My History…

 

as a Tai Chi Practicioner

I have been practicing tai chi for over two decades and have trained under several instructors over these years from around North America and China. 

I practice the Yang, Sun, and Chen styles as well as the National Combined Routines.  In certain styles, I not only practice the fist forms, but the various sword (straight and broad), fan, and other weapon routines.

 

Each of my teachers has given me a different insight into the beautiful art of tai chi – be it from the martial art side or health promoting aspects.  However, I must say that my most recent instructors have had a big impact on my style and most importantly, on my enthusiasm for the art.

These inspirational instructors are:

as a Teacher

It felt like it was only yesterday, but I started teaching tai chi on September 11, 2001 (yes, the very day that 9/11 happened) in a small community room in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.  Shortly after then I began teaching all across Canada.   I really don’t believe it, but I have been teaching tai chi for about a decade now.
