David Bao is a professional Tai Chi and Wushu instructor (6th Duan Wei). Born in 1977 in the Henan province in China, David inherited his martial arts skills from his ancestors from the Shaolin Temple under the strict guidance of his father.
Being the 7th generation descendant of the Shaolin Temple martial arts lineage, he started learning martial arts from the age of 4 and picked up Tai Chi when he was 16 years old. He trained under many masters. Among them are the famous Wang Er Ping, China’s national Wushu and Tai Chi team coach as well as Master Fu Sheng Yuan, a world renowned authority on Yang-style Tai Chi.
Since 2000, former 2006 World Tai Chi champion David has made Malaysia his home. With more than 25 years of teaching experience, he is passionate about his work because of the amazing results he has seen in his students.
In the past 4 years, I not only learnt the proper movement and breathing method of Tai Chi but also the philosophy and the spirit of Tai Chi. Teacher David would always share with his students about the essence of Tai Chi.
His teaching integrates the highest technical skill with elegance & grace of movement while also transmitting 'inner spirit and energy'. I can't recommend David highly enough to anyone seeking to deepen their Tai Chi practice - be it technically, energetically or spiritually.
