On the front page of the Yang family tai chi website is a listing for the China office of the Association.
Their contact information is:
No. 10 Wu Cheng West Street
Taiyuan, Shanxi, P.R.C. 030006

I feel confident that they could provide you with information on Yang style teachers in China.
Good luck.

Hi Snakeyes,

If you are truly interested in immersing yourself in study in China, you may want first to secure an introduction from someone who knows you in California. I think that access to good teaching in China is not granted as easily as in the U.S. With an introduction from someone who can attest to your merit, “martial morality,” etc., you may have more doors open to you more quickly. You may also find that you get more specific guidance as to which precise doors you should try knocking on.

Many teachers in China seem to tour in the U.S. or be connected with teachers that do. Most seem also to be connected with schools that are already established in the U.S. If you invest some time on this side of the ocean, you may get more out of the other side.

Take care,
