Great River Taoist Center
Great River was founded in 1984 by a circle of friends practicing Taijiquan (Tai Chi Chuan) together who wanted to expand their practice. Initially, this group sponsored a “Visiting Masters Series” & a study/practice group. Over the years, many notable masters, including, Wang Yen-nian, T.T. Liang, William C .C. Chen & George Hu, amongst others lead trainings at the Center’s Washington, DC Branch. In time, the group focused its practice & organizing skills on bring together & training in all aspects of the Yang Family’s Taijiquan & the sister practice of traditional daoist (taoist) neigong. Over the last two decades, the Center has grown from a local group into an international school with branched in many countries. Today, Center director Scott M. Rodell & senior students, hold regular weekly classes in Washington & lead seminars in Europe and America. Senior GRTC student Bede Bidlack founded a sister school – Still Mountain Tai Chi – which now has branches in two American cities.
