of this new program Bruce is offering one more possibility of passing down his knowledge.”

Olaf Rolving, Zendocan,

Some thirty years ago, a whirlwind martial artist named Bruce Frantzis introduced me to the arts of bagua and tai chi and revealed how they support and enhance one another. As my interests evolved – from martial arts to health and healing to meditation and the Tao – Bruce continuously unveiled for me new possibilities within these arts. There has not been one day in the past 30 years that I haven’t been amazed by and deeply grateful for the depth and vastness of Bruce’s knowledge, the clarity and openness with which he teaches, and his dedication to pass on these arts at the highest levels possible to new generations of practitioners.”

Bill Ryan, Toward Harmony Tai Chi & Qigong, Northampton, Massachusetts, USA,

At Brookline Tai Chi, we use the Wu Style Short Form as the cornerstone of a comprehensive curriculum that has been teaching people how to integrate the energy of their bodies and minds for over 20 years..”

Dan Kleiman, Program Director, Brookline Tai Chi,

Bruce Frantzis has a unique way of teaching that goes to the very core of your being, whether you are learning internal arts for fighting, health, or spiritual development. He is a true catalyst, bringing about dynamic changes to your physical body, chi, mind and spirit as your skills increase. Generous and compassionate, he communicates from the heart and is appropriately challenging on every level!”

Patrick Foley and Jane Launchbury have studied with Bruce and his Senior Instructor Brian Cooper since 1991.

I have had the privilege of studying with Bruce over the last 8 years. Bruce is a true treasure of Taoism in the west. His teachings have been essential in my developing an understanding and practical ability in the internal martial arts, healing and meditation. He helped me understand how they function and how they interrelate.  He really gets this stuff, and he helps others to really get it, too.”
