Dario Milana

Nel 1995 ho avuto la fortuna di trovare in una grande libreria milanese un volantino che annunciava un corso di Tai Chi Chuan. Fu l'occasione in cui incontrai il Maestro Chu King Hung, responsabile europeo della ITCCA. Al termine dello stage il Maestro mi consigliò di cominciare la mia pratica col suo responsabile per l'Italia, Carlo Lopez.

Da allora non ho mai smesso, e un esercizio assiduo mi ha accompagnato in ogni istante di un percorso in continua crescita. Grazie agli insegnamenti di Lopez e del Maestro Chu, sono diventato insegnante ITCCA nel 1998.

Altra tappa fondamentale nel mio cammino è stato, nel 2004, il prezioso riconoscimento di discepolo del Maestro Chu.
