The Tai Ji Group

Started in 1982, the CAV Tai Ji group has continued to grow under the coaching and guidance of our Past Master Boon Hung Hong, the late Master Norman Phang and our current Master Anthony Lun伦华祥 师父.

Lessons include: Breathing and stretching exercises, Tai Ji forms and weaponry.

Sunday 9:30 am -12:30 pm during CAV school terms and

Tuesday 7:30pm – 9:30 pm.

4 workshops per year.

Through the years, Master Lun has incorporated a wide range of exercises to improve members’ skills and techniques in all aspects and skill levels. Besides Chen Style and Yang Style Tai Ji Quan, members have also learnt single and double swords, single broadsword, double sticks and fan routines. In 1997, Ming Hang Yim assisted Master Lun to teach the class. When Yim left in early 2000s, Mr Beng Law was appointed the assistant instructor of the group.

In 2008, the Tai Ji group started full day workshops for 4 Saturdays a year. The extra time in the workshops enabled Master Lun to go through the Tai Ji techniques in detail.

In 2010, Master Lun was awarded CAV Honorary Life Membership in recognition of his dedicated years of for his voluntary Tai Ji teaching.

The group also practices Yang 杨式 and Wu 吴式 styles Tai Ji quan and Yang and Chen陈式 weaponry routines. In recent years, the group has been invited to perform at venues around Melbourne and Glen Waverley Chinese New Year Street Festivals.

It is pleasing to see that many of our members are gaining confidence in performing in public; we now have a strong team of members who have the experience in group performance.

I encourage you to come along, alone or with  friends, and see how this ancient martial art can improve your health and mental faculties.
