-Because of the current Mixed Martial Arts craze, many people seem to be focused on Pay-Per-View fights and gyms that literally revolve around this style that takes elements from boxing, wrestling, and various other styles.

In spite of this, Master (Shifu) Chang Yuan, has opted for something different. He strives to go beyond simply kicking, punching and throwing, by emphasizing tradition, meditation, and other aspects of Chinese Culture. This is why he has opened up the Shaolin Tai Chi Cultural Center (STCCC), 9310 S. Eastern Ave.

Chinese martial arts teacher seeks to aid students in finding peace.

Five children in blue uniforms run around the room at the Shaolin Tai Chi Cultural Center, practicing their poses and punches before class. At the instruction of Shifu Chang Yuan, they race to the center of the room and sit cross-legged to begin meditating. "Because little kids don't have life experience, Shifu Yuan must set a good example," said instructor BeeLee Young. "He's strict, but they know he cares about them so much." Shifu is the Chinese title for teacher.

Yuan and his staff offer tai chi, kung fu, meditation and Chinese cultural classes at the center, 9310 S. Eastern Ave., Suite 123, which opened last June. His goal is to help the public find peace.
