Chinese Internal Exercise in Cambridge - Tai Chi Chuan - Chi Kung - Hsing I Chuan
Join a growing community of Tai Chi, Chi Kung and Hsing I students in Cambridge. I have taught in London since 1982 and have many long-standing students there and I have extended my teaching to Cambridge where my family and I are based. I am interested in taking on serious students who want to invest time in getting to grips with the complex nature of these nuanced arts and appreciate their history and philosophy as well as the physical benefits. For more information on each of the three subjects offered please see the links in this website’s menu.
