Our School was founded by Patrick Watson who - like others of Cheng Man-Ch'ing’s senior students - was given permission to teach by the Master. Master Cheng gave Professor Watson the further mandate to train teachers. Having introduced the Master to Oscar Ichazo, founder of the Arica Institute, Professor Watson received further endorsement to found The School of T’ai Chi Chuan.

The School of T'ai Chi Chuan continues the tradition of Cheng Man-Ch'ing and Oscar Ichazo by offering teacher training as an option to experienced students who have demonstrated their commitment to the art. Study continues to include advanced work in the Form, Push Hands and the Sword.
