Dale Napier, author of Tai Chi In Your Life, is a Chuan Zen, or lineage transmitter, of Yangjia Michuan Tai Chi Chuan, an early version of Yang family Tai Chi that predates Yang Cheng-fu. He has been practicing martial arts since 1965, and Tai Chi Chuan since 1977. Although he chose to focus his Martial Arts study on Tai Chi Chuan years ago, before that he trained in ninjutsu, karate, judo, Northern Shaolin kung fu and Tae Kwon Do. A former Tai Chi teacher at the University of Houston Downtown, he now teaches at the Houston Arboretum and Nature Center. In addition to his Martial Arts study, Napier is a longtime writer and database administrator. He has a Bachelor of Journalism degree from the University of Texas at Austin, and went on to graduate studies at the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs. His articles on Tai Chi and Qigong have appeared since 2007 in Kung Fu Tai Chi Magazine and The Journal of Asian Martial Arts, including personal interviews with the grandmasters of the five major styles of Tai Chi - Yang, Chen, Wu, Wu/Hao, and Sun. He has more articles and a new book in the works.
