A Few Words About Us

The Celestial Tai Chi College of Australia was founded in January 1990 by two Chinese Masters, both of whom have high credentials from their native Asia. They are Grand Master Eng Chor Khor, J.P. and Senior Master Chin Min Lian. However, the roots of the Celestial Tai Chi College can be traced to 1976 when Grand Master Eng Chor Khor began teaching Tai Chi in Australia.

"Whoever practices Tai Chi will gain the pliability of a child, the health of a lumberjack and the peace of mind of a sage..."

The Celestial Tai Chi College operates 16 Centres around Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, offering day and evening classes in Tai Chi, Qigong and various Wushu forms. It has one of the most comprehensive and systematic teaching syllabi for all students and a specialised training program for instructors and trainee instructors. The College also runs corporate classes during business hours and day classes in community centres. It has also been significantly active in conducting various courses and workshops in schools, colleges, business institutions, hospitals, Melbourne Remand Centre and The Royal Australian Air Force.
