Ohlone College Tai Chi students got a visit from Grandmaster Zeng Nai Liang, one of the top six martial arts Masters in the world on Wednesday, June 22. Grandmaster Zeng and his wife Master Wei Xiang Lian, a highly respected Wushu instructor, taught two positions from the Yang Style Tai Chi routine. Grandmaster Zeng was originally involved in the selection of postures and subsequent choreography of the routines. Towards the end of the session, students were able to work one-on-one with the two masters.
Grandmaster Zeng Nai Liang is one of the top 10 martial arts coaches in China, a National Referee, and the Fujian Martial Arts Association's Vice Chairperson. He has taught several students all over the world, including several who have won world martial arts tournament medals.
The Ohlone Tai Chi class is taught by the 2010 Tai Chi Master of the Year, Sifu May Chen. She is a popular teacher at the Ohlone College Total Health and Wellness Center in Newark, and teaches classes through both Community Education Ohlone for Healthy Living and the for-credit academic program.
