Master Jou Tsung Hwa 1917 - 1998

Master Jou Hwa and his legendary school, the Tai Chi Farm served as a singularly unique influence on the world of taijiquan. Within the field of taiji study, Master Jou made contributions which were felt world wide. His three books: The Tao of Meditation, The Tao of I-Ching and The Dao of Taijiquan provided the cornerstone of his teachings. In fact The Dao of Taijiquan remains one of the best selling books in the field today and is considered by many to be the definitive textbook on the subject. In addition, Master Jou served as host to annual Zhang San Feng Festival (sometimes spelled "Chang San Feng"), an event named for and honoring the legendary founder of taiji, which attracted several hundred people a year. Its purpose was to provide a forum for the sharing of taiji and internal arts knowledge. He founded the Tai Chi Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the revival of taijiquan to its former glory as an unsurpassed martial art. In fact with his laser sharp focus on the practice, study and teaching of classical taijiquan, Master Jou Tsung Hwa worked tirelessly towards this revival and stood as a shining example of taiji's benefits. Altogether, he left behind him a body of work and practice second to none.
