Biography of Master Su, Jianping：
Born in 1970 in Handan (hometown of Yang Style Tai Chi), Hebei Province, China, Master Su became the apprentice of Tai Chi guru Chen, Xiaoxin, the 19th direct line successor of Chen Style Tai Chi in Chen Jia Gou (CJG), China. He is the first direct line apprentice from a family other than the Chen’s.

With the meticulous instructions from three Tai Chi gurus (Chen, Xiaoxin; Chen, Xiaowang & Chen, Ziqiang), Master Su’s style and skills remains pure. With his own study and practice, Master Su established the Tai Chi health improvement database. It has become the scientific base for Tai Chi fitness, health improvement and health recovery.
Paraphrasing the sophisticated Tai Chi terms into easily understood everyday language highlights his Tai Chi lessons. He has pointed out that “Tai Chi exists everywhere in our daily life”.
Since 2005, he has undertaken six sub-divisions for CJG Tai Chi Association in Hebei Quzhou, Handan, Shijiazhuang, Beijing, Cairns (Australia) and Auckland (New Zealand).
