Su Rule (Principal Instructor)
Su first began Tai Chi in the early 1980’s, studying with Doctor Li Wong, a traditional Chinese doctor teaching and prescribing Qigong and Tai Chi to his patients for prevention and recovery from illness.
In the 1990’s, Su began training with Master Charles Tsui-Po and gained national and international recognition after competing at numerous local, state and national competitions; and eventually as Australia’s female representative in two World Wushu Championships and five World Traditional Championships held in Asia. As part of her own development, and in parallel with competition training, Su gained a 1st Degree Black Sash, 3rd Duan Grading and began teaching for Master Charles in 2000.
In 2008, Su discovered the Wudang style while competing at the 3rd World Traditional Championships in Wudang, China. After studying and training on her own for 2 years, Su entered an international competition in Hong Kong and met Wudang Master Yun Xiang Tseng (Wudang Chen) who invited her to train in Wudang, China. Su is honoured to have been a student of Grand Master Zhong Yun Long and to be recognised as Wudang San Feng Australia.
On her return from training in Wudang in 2011, Su founded Chi Generation and began teaching this beautiful style of Tai Chi here in Australia. From small beginnings, Su now runs a full timetable of weekly classes, with regular workshops and annual retreats here in the hills and in the regional centres of Victoria, sharing her passion for Tai Chi and the Wudang style.
“My journey to find the core of these arts is not complete, and I doubt it ever will be – but after years of study, training, travelling and teaching, I have found my place here in translating the Taoist ideas and practices into movements, forms and concepts more easily understood by a western mind.”
