I began studying T'ai Chi Ch'uan in 1984 with Dr. John Kells of the British T'ai Chi Ch'uan Association.I have practised ever sinceand began teaching professionally in1989.


SanSou Practice


I have taught at, trained and provided teachersfor variousfitness and leisure centres,corporate clientsand other organisations.

Whilst studying Acupunctureat the College of Integrated Chinese Medicinein Reading in 1994,

I metDr. Shen Hongxun, founder of the Buqi Institute,

an organisation dedicated to bringing eastern knowledge to the west.


Bend Bow 1995


Born in Shanghai in 1939, Dr. Shen began his Taiji study aged 9,and was,in my opinion,the epitomeof authentic Taijiquan, aliving conduit to a past age,possessed of skills, knowledge and abilities far beyond the means or understanding of the modern generation of self styled famous teachers and "masters".


Shen Steps Out

I subsequently left Acupuncture collegeto study his teachingsin Taijiquan, Taijiwuxigong,Wuxi Meditation and Buqi, a Taiji based Energetic Healing systemofwhich I have been a qualified practitioner for several years.


Sword Walk


As a result of our close relationshipwe formed the Heaven Mountain Taijiquan College UK in 1996. Despite thepassingof Dr. Shen I continue tostudy, develop and teachTaiji, TaijiWuxiGong, Meditation, Qigong and Buqi Healing.
