All classes are taught under the supervision of Marilyn Feeney and Michelle Swanson, both of whom trained with Willem Reeders, the school founder, for many years. Marilyn Feeney was certified by Willem Reeders, and is the only person he certified to teach Tibetan Tai-Chi.
Willem Reeders founded the school in Albuquerque in 1985. Willem was often called Liu-Seong in honor of his great-uncle, Liu-Seong Sr., who taught Willem this art. Liu-Seong Sr., himself, came out of the Shao-Lin Temple. At the age of four years, Willem began twice a day training with Liu-Seong Sr. When Willem was twelve years old, his great-uncle commenced sending him to China for 100 days every year. There, Willem underwent rigorous, intensive training in the temple for twelve consecutive years. After twelve years of study, he was certified by the 13th Dalai Lama.
