Master Ren was born in China and learned the art of Tai Chi in its native birthplace: the Chen Village. He was a student and disciple of Chen Style Tai Chi Lineage Holder Grandmaster Chen Xiaowang.
Devoting himself to teaching and improving the health and mindset of his students, Master Ren has created his C.A.R.E. Method, assisting each student to progress in their practice by being Calm, Alert, Relaxed and Energized.
Over the years, his extraordinary skills and warm personality have landed him celebrity clientele including Hugh Jackman, Bette Midler, and the late Lou Reed—who had credited Master Ren with adding 10 years to his life—as well as features in major media platforms. He’s appeared on ESPN, The National Examiner, the Late Show on CBS, and profiles on the covers of Kung Fu Qigong (the predecessor of Kung Fu Tai Chi Magazine), Qi Magazine, Journal of Asian Martial Arts, and World Journal Weekly among others.
