Master Workshops

Twice a year, the Falling Water School has the great fortune of being able to offer in-depth weekend workshops for committed students with the leaders of our lineage: Grandmaster Tung Kaiying in the summer and his son Master Tung Chenwei in the winter. To attend these workshops students must already have learned the basic sequences of the Tung family slowset and fastset and the basic double push hands routine. It is a great honor to be able to host such high caliber teachers and a rare opportunity to be able to study Tai Chi Chuan directly underneath the guidance of a genuine master of Tai Chi Chuan and holder of a lineage.
