Master Chin and Sifu TW. Smith were interviewed in early 2006. The following is an excerpt from the article.
"Becoming a Tai Chi Master is a lifelong
commitment. It doesn’t just happen overnight. Traditionally the
knowledge is passed from teacher to student in a relationship based on
time, dedication, and trust.
For Chin, the journey to master has proven harrowing and epic – from fleeing communism to suffering three heart attacks and multiple bypass surgeries, and then relearning his own teaching to ensure his own recovery.
