About Us

The Gin Soon Tai Chi Club was founded in 1969 with permission from Grandmaster Yeung Sau Chung to propagate the Yang Style Tai Chi Chuan in North America. It is the oldest school teaching Tai Chi Chuan in the Greater Boston Area today.

Although there are many schools of Tai Chi Chuan available in the United States, the Gin Soon Tai Chi Club is different from others because its founder Master Gin Soon Chu, is a disciple who studied with and was authorized to teach by Grandmaster Yang Sau-Chung, firstborn and heir of the legendary Yang Cheng-Fu. Master Chu received a deep and well-rounded training, first from Master Lai Hok Soon and then Grandmaster Yang Sau-Chung, a training that covered all aspects of Classical Yang Family Tai Chi Chuan.

The school has attracted many students from around the world with its traditional approach to training characterized by personal individualized attention, emphasis on correct forms, personal development, integration of body, chi and intent, repetition, mutual respect, and hard work.

Over the years, many students have graduated from the school and became instructors themselves. In 1995, the Gin Soon Tai Chi Chuan Federation was established to better serve our members who come from different countries.

All instructions at the headquarters, private and group, are taught by Master Gin Soon Chu and his son Vincent Chu, who studied from his father when he was very young.

The headquarters are open 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm, Monday to Friday; 11 am to 1 pm on Monday and Thursday and 1:00 to 4:00 pm on Saturday.

The headquarters are located in comfortable and spacious training facilities at 33 Harrison Avenue, ground floor, Boston, MA 02111. For more information, the school can be contacted at (617) 542-4442 or write to Vincent Chu at chu.v@usa.com
