I have been practising and teaching Tai Chi and Qigong in the Harrogate & Knaresborough areas for 29 years.

I am a Grade A Instructor with The Tai Chi Union for Great Britain

My teacher is Robert (Bob) France who as well as being a Tai Chi Master with over 30 yrs expereince is also a Reiki Master and very talented teacher of many Western and Eastern healing arts. He is now based in Thailand.

My other teacher is Nigel Sutton whose weekend seminars I have attended over the years, until 2009 when I was lucky enough to spend 2 months in Malaysia at Nigel’s training school. This was an experience I have waited years to take advantage of and having retired early from my teaching job I could finally go.
In 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 I was lucky enough to be able to go again for another couple of months each year. I have now spent a total of a year studying in Malaysia.
I am a 4th Duan Master Instructor with Zhong Ding International, certified with the Malaysian Association of Grandmasters of Martial Arts.

For those interested in what Nigel Sutton has to offer then the following links take you to  websites of his association which contains details of the many classes around the UK and courses in Malaysia.



The amazing photo below was taken from the training hall in Malaysia and shows a local Malaysian Water Lizard of about 210 cm, or for UK & USA 7 ft, long. There is also a film of the lizard on http://www.youtube.com
