James Drewe became involved in the Chinese Health Arts in 1975 when he began studying Gongfu and Taijiquan. He rapidly became interested in the philosophy behind these forms of exercise and also in both meditation and the use of diet to promote health. Since then he has taken an interest in a variety of other health arts and qualified as an acupuncturist.
In 1980 he began learning the Yang family style of Taijiquan and Zhan Zhuang Qigong under Master Chu King Hung and has also studied Zhan Zhuang Qigong with Master Lam Kam Chuen.
He later broadened his Taiji training with Richard Watson, learning the
core syllabus of both Hand and Sword Forms of the ‘modern’ Yang style; he has also studied many of these with both Professor Li Deyin, Master Wang Yanji, and Master Huang Ping.
James has studied the following forms: The Yang 10, 16, 24, 40, 88, and 108-Step Forms, the Yang 16, 32, and 56-Step Forms, the Chen 56-Step Competition Form, the Wudang Taiji Sword Form, the Sun 97-Step Form, the Yang Broadsword, the Taiji Fan Form, the Yang 18-Step Fan Form, the Sun 73-Step Competition Form, and the Wu 45-Step Competition Form.
In Qigong, apart from Zhan Zhuang Qigong, he has studied a therapeutic
Qigong called Daoyin Yangsheng Gong, which consists of sets of exercises for the cardiovascular, digestive, respiratory, and skeletal systems, as well as exercises for the 5 major organs with Richard Watson, Mark Atkinson, Hu Xiao Fe, and Professor Zhang Guande.

James is a member of the Tai Chi Union of Great Britain, and runs
classes in both London and Kent. He currently teaches a wide variety of forms, which are taught alongside pushing hands, da lu, applications of the forms, and fa jin techniques.

  • Tai Chi Saturday Regular Workshop - all levels

    This is a once-a-month class, and is for all levels.

    The class focusses on 2-person tai chi, so there is some Pushing Hands and a 2-Person Tai Chi Form called Dui Lian.

    The movements are in effect a taiji form for 2 people doing different movements, but with the movements interconnecting.

  • The aim is to learn both sides.
  • The form is useful as it explains the use/application of individual taiji movements/postures.
  • No previous experience is necessary as it will be geared to all levels.
