At Chen Bing Taiji Academy USA, we recognize the need for a formal membership because we look for future successors who can inherit the classical teachings of Chen Village where Tai Chi was created. In fact, it requires a step-by-step teaching process based on our curriculum and hands-on corrections in order to make practitioners experience deeply for powerful energy cultivation and circulation. The hands-on corrections are so necessary because it prevents any physical misalignment and internal foul energy. Most importantly, It is very important for us to preserve the same practical methods and standard as taught in Chen Village.
CBTA USA is very selective in choosing a Chen Village member because it is not only an apprenticeship education program, but also a teacher training course.
The main difference between "attenders" and "members" at CBTA USA comes down to one word: ‘Commitment’. Since 2003, It has been over 15 years that CBTA USA opened public classes to help promote the classical Taijiquan of Chen Village. But it was extremely hard to deliver the best teaching quality for those attenders who were not committed. Chen Family Taijiquan at CBTA USA is not just Taijiquan that people see in a park. It is not just modernized Tai Chi that most people see. Chen Family Taijiquan of Chen Village at CBTA USA is the oldest Taijiquan style that was created by Chen Wangting who was a Taijiquan creator about 4 centuries ago, which is historically proven in China. CV members are committed to becoming authentic followers and classical practitioners of Chen Village Taijiquan.
Every school must have an enrollment. Every army has an enlistment. Membership identifies our Taijiquan (Tai Chi) family who are not just attendees. The CV members who have a commitment to study the oldest Taijiquan in the world will be taught step-by-step based on our systemized curriculum that is reeling silk (Chan Si Gong), explosive power (Fa Jin), long forms, weapons, grappling, applications and sparring with hands-on corrections, lectures and demonstrations.
Becoming a CV membership is a simple process.
Step 1, you need to read what the CV membership is and its purpose. After reading carefully, please inquire about a membership contract on the website form or simply email at info@ChenBing.org.
Step 2, you will need to fill out and sign the CV membership documents. You will be guided to pay your contract and we’ll contact you to set up your first training with either the senior instructor or another CBTA USA teacher or the Intangible Successor Master Bosco Baek.
Step 3. choose the membership option that is a 3-month, 6-month or 12-month contract with auto-pay.
Please make sure your ‘commitment’ to study the authentic Chen Village Taijiquan before your inquiry. Once your membership is approved, you may attend all CV membership hours as much as you want. All of your lessons will be taught individually or sometimes in a small group setting if there is a practitioner who has the same topic or pace of study.
