FLK Taoist Tai Chi is a volunteer organization with locations in 26 countries. We bring together people of different languages and cultures in a worldwide community focused on furthering the aims and objectives established by our founder, Master Moy Lin Shin. At every location, people from all ages, backgrounds and walks of life learn, train and practice together. They have diverse reasons and motivations for their involvement, ranging from a simple enjoyment of the Taoist Tai Chi practice, to an interest in the health benefits, to the rewards of participation in a friendly and supportive community, to the pursuit of a spiritual path whose roots reach back to ancient times. All are welcome and encouraged to participate as they choose. The values that lie at the heart of our organization reflect the Taoist tradition. Volunteering and helping others are part of this path. As such all of our accredited instructors are volunteers.
