About Your Teacher / Guide


My name is Bruce Marcus

I'd like to share some of the knowledge I've gained studying the martial arts for the last 45 years.

Always drawn to the beautiful postures, and flowing movements of Tai Chi, I started to appreciate the genius and intricacy hidden within them. I've always tried to understand the real usage of what I was seeing, and eventually the mystery started to reveal itself in many "eye opening ways".

I heard about the rare esoteric "sister arts" that have common principles with Tai Chi. They're known as Baguazhang (Eight Trigram Palm) and Hsing-i Chuan (Shape Mind Fist), and became extremely curious. It was satisfying to know that the years I've invested in Tai Chi would carry over to my study of these other arts. I just found that tremendously rewarding and fascinating at the same time and I wanted to know more.

I felt like I discovered gold, and I couldn't get enough...

I decided to devote my entire life to the study of these hidden treasures from China. The Internal Arts are also known as Neijia, and I would love to share them with you.

Mr. BP Chan was a true pioneer, he was one of the first to bring these arts into this country in the mid 1970's. Mr. Chan learned his Tai Chi Chuan from Yang Cheng Fu's brother Yang Shao-hou, Tung Ying Chieh, and Grandmaster Liu Yun Qiao.


What they say


Former Student

"I was frustrated with my lack of progress in my Tai Chi and Qigong practice. It seemed like no matter what I did I wasn't advancing in my skills. I thought I had hit the ceiling of my Tai Chi abilities. After taking Bruce's Class the quality and true understanding of this art that I hold so dear was completely transformed! My approach to studying at home was taken to a new height....  But not just that, my performance was significantly improved."

"I began studying Tai Chi here about 6 months ago. I have to say that Bruce is a wonderful teacher with knowledge that comes from long study and mastering both hard and soft styles. This was not my first time taking Tai Chi classes, but has been the most rewarding. Bruce teaches the Tai Chi form and also the very subtle body mechanics that take the movements to a whole different level. Class is relaxed, but very informative each time. There is also exposure to Chi Kung, and sometimes the other "sister" internal arts all of which fit together nicely!"
