About the Taoist Tai Chi Society of New Zealand
The Taoist Tai Chi Society of New Zealand is part of the International Taoist Tai Chi Society and its parent organisation the Fung Loy Kok Institute of Taoism. We are a global volunteer organisation with more than 800 locations in 26 countries. The society brings together people of different languages and cultures in a worldwide community. The New Zealand society celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2015.
A Charitable Organisation
The Taoist Tai Chi Society of New Zealand was incorporated as a not-for-profit organisation in 1990. The society was founded to preserve and promote the Taoist tradition of the dual cultivation of body and mind. In keeping with Master Moy Lin Shin’s vision of compassion and service to others, all instructors are nationally accredited volunteers, and most of the administrative work is also done by volunteers.
Included in the International Taoist Tai Chi Society are two other organisations founded by Master Moy: the Fung Loy Kok Institute of Taoism and the Gei Pang Lok Hup Academy. It was always Master Moy’s vision that his teachings be made available through a single organisation.
The Taoist Tai Chi Society of New Zealand shares the aims and objectives of the International Taoist Tai Chi Society.
