I have been interested in Chinese martial arts for many years, but I never had the motivation to join a class. However, on New Year Day in 2007, I contacted Katherine Allen, a local Tai Chi teacher regarding joining on of her classes. I originally wanted to just do the Tai Chi hand form as a bit exercise, but stayed on to do everything else and more. New Year resolutions do last, if it means something to you. I found Tai Chi to addictive and I practice as often as I can. Frequent practice meant I became fitter and stronger through time. Over the years, I have progressed through the levels (grading) and have competed successfully at regional, national and European level. However, the learning never stops and I am always looking at new ways to improve my practice.
Tai Chi is a very broad art and there is always something for everybody. Tai Chi can improve your mind, body and soul. One's health is very important, that why I say its always a good idea to invest in your health.
Apart from Tai Chi, I also enjoy travelling, hiking and photography. I am by no means a professional photographer, but people have told me they like my pictures. Some of my pictures can be found on my VSCO account. I took most of the pictures on this website.
