20th generation Tai Chi Master Brings Tradition to KC

By Alex Smith

Kansas City, MO – The Great Plains is not exactly the setting you might imagine for the continuation of a dynasty of tai chi masters. But when the descendant of the inventors of this martial art moved to KC, she brought with her a rich tradition that has been part of her family for centuries. KCUR's Alex Smith brings us to the Shawnee, Kansas studio where this master and her husband teach and practice.
