The 63-year-old began practicing Chinese tai chi since he was a teenager. Throughout his lifetime, Juan has visited Central China's Henan province to learn tai chi more than 20 times. In the year of 2011, he was accepted as an apprentice of Chen-style tai chi Grand Master Chen Zhenglei.

Now, Juan is the director of Chen-style tai chi's Latin American Association. Thanks to his hard work, more than 100 Peruvians have learned Chen-style tai chi.
