I am an artist and narrowboat owner. I came to tai chi in the 1990's after an abrupt finish to my amateur rowing career. The flow and energy of the form were mesmerising to me.

After a few years attending seminars and weekly classes, I took a couple of trips to China to learn at the source in Chenjagou. I started to teach tai chi as it is widely believed that in order to learn you must teach. Within every teacher there is a student and within every student there is a teacher.

I teach Qigong and Chen Style tai chi, including weapons forms. I was very reluctant to pick up a sword but through the encouragement of my teacher I began with the sword. I quickly took up broadsword, double broadsword and spear. I am determined to continue my adventure into the different weapons forms. They bring a vigour to the study of tai chi that is simply unparalleled.

My teachers include Grand Master Chen Xiaowang, Master Chen Yingjun, Eva and Karol Koskuba of CIAA, Reading.

I am a member of the Tai Chi Union of Great Britain (TUGB).


This person isn't learning anything yet. Why not send them some inspiration by messaging them?
