'Lineage' means a direct line of decent.

 In tai chi it
suggests an unbroken chain of teaching from the creation of tai chi to the present day.
 For many people, lineage is a critical concern: who taught your teacher and who taught their teacher?
 And is the tai chi 'authentic'?

Lineage depicts the tai chi system as a jewel passed reverently from master to master, unchanged by time or temperament.
