History

In the mid 1980's, one of Master Moy's students came to Regina for a summer job, and in the evenings volunteered to teach a beginner Tai Chi class. One beginner became so interested that he flew to Toronto to ask Master Moy if classes could be taught here regularly. Master Moy then asked another student to volunteer to come to Regina. That student began teaching classes in the fall of 1986. A small group practiced in low-rent areas of Regina's downtown for years. As their numbers and proficiency grew, some began teaching at Master Moy’s request, and the group soon moved to more inviting locations. Over the first twenty years, what was to become the Regina Branch of the Taoist Tai Chi Society of Canada was unable to afford an expensive lease and moved twelve times, often in the middle of the freezing winter.

In 1999, one of Master Moy's senior students who was visiting Regina suggested buying a building. For a small volunteer group of less than a hundred people, this was a daunting suggestion. At that time, the few buildings owned in Canada were all in cities of a half million or more. But our sister-branches in Alberta pitched in to help and, with support from the National and International directors, and the generous donations of hundreds of participants and branches around the world, we purchased a property, began construction in 2005, and celebrated the Grand Opening of Saskatchewan's first permanent Taoist Tai Chi Society of Canada centre on May 20, 2006.

Since 2001, many of our volunteer instructors, with the aid of participants immigrating from other provinces, have started classes in Saskatoon, Maple Creek, and Moose Jaw. In Regina, we have also started a class for participants with special challenges, some of whom cannot stand or walk.
