Today, tai chi has gained its popularity due to its immense health benefits. The beautiful meditative tai chi movements have shown positive results in improving mental and physical health of its practitioners.

Many perceive Tai Chi as an art for the elderly people. This is not true. Chen Tai Chi is getting popular among young practitioners for its health benefits and combative applications including powerful strong 'Fajing' movements.

Indishe Senanayake started training Chen Style Tai Chi in 2006 under Master Liu Yong, an indoor student of Grandmaster Chen Zhenglei, 19th generation Chen Family inheritor. Indishe, an Okinawan Karate teacher with over 20 years of experience, introduced Chen Tai Chi to the general public of Sri Lanka for its health benefits. Many foreigners have trained Chen Style Tai Chi at his own Heiwa Martial Arts Academy in Sri Lanka. Indishe introduced 'Tai Chi for Health and Fitness' Programme as a part of the curriculum of engineering students at the University of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka in 2014 as an elective humanities module.

Indishe moved to Newcastle, NSW in mid 2016 to commence his PhD at the University of Newcastle. Currently, he is available for private lessons around Newcastle at his off hours.
