In July of 2009, the world’s foremost authorities on the five traditional Chinese Family Schools of Tai Chi Chuan, as well as other top Tai Chi Chuan practitioners and scholars will come to Vanderbilt University in Nashville Tennessee for an international level Tai Chi Chuan Symposium. The theme of this Symposium will focus on bringing together the wisdom of Chinese culture with the precision of modern science through evidence-based academic sessions, Master’s workshops and other special events designed to foster an exchange of knowledge and cultures.
This Symposium will be the first of its kind in the United States. It offers an unparalleled opportunity to study with five of China's top Masters along with well respected scholars carefully selected for their unique and highly professional level of expertise in the scientific study and examination of Tai Chi Chuan.
