Tai Chi Master Joins Pacific College

Pacific College is proud to welcome Tai Chi Master, Herman Kauz, to the college's adjunct teaching staff. Mr. Kauz started teaching Tai Chi Push-Hands to Pacific College students in February 2000. Mr. Kauz's classes are offered at no cost to Pacific College students as part of the college's mission to provide an environment conducive to both academic and personal growth.

Mr. Kauz's class offers an opportunity for students to open up, relax, and center themselves. Tai Chi Push-Hands acts as a mild form of relaxation exercise that can help concentration, strengthen the legs, reduce mental stress, and increase awareness of Qi in oneself and others. As a meditative training, Herman believes Tai Chi Push-Hands can help students to see themselves and others more clearly, as well as live more completely in each moment.

Herman Kauz is a direct student of the late Grand Master, Professor Cheng Man-Ching. He has advanced training in and has been a teacher of both external and internal martial arts systems since 1952. Herman Kauz is the author of well-regarded books in the field, including The Martial Spirit, A Path to Liberation; Push-Hands: The Handbook for Non-Competitive Tai Chi Practice with a Partner; and The Tai Chi Handbook.

After teaching martial arts in New York for many years, Mr. Kauz now lives and teaches in San Diego, California. Herman has been instrumental in advancing the practice of Tai Chi Chuan in America, and Pacific College is excited to have him on board.
