Welcome to our web site, I am glad that you are interested in learning more about the International Society of Chen Taijiquan (ISCT). Taijiquan is rapidly becoming more popular around the world, and it is our goal to offer the traditional training as it has been passed down in my family. My sister, Chen Peiju, and I are 20th generation Chen family successors of taijiquan, and we now have teachers in many countries around the world. ISCT is an open organization that is actively working to support our network of teachers and students.
As with any traditional art, an aspiring student needs to develop the fundamental skills under the guidance of a knowledgable instructor. Unfortunately in our modern society full of instant gratification, traditional taijiquan does not offer any shortcuts. ISCT teachers are qualified to lead you step by step along the way, but of course most of the work must be done by yourself.
I encourage you to enjoy this down-to-earth art and am confident that if you practice regularly your quality of life will improve in many ways. Look through our web site and you will find a community of friendly people learning taijiquan. Please visit one of our classrooms or send an email if you need more information.
Sincerely, Chen Peishan
Chairman of the International Society of Chen Taijiquan
