Tai Chi Theories - 13 Songs & Study of Tai Chi Treatise
Theory 1 & Push Hand Basics
I have studied Taijiquan and Qigong continuously since 1991, and from 1996 to 2004 was the tai chi instructor for North Shropshire College, teaching all over North Shropshire. Since then I have taught privately, currently with several classes in my home town of Market Drayton, and a class in Telford. I have studied with Faye and Tary Yip since 2010, qualifying as a Deyin Institute Level 1 Instructor in 2013. In March 2019 I was given Level 4 instructor status.
I teach Yang 8, 16, 24 & 88 step forms, the Combined 42 step form, Yang 16 & 32 step sword forms plus Sun Style 13 & 38 step forms. All of the styles attempt follow the exact routines provided by direct instruction from Masters Faye & Tary Yip.
I also teach the details of tai chi principles, an introduction to applications, and some basic pushing hands training, along with tuition in various traditional Qigong styles.
My wife Sue is also a qualified Deyin Institute instructor, and in addition is an instructor for the British Health Qigong Association. She assists me at most of the Market Drayton classes, and provides additional Qigong sessions. From time to time she may fill in for me if I am unable to take a class.
Anybody is welcome at my classes, from beginner to experienced practitioner. More details are on my website.
I also offer one to one tuition at my home in Market Drayton for £25 per hour, though it is difficult for me to do this on a regular basis. Please feel free to ring me for more information.
