These individuals were hand selected by Master Ting for additional intensive instruction in the system of his lineage Wu Ji Jing Gong. By tradition, potential teachers are chosen because they have exhibited traits of personal integrity, such as
Confidence, Modesty, Sincerity, Perseverence, and Understanding. Master Ting strongly believes that the future standing of Tai Chi as a distinguished martial art and vital discipline for healthy living will depend not only upon technical skill and knowledge, but also on the values of the individuals who teach it. The reflection of one's internal character is often the means by which others form an opinion of one's reputation. The essence of Tai Chi is based upon harmony and unity; however, in the hands of an individual of questionable character, the power of Tai chi could be destructive. Traditionally, Chinese Masters were very selective as to who received the deepest training so as not to dishonor the reputation of their lineage or the integrity of the art. In that same respect Master Ting has chosen to recognize only those persons who have been personally selected and trained by him to teach the Wu Ji Jing Gong system of Tai Chi.
