 Y.M.A.A. Tai Chi Ch'uan of Wisconsin is a branch of Yang's Martial Arts Association International (YMAA) which has schools across the world.  Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming is the founder of that organ-ization. He is a Master of several Martial Art Styles and an Internationally known author of Qigong and Martial Arts Training books and materials. Angela Laughingheart first began Taijiquan studies with YMAA in 1991 and has been owner and operator of YMAA Tai Chi Ch'uan of Wisconsin since 2004.  Angela recently returned from a 2.5 year stint at the YMAA Retreat Center in Northern California which included independent studies in Taijiquan & Qigong.
