Peter Lim's Taijiquan Resource 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. Feel free to download them and distribute them. I ask only that you don't change the contents and keep my name on them for copyright purposes.

This site is still under construction and more material will be put up in due time. Check back regularly for updates. As I have only recently taken up HTML, please forgive any shortcomings on this site. Your feedback will help to make it better.

A Word Of Thanks To My Teachers

I'd like to thank and acknowledge my teachers whose strict teachings and strong moral character have been inspirational and essential to my martial arts development. My knowledge and skills come from their unselfish sharing of the arts they love so well and I will continue to train, to study and to try to help others, hoping that I will not disappoint them.
