Chris Venaccio obtained his Master's Degree at the University
of Delaware in 1994. He has been working for JP Morgan Chase & Co.
for the past 10 years and currently holds the position as Assistant
Vice President of Business Cards.
Chris became interested in practicing a martial art for physical
exercise and self-defense. In his search for an art to study, a
friend told him about T'ai Chi Ch'uan. "I was not aware that T'ai
Chi was a martial art. I thought it was an exercise that older
people practiced." stated Chris as his initial idea of T'ai Chi.
He began studying T'ai Chi in 1997 and has been studying and practicing
the art diligently ever since. Chris continues to be fascinated
and exited by the many levels and subtleties of the martial aspects
of T'ai Chi.
Chris has discovered that T'ai Chi can be practiced by the old and
the young, and that has become one of the things he has come to enjoy
about the art and diversity at Ming Tao Studio. He continues to be
inspired by Sifu Diane Cannon 's knowledge, passion and sense of
fun for T'ai Chi. He experiences these qualities as extremely infectious
which translate into a learning environment that continues to attract
one to want more.
