My name is Peter Lim Tian Tek. These web pages are dedicated to the art of Taijiquan which I have practiced since I was a young boy.

Combining both practice and the study of these works have made Taijiquan emmensely rewarding for me and lately I have begun to record down my research and practice in written form.
