The American Yangjia Michuan Taijiquan Association (AYMTA) was founded in the early 1990’s in California by Akai Jong, Julia Fisher-Fairchild and Wang Yen-nien. It is a non-profit organization with the purpose of perpetuating Yangjia Michuan Taijiquan (YMT) as taught by Wang Yen-nien, fourth generation master.
As a non-profit, it is entirely run on membership fees and by volunteers who dedicate their time to promoting Yangjia Michuan Taijiquan.
Within this Web Site you will find more detailed information about the history of Yangjia Michuan, the practice of it, and listings of teachers and organizations that teach it. I will be posting information and articles as I receive them and will continue to expand the site with the help of AYMTA members and practitioners. We look forward to interaction with the great world wide taiji community and to do what we can to help it grow and flourish.
May your taiji journey be long and your life be fruitful and exciting.
The AYMTA Web Site is a resource for teachers and students of Yangjia Michuan Taijiquan across the world. It is also a resource for those who are interested in Taijiquan in general. We encourage the contribution of articles, commentary, and art work for both the web site and our members’ journal which is published twice a year.
As always, please feel free to send your comments and suggestions.
