Importance of lineage and transmission

Central to Master Ding Academy are the core values of tradition and lineage. At the heart of lineage is the responsibility to preserve the complete art and its transmission in the way it is practised and taught. 


Being part of MDA, a lineage school that holds a central position in the Tai Chi Chuan family tree, is to be part of a tradition that goes back to Yang Lu Chan, founder of the Yang style, and further - to the origins of the art.


Down these generations, Tai Chi Chuan has evolved and spread across the world. At MDA, our responsibility to our lineage is to embody the legacy of Master Ip Tai Tak and those who came before him, as we follow in their footsteps.
