1st Teng Sanshou (Sanda); 1st Teng Tai Chi; Advanced Tui Na Practitioner
I have been training in all aspects of the Li-Style Family system for over 10 years, under Master Tony Swanson, Taoist Arts Organisation (TAO) Technical Director. Having trained in Shotokan Karate for several years before, I was fascinated from the outset with what I saw and experienced in this internal Martial Arts and Health System. I was drawn to the breadth, depth, beauty and power of the Li-Style. I have competed at National and European championships in Tai Chi, Tui Shou, Qingda, and Sanshou and currently hold British and European championship titles in these. I continue to learn and develop, regularly attending training and residential courses. There is always more to discover! I feel lucky to be able to coach and help students develop and achieve their personal goals.
