Moy Lin Shin (1931-1998) demonstrates Tai Chi in this video. Moy learned Yang style Tai Chi from Leung Tze Pang, and would later adapt the form to be more focused on health. He called this new modified style “Taoist Tai Chi”.
Moy Lin Shin was sickly as a child, and was sent to a Taoist monastery to regain his health. It was from his time spent in the monastery that he developed a deep interest in Taoism. Moy would later become a Taoist monk at the Yuen Yuen Institute. As part of his duties, Moy Lin Shin was sent abroad to spread the understanding of Taoism and its practices.
After some time travelling, Moy settled in Montreal, Canada. In 1970 Moy Lin Shin started teaching the Tai Chi that would eventually become the Taoist Tai Chi style that it is today. Thorough the years, he founded The Taoist Tai Chi Society, the Fung Loy Kok Institute of Taoism, and the Gei Pang Lok Hup Academy. Today, chapters of the Taoist Tai Chi Society can be found around the world, and his students continue to promote the teachings of Moy Lin Shin.
