About Joe Eber

A long-time student of Tai Chi, I started studying the Yang style of tai chi in 1981 with the late Sidney Austin.  In 1985 I began studying the Wu style with Sophia Delza until her passing in 1996.  I also studied the Hao style and a smattering of Sun and Chen styles.   Since 1996, I have been studying the Wu Ji Jing Gong system of Qigong, Tai Chi and Bagua with Master William Ting, one of the highest level experts worldwide in tai chi chuan (see My Lineage below) .  As one of Master Tings' most experienced students,  I am also a senior instructor for Master Ting's school Silver Tiger Tai Chi.

I am certified as a Master Practitioner and Trainer in

NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming), a level 2 Reiki practitioner, and I have studied Traditional Chinese Healing with Brian Coffey and Fran Maher.

Having retired from the business world in 2019, I have been living and teaching the Wu Ji Jing  Gong system of tai chi in Ocala, Florida.

What We Teach

Tai Chi

Tai Chi is characterized by slow, continuous, circular movements, with an emphasis on internal energy and calm, quiet awareness.  On the surface it appears to be a physical exercise, beautiful to watch, very graceful like a dance.  

Qi Gong

Qigong is the study and practice of nurturing your own life force.  The word “qi” is the Chinese term that defines the energy of being.   "Gong” is the word that refers to the gradual accumulation of knowledge, skills and/or abilities that are achieved through ones own experience, and years of diligent practice and study.


Bagua utilizes quick and light, circular walking, with large expansive movements. Bagua contains an extremely wide variety of techniques as well as weapons, including various strikes


Considered the most noble and distinguished among weapons.  Both men and women can participate on the same levels in mastering the art of the sword, although women especially find the grace of this form appealing.  

Push Hands

Pushing hands is said to be the gateway for students to experientially understand the martial aspects of the internal martial arts (內家 nèijiā): leverage, reflex, sensitivity, timing, coordination and positioning.
