Come and watch: ‘The Professor: Tai Chi’s Journey West’. A new feature length documentary (72 minutes) about Tai Chi and one of its legendary masters, Cheng Man-ching, who brought Tai Chi and Chinese culture to New York during the swinging, turbulent 60’s. The film tells his remarkable story, and that of his American students, and features Tai Chi as a martial art and a spiritual practice.

Cheng Man-ching’s tai chi is the style we practise at Long River Tai Chi Circle in Stroud . My teacher, Wolfe Lowenthal, studied with Professor Cheng in New York.

‘East engagingly meets West in this affectionate documentary portrait of Cheng Man-Ching, the Chinese master who brought Tai Chi to New York during the groovy but stressed-out 60’s.’ –Los Angeles Times
