A Chat with William C.C. Chen Tai Chi Chuan
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
I am the daughter of World Renowned Fighter and Tai Chi Chuan Great Grandmaster, William CC Chen. Our school has been in business for 65 years. I have been a competitive athlete my whole life and have won over 45 Gold Medals in my competitive and fighting career.
Exercise is challenging. How do you keep clients motivated and engaged?
I change the tempo constantly. We move to music. I enjoy utilizing the 3 kinds of energy flows from the 3 types of workouts I have customized to flux and flow together. Mind, Body, Sweat. Most importantly, we work together, to bring ourselves together. Without the mind, the body is wasted.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
My father started it 65 years ago. He is the Pioneer of Tai Chi Chuan in America. He was so sought out for teaching, it just made it easier to start a business. I was born into it and I couldn't imagine having, have been born into a better life.
What do you love most about your job?
That it's my life... I love my life. Everything from what it has taught me and still teaches me. How it has always made me a better athlete. The fact that I get to work with my family everyday. I never stop learning, from my students, from my teaching and especially, from my father.
