TheWorld Taiji Boxing Association
"The WTBA is an organization of like minds from all over the world coming together in friendship and harmony (well most times).
Erle Montaigue began the Australian Taiji Boxing Association back in 1979. It soon became clear that the organization had outgrown the 'Australian' part so we changed it to the World Taiji Boxing Association.
Erle Montaigue is the head of the WTBA worldwide and we have a number of Country Representatives around the world. These are students and friends who have trained with Erle for many years and have risen to a high level of competence in Erle's system of Internal Gung-fu.
We now have representatives in around 30 countries with well over 10,000 students being in some way associated with the WTBA as 'WTBA members'.
There is no real hierarchy in the WTBA as this is how Erle Montaigue likes it, plain and simple without titles or bowing down to anyone, just a bunch of friends training together with a like goal of harmony and great good health and along the way perhaps some self defense.
The WTBA has no uniforms or any other patches or other lofty names like 'Sensei' or Master or Loucher etc. We are simply here to help each other up the ladder."
