In the fall of 1980, ten years after Master Moy Lin-shin founded the Taoist Tai Chi Society of Canada, one of his students, with the pioneering spirit often seen in our organization, moved to Edmonton and started teaching classes. In 1983, Master Moy made his first trip to western Canada. It was the first of many visits that led to a dramatic improvement in the level of instruction and gave a boost to participation.

At first, classes were offered in a small building on Whyte Avenue on the west edge of Mill Creek Ravine. In 1988, we expanded and rented the upper level of our current west Edmonton location on Stony Plain Road. With an aim to having participants better appreciate the rich heritage underlying the practice of Taoist Tai Chi® and to be introduced to the spiritual dimensions of the training, a section of the practice hall was used to build a Fung Loy Kok high shrine. In June 1990, Master Moy and Mr. Mui Ming To, co-founders of the Fung Loy Kok Institute of Taoism, travelled to Edmonton to lead the opening ceremonies and enliven the shrine.

In December 1990, our lease came up for renewal and Master Moy suggested that rather than continuing to rent the second floor, we should simply buy the whole building. With Master Moy’s guidance and the efforts of many volunteers, that dream became a reality. Master Moy quickly contacted the other Taoist Tai Chi® clubs to suggest they ‘send money’. And they did. Those interest-free loans, in combination with our savings and the financial support of participant donations, allowed us to purchase the building outright. In November 1991, we celebrated the grand opening and were delighted to have Master Moy lead the first workshop in what was now our new building.

For Master Moy, a good kitchen was always an important aspect of clublife. In the mid 1990’s we renovated, expanding the temple space upstairs and moving the kitchen downstairs to a much larger area. Master Moy encouraged us to put in a full Chinese kitchen with three commercial-sized woks. At the time, it was hard to imagine us ever needing quite that much kitchen. Today our participants continue to enjoy the community-building aspects of preparing and sharing meals together at workshops, between workshops and for special events such as our annual Chinese New Year Banquet, our Beginners’ Day Dinners and our Branch Christmas Party. We have also put all that kitchen to good use in helping others. Twice a year, over several years, we prepared and transported hot food to Edmonton’s Mustard Seed Church where we would often serve over 300 meals a night to those in need.

Currently in Edmonton, we continue to offer Taoist Tai Chi® arts classes from our main location on Stony Plain Road, as well as five part-time locations throughout the city. We also hold classes in the communities immediately surrounding Edmonton: Fort Saskatchewan, St. Albert and Sherwood Park. In addition, the Edmonton Branch supports classes in smaller centres such as Camrose, Leduc, Lloydminster, Wetaskiwin, Whitecourt in Alberta and Yellowknife in the Northwest Territories.
