Through Sifu Genie, who is a disciple of Grandmaster Eddie Wu Kwong Yu, the Academy has direct lineage to the International Wu Style Tai Chi Chuan Federation and is certified by the Wu family. Grandmaster Wu is the head of the fifth generation of the Wu family and the Gatekeeper of Wu Style. He visits the Academy at least once a year, providing instruction and guidance.
The school is headed by Sifu Genie Parker, Chief Instructor-Midwest, who has over thirty years' experience training and teaching Wu Style Tai Chi Chuan. She is the first non-Chinese woman to take on disciples for the Wu family, and only the third person in North America to be so honored.
