Great Master Fu Sheng Yuan

By Diana Roque
Santa Luzia' Garden - Viana do Castelo /Portugal
Grandmaster Fu is a Tai Chi reference in our times for several reasons. He represents nowadays the Authentic Yang Tai Chi Traditional Style, and he was born in the middle of Tai Chi. His father, Great Master Fu Zhong Wen, was the closest disciple of Yang Cheng Fu (brother of his Grandfather). He learned the genuine Tai Chi and has cultivated it like a treasure must be preserved and respected.

A Great Master and a Great Man as we can understand by his noble look and posture, as well as for his wisdom words and behaviour, which are the reflected image of his mind and spirit. As Tao illustrates, he lives life in a natural way, always with a gentle smile that shines warming our hearts giving us a feeling of strenght and quietness, Yin and Yang as Tao itself.
Dear Grandmaster Fu, we are grateful and very proud for having you as our guide on the long road of perseverance, patience and respect that learning Tai Chi implies.
We wish you an Healthy and Happy Long Life.
