Often found by the edge of a river, the Master was fond of remarking:
“Passing on and on like this, it never ceases day or night.”

-- from the Analects of Confucius



Tai Chi Chuan is many things to many people: from a gentle exercise of grace and precision to a rigorous discipline of strength and agility, from a holistic system of preventive medicine with many surprising benefits to a curious technique of self-defense based on listening and yielding. There often seems no end to its applications. Having roots as deep as China itself and claiming a direct lineage of over a thousand years, Tai Chi Chuan is now currently one of the most widespread exercise systems in the world.



The mission of the Falling Water School is threefold: to celebrate the great mystery of life that Tai Chi represents, to share the fortunes of its wonder with as many people as possible, and to offer continuous support for the quiet strength of the lasting heart. All classes are taught in the traditional style and are grounded in the teachings of the internationally renowned Master Tung Kaiying and his son Master Tung Chenwei.

Please feel free to come try a practice or class at any time.

"The goal of Tai Chi Chuan is not to demonstrate strength, power or violence. The goal is to attain serenity, tranquility and the discovery of oneself. It is truly an exercise of the spirit."

- Master Tung Kai Ying
