I started studying Tai Chi in 2002, and met my shifu Yuan Li Min at his school on the Wudang Mountains, China in 2006. Since then I have spent a total of around 2 years training full time in Wudang. In so doing I have learned the Chinese language, and now organise training retreats to the school in China and host workshops with my teacher in the UK. If you would like to hear more about my story, check out this article from Martial Arts Illustrated.

To have a look at what life in the mountains is like, please see the Media and Retreats pages.
