Tiffany Chen

Tiffany took up ballet, Hula dance, swimming and gymnastics at age 5.  She added praying mantis and a double knife form practice with her uncle Howard Lee.   At age eight, she started figure skating.   By age eleven, she won three gold medals in regional Figure Skating Competitions.  She took up ballroom dancing like the other skaters to improve her form, but when she over heard the dancers say one day that they were looking into Tai Chi to help their movements, she realized then that it was time for her to go back to see dad, Grandmaster William C.C. Chen.  She entered her first Push Hands competition at age 16, at the U.S.W.K.F. National Chinese Martial Arts Competition in Orlando, FL. Tiffany started competing in 1994.  She resumed competition on her return from college in 1997.  As of 2003, she has 43 Gold Medals.  One for Yang Style Tai Chi Form. 42 Gold Medals, Four Silver Medals, and Two Bronze medals for Fixed-Step, Restricted-Step, and Moving-Step T'ui Shou (Push Hands), close to half were international or world titles.  Tiffany began competing in Women's Lei Tai San Shou (Chinese Kickboxing on a raised platform) in 2003.  She won her first world championship in the event the same year, at the 2003 World Kuoshu Women's Lei Tai Championship in Sao Paolo, Brazil. She was also awarded the tournament trophy for The Best Lei-Tai Performance by a Female Athlete. As of  December 2005, her record is 7 - 4. Tiffany is a teaching assistant of Grandmaster Chen since 1996.   She started teaching her own classes since 1999 to individuals, group instructions to companies and their employees while training for her next competition. In December of 2004, Tiffany became a certified international judge/referee by the International Tai Chi Chuan Federation in Taipei, Taiwan.
