About Taijiquan - Welcome To Peter's Taijiquan Home Page. Welcome to my home page.
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. Over the years I've collected a modest library of literature on Taijiquan, both English language and Chinese language works. 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.
These articles are offered here freely for the benefit of the Taijiquan community. This site is still under construction and more material will be put up in due time.
