The Taipei County Shuai Chiao Association was formed by
David Chang to promote Shuai Chiao in northern Taiwan (Taipei County includes
Taipei City and all of the outlying suburban areas). David Chang is also the
chief instructor. The Taipei County Shuai Chiao Association practices at the
Taipei Botanical Gardens where Chang Tung Sheng himself taught for many years. The
Gardens are a Taipei landmark and provide a pleasant escape from the bustle of
Taipei City. Shuai Chiao, Lo Han, Hsing Jing, and qi gong are taught at
practice. There is also a Sunday practice at the
