Join Internal Arts Institute - Tai Chi Training - Florida

Every Tai Chi school has its history, and the Internal Arts Institute is very proud of its beginning. Studies with some of the greatest instructors of Tai Chi Chuan and Qigong have allowed us to provide a truly unique and powerful experience to our students.

Dimitri K. Mougdis is a world expert in classical Yang family Tai Chi Chuan and Qi Gong, holding direct lineage from China through Nang Fing, through Gin Soon Chu from Boston, and through Yang Shou Chung of Hong Kong via Gin Soon Chu. He began his study of Tai Chi Chuan under Grand Master Gin Soon Chu in Boston on February 1, 1983. With over 38 years of study and 20 years of teaching, Sifu Dimitri is one of the last remaining instructors of the original classical Yang family forms.

In June of 2000, Sifu Dimitri established the Internal Arts Institute with the guidance of Grand Master Gin Soon Chu and Master Vincent Chu. The Internal Arts Institute is dedicated to teaching the true Classical Yang Family Tai Chi Chuan for promoting good mental and physical health as well as self-defense.

He also studied with Professor Ning Fang, who speaks fluent English and Japanese and graduated from an American Mission School, St. John University in Shanghai, China, in 1947 with degrees in Political Science and Economics. Fang Ning has been practicing and researching Qigong for more than 50 years and is the 5th generation successor to Orthodox Wudan Yang-Style Tai-Chi Chuan.

As a Physical Therapist, learning Tai Chi from Dimitri enhanced not only my personal health, but also the outcomes I have treating my patients. I've found Tai Chi to be effective at treating people with a wide variety of conditions, including but not limited to balance problems and joint pain. Dimitri is a wonderful, enthusiastic, friendly, knowledgeable, and dedicated teacher. He is very sincere about passing on true Yang Tai Chi to his students. I highly recommend him. Kevin
Tai chi, as practiced at the Internal Arts Institute, teaches humility, rewards perseverance, and reveals itself in a progression of epiphanies that constitute continual rebirth. It amounts to a simple truth endlessly refreshed and revealed with increasing illumination. Only a great teacher can make it thus. JC
