I learrned it in Chicago, IL
My teacher is an acupuncturist by profession and he taught numerous styles of qigong and taijiquan. He is a somewhat known teacher and wrote a few textbooks on TCM (acupuncture and herbal medicine) used in schools in EU and USA.
I believe that he went to school in Jilin back in the 1950s but went to Beijing at some later period before he came to USA. His father was a TCM physician in Cuba!

Is Shi Kun Wu your former or current teacher? I'm interested in studying Li Style and am in Chicago. Posted about it on the finding a teacher forum.

I think it's a good thing that people stop calling themselves masters. While for some phases in cultivation a professional-traditional relationship is beneficial, during others a friendship-relaxed approach nourishes the Heart better.
You would avoid striving in people and perfectionism. Healthy human activity and relationships, guided by Daoist principles, could really help our world get better.

And well... if you claim to be a master, at least be able to back it up.

Dr Wu is my former teacher! I last studied with him about 20 years ago. The school was called Kang Tai Taiji center.
