Master Moy Lin-Shin

Moy Lin-Shin was a Taoist monk who studied Tai Chi, Qigong, Lok Hup, Hsin-I and Bagua in Hong Kong. After emigrating to Canada, he began teaching martial arts in a small studio.

When he found that his students needed to regain their health more than they needed to learn how to fight, he changed his teaching to better serve that need. He modified the Yang Style Tai Chi 108-move set by emphasizing turning,stretching, rising and falling.

In addition, he borrowed principles from BaGua, Hsing-I and Lok Hup to modify the set and supplemental exercises.

Master Moy was always attentive to the needs of each student. He would change his methods to suit the students’ needs, paying close attention to students with health problems. The instructors at the Academy aim to follow his example, helping each student follow his or her best path to the common goal of health improvement.

Master Moy passed away in 1998.

Master Moy’s Vision and our Mission

Every organization needs a vision and a mission to guide its steps. In our case, we are guided by the vision ofour late Sifu, Master Moy-Lin-Shin who foresaw:

A world without suffering from illness.

Master Moy frequently referred to the “four stages of life” as birth, aging, sickness, and death. Although birth, aging, and death are obviously inevitable, sickness can be prevented. With diligent practice, Full Extension Tai Chi and Lokhupbafa can help reduce sickness and prevent the suffering many of us would otherwise experience.
