Zhao You Bin, Xian
Zhao You Bin is a highly regarded master of traditional Yang style Tai Chi Chuan. He is the son of Zhao Bin who was a senior disciple and nephew of Yang Chen Fu.
Mr Zhao is based in Xian and is the President of the Xian Yongnian Yang-style Taiji Quan Association.
He is also the head of a Yang Family Tai Chi Association in Hong Kong and Shenzhen with links to many good Yang Style teachers in the area.
Master Zhao has a Yang Style Tai Chi training studio in Xian in which students can enrol. Teaching is carried out by Zhao You Bin and his assistant teachers who are also very good, some having learnt with him for a decades.
He spends most of his year in Xian, but from time to time goes away for 5 to 10 days to teach workshops around China, Hong Kong, Thailand, Korea, Singapore and Japan. During these periods students can either travel with Master Zhao to attend the workshop or stay in Xian and study with one of his disciples.
Master Zhao tailors his teaching to match each studentís individual ability and physical condition, as well as their personal requirements. He will arrange suitable translators to assist in his work and has expressed his wish to meet all studentsí expectations as far as possible.
Zhao You Bin speaks some English himself and so contact can be made with him directly via the contact form on this site. His son will also receive a copy of enquiries and may assist him.
Master Zhao may also be available to teach workshops overseas. He has provided the China Taichi Guide with relevant information so if organisers contact me, I am happy to pass this on.
There is a beautiful video online of Zhao You Bin's form : Zhao You Bin Yang Style 85
Please contact the school.
Master Zhao You Bin is one of the most senior traditional Yang style tai chi teachers in China today and so there may be good opportunities here for students interested in learning Yang style taichi as practised by Yang Chen Fu.
