Why Many Honor Him as “Grandmaster” Waysun Liao
From the age of twelve, Master Waysun Liao studied with a wandering Taoist and in a Taoist temple until he became a full Taichi and Tao master. His first book, T’ai Chi Classics (published by Shambala Publications) is currently translated into 9 languages worldwide. Since then, he has written several more, published by both Shambhala Publications and Taichi Tao Productions. Considered one of the world’s foremost authorities on traditional Taoist wisdom and Chi arts, he is the founder and master of one of the oldest Taichi centers in North America, the Taichi Tao Center, which is located in Oak Park, Illinois. It remains his worldwide teaching headquarters and the only source for this direct and exclusive teaching in the entire world. Thousands of Taichi students, many who went on to become professional Taichi instructors, learned Taichi and how to teach Taichi right here from their classes at the Taichi Tao Center under Taichi Master Waysun Liao.
Even so, Master Waysun Liao is the last and only living Tao master today in his heritage who carries and transmits the ancient oral traditions concerning the power of Tao, and his exclusive critical practice methods for developing Chi power. That’s why other Taichi instructors, learning centers, martial arts masters, spiritual teachers, and Taichi group leaders around the world today, call him “Grandmaster.” It means that they see the unlimited potential within this wisdom and the amazing benefits in learning Taichi through Master Liao, and want to claim a part of that powerful legacy!
The good news is that now everyone can learn Taichi and Tao wisdom with Waysun Liao as their own grandmaster, including you!
