Guy Tomash has been practicing the Traditional Yang style of Tai Chi Chuan for over 30 years, and has been teaching Tai Chi classes in Vancouver for more than 20 years. He began his instruction in 1983 from the Alberta Tai Chi Chuan Cultural and Recreation Association under the direction of Master Mak Ying Po, and received most of his training with one of Master Mak’s senior students, Andy Wong.
The lineage of Mak Ying Po is the Yang style of Tai Chi Chuan from Yang Cheng Fu, a 3rd generation master of the Yang Family. It was through one of Yang’s senior students, Tung Ying Chieh, that Mak Ying Po learned Tai Chi Chuan. Tung Ying Chieh was among the top disciples of Yang Cheng Fu, and one of the most famous exponents of Yang style Tai Chi.
Guy Tomash is thankful for his opportunity to learn this wonderful art, and is dedicated to sharing and carrying on the traditions of Yang style Tai Chi Chuan as he was taught.
