About Us

  • Tai Ji Men is an ancient menpai (similar to school) of martial arts and qigong. Dr. Hong, Tao-Tze, Zhang-men-ren (leader) of Tai Ji Men, inherited the highest level of qigong and martial arts from great masters of the past and founded Tai Ji Men Qigong Academy in Taiwan in 1966. Over the past 46 years, tens of thousands of Tai Ji Men dizi (similar to students) from all walks of life and from all over the world have greatly benefited from practicing Tai Ji Men Qigong. In order for the people of the world to have the opportunity to learn martial arts, qigong, the wisdom of yin and yang as well as other aspects of traditional Chinese culture, in 2000 Dr. Hong established Tai Ji Men Qigong Academy in Los Angeles, which provides a balanced path for people to attain health, happiness, and wisdom.
