As a young man Master Wang studied several external martial arts and taught self defense in the Taiwanese army. Later he began the study of tai chi with several masters in Taiwan. His primary influence was Grandmaster Huang of Malaysia.

Master Wang competed regularly in push hands events in Taiwan, with both national and international participants. He was push hands champion for several years winning international competitions. However, he felt discouraged because so much physical force and technique was required to defeat an opponent.

He had read the tai chi classics which talked about softness and "four ounces moving a thousand pounds", but this was not evident in tai chi push hands in present use. Only after meeting Grandmaster Huang did he realize that soft power could be achieved. He studied with Huang, when he visited Taiwan and realized he had to give up his prior emphasis on strength and technique.

After arriving in Canada, he had the time and opportunity to research tai chi and improve his skills. He developed Search Center to replace push hands. Search Center emphasizes use of chi energy and softness rather than physical strength. The hands no longer push, but rather act as antennae or "feelers" to detect a partner's center. The power comes from internal chi energy and is expressed through a person's center. This center is composed of the head, spine, dantien, and extends to the ground.

Master Wang teaches that tai chi must have a philosophical basis and that originates from Daoist concepts of softness and letting go. The softness must be practiced through regular tai chi form which also cultivates internal chi energy. He uses the thirty-seven posture Yang form condenced by Grandmaster Cheng Man-ching. He teaches both left and right sides. Finally he believes that the philosophy and practice must be integrated with useful applications which he calls search center. The three aspects are inter-related. If one wants to successfully learn search center, then their form must be correct and vice versa. He is one of very few tai chi masters who actually use chi and not li (physical force).

His form and search center are based on seven fundamental principles. Relaxation, Concentration, Center, Balance, Proportion, Circle, and Coordination. He feels these principles are applicable to all tai chi styles and indeed all martial arts. His principles have some fundamental differences to tai chi as taught in most schools. He espouses three possible weight distributions: 100%, 0%, and 50%. This is in contrast to the concept of 70-30% distribution. His ideas require a center which has very minimal movement and no leaning of the body. He also teaches one to turn the center first and then shift weight as opposed to shifting weight and then turning. Without maintaining a center there can be no balance and without balance there can be no power. His extraordinary martial skills attest to the validity of his tai chi principles.
