Olesya Amacker

Olesya Amacker began her study of Taijiquan in 2001 at the White Crow School of T’ai Chi Ch’uan in Moscow, Russia, where, under the guidance of Master Robert Amacker, she learned the complete Taijiquan curriculum: Solo Form, Tuishou, Three-step and Circular Tuishou, Da Lu, and Sanshou, and began the study of Taijijen (Taiji Sword). She continued her pursuit of the sword with Master Ken Van Sickle, who was one of Zheng Manqing’s famous “Second Seven” students of note, and who has devoted his life to the study of Taiji form and fencing, receiving from him in 2015 a certificate authorizing her as a teacher.
