Everyday T'ai Chi Ch'uan is the project of Jim Bayer, who has benefited greatly from his practice of T'ai Chi, and is dedicated to sharing it with others. He is a regular student at the T'ai Chi Ch'uan Center of Milwaukee, which has been in existence since the early 1970s. The Center combines two powerful streams of Chinese martial arts, the popular T'ai Chi lineage of Prof. Cheng Man-ch'ing and Benjamin Pang-jeng Lo, and the martial and Taoist teachings of General Yin Chian-ho, who taught traditional Chinese Kung-fu in Milwaukee for many years.
Jim Bayer began at the T'ai Chi Ch'uan Center
of Milwaukee in 1992, and was certified to teach by the school's director, Michael
Milewski, about 8 years later. Jim is honored to be a member of the Center's Board of Directors since the mid 1990s.
His teaching style combines humor
and hard work, and while he emphasizes the healing and personal growth aspects of
T'ai Chi, he enjoys sharing its self-defense capabilities as well. He currently has over 15,000 hours of classroom
teaching experience. Jim hopes to share the
complete traditional art of T'ai Chi Ch'uan, helping to preserve it for future generations.
