History of Taoist Tai Chi in the USA


Master Moy Lin Shin immigrated to Canada in 1970, where he founded the Taoist Tai Chi Society of Canada and subsequently the International Taoist Tai Chi Society.

In 1974, the first USA branch was established in Buffalo, New York, a short trip from Toronto, where Master Moy Lin Shin had established the Society’s headquarters.

In the early 1980s, some students of Master Moy moved to Denver and Tallahassee and established branches there.

Today, Taoist Tai Chi® arts are taught in 28 states and the District of Columbia, and development of sites in additional states is ongoing.
