Centers are important in the history, culture and development of our organization. They allow participants to gather, volunteer and train together, helping people from locations around the world to learn, practice and develop their understanding of the Taoist arts as taught by Fung Loy Kok Taoist Tai Chi.
The International Centre, established in 1984, is located on 100 acres on the beautiful Niagara Escarpment. It includes large practice halls, temples and accommodation. The facilities were built after decades of planning and effort on the part of Master Moy Lin Shin and many dedicated volunteers. They stand as a testimony to the enthusiastic support and generosity of the worldwide community of Fung Loy Kok/International Taoist Tai Chi Society participants. Centre operations depend on volunteers and are financially supported by donations.
This Centre conducts a full schedule of programs that offers participants an opportunity to cultivate body and mind.

The historic Fenway Hotel building at 453 Edgewater Drive in Dunedin is reaching completion. Mainsail Lodging and Development is now in partnership with the Taoist Tai Chi Society to complete renovations and manage the historic hotel. The Society will continue work on the remaining buildings on the property. This includes our new International Center Florida – Practice Hall, located at 280 Locklie Street, Dunedin. The practice hall will be 12,000 sq ft and able to hold Society Programs starting in May of 2018.

The Fenway Hotel building sits on the waterfront near the heart of Dunedin and will contain 83 rooms, roof top bar, spacious dining room and banquet room within the 52,000 square foot building originally constructed in 1924 and opened in 1927.
