Thai Keik Australia is an organization founded in 1979 and
dedicated to teaching the entire Yang style of Tai Chi Chuan.
The current president is Sifu Wayne Hansen who has been
training in Tai Chi Chuan since 1973.
The teaching has a proud legacy: a lineage passed down from the renowned Cheng Man-Ching (鄭曼青) to Ye Xiu Ting (葉秀挺) in Malaysia, where it was taught to Tok Seng Gim (祝聖錦), Tan Khoon Ang (陳君安), who instructed and taught Eric Fitzgerald, who in turn instructed and taught Wayne Hansen.
Sifu Hansen teaches to preserve this strong and vibrant strain of Tai Chi Chuan that flourished in the martial furnace that was Malaysia in the 1950s and 1960s to help it grow and develop here in Australia.
Teaching in our organization emphasizes the principles of technically correct practice, detailed, personal instruction and effective martial application of yielding and softness. The health benefits of the practice flow from adherence to the martial principles that made Tai Chi Chuan a famous art.
