Liu Yu

Liu Yu commands a masterful teaching style, transmitting the taichi curriculum with an astounding fluidity, aligning perfectly with the wonder and beauty inherent in the principles of taichi itself.
Master Liu Yu’s teaching style is very much like the ocean. Though tranquil and subtle, she yields the power to transform great obstacles over gentle iterations of persistent force.

Liu Yu is a lifelong student of the art, beginning her journey as a young child in Baoying China under the tutelage of Master Dai Jiayu. Demonstrating unyielding focus and natural talent she eventually became a professional Wushu athlete (martial artist) and National hero. In 1997 her steady vigilance and dedication finally earned her the title of Head Coach for the U.S National Wushu Team.
