Hello! My name is Mike I am a sculptor/illustrator in the U.S. I am a Chen style taiji student. I am studying Mandarin so in the future when I return to China I can enjoy more meaningful conversations with the wonderful people there. I am planning a trip back where I can explore some of the country and return to Henan Provence to continue my taiji studies. I also practice calligraphy and I am learning xiangqi.
