About Jan's Tai Chi

What is Tai Chi?

Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese martial art. In regards to ancient teachings, we are reframing older language to suite the modern mind.  Jan Lucanus coaches Tai Chi as a human performance tool.  Jan works with top athletes, CEOs, and those seeking access to practical power in daily life.

Lineage

Jan's parents both trained Tai Chi & Kung Fu, and raised him around their masters in New York's Chinatown.  Jan studied directly under masters from a range of disciplines, including Shaolin monks Shi Yan Ming and Shi Xing Peng, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Professor John Machado, and Lama Kung Fu Master David Ross.  Jan also fought semi-pro Sanshou (Chinese Kickboxing mixed with Mongolian Wrestling) under renowned Beijing Coach Li Ti Liang on the NY International Sanshou Team under Captain Novell G. Bell.  Jan was privileged to study Wu Style Tai Chi under Sifu Keith Tong (lineage to Grandmaster Wu Gong Yi), Liu Ho Ba Fa Water Boxing under Sifu Cheng Ki Chang, and Reverse-Breathing Yang Style Tai Chi under Grandmaster William C. C. Chen (disciple of Grandmaster Cheng Man-ch'ing). In 2004, Jan was recruited onto the US Tai Chi Push Hands Team by Push Hands World Champion, coach, and chess prodigy Josh Waitzkin.  Jan was later elected Captain of the US Tai Chi Push Hands Team (2009-2011) and coached the team alongside his father, World Champion Jan C. Childress.

Tai Chi Push Hands is Mindful Wrestling™

Tai Chi is also played as a very fast competitive sport known as Tuishou or Push Hands.  Jan's unique adaptation of Tai Chi Push Hands is a system of knowing yourself and others through pressure exercises with partners.  This exercises greatly assist in making the cerebral become kinesthetic, train tactical empathy by helping you relate to tension in your partners, and allow us to strategize from long form pattern recognition.
