Jeg er en kvalifisert fysioterapeut som utviklet interesse for Tai Chi mens han deltok i et akupunkturstudium i Kina i 1998. Jeg begynte å studere med Dr Lam i 2006 på sin egen skole, Better Health Tai Chi Chuan, og nå instruerer jeg det hver uke.
Jeg har tatt tai chi inn i min fysioterapipraksis, som har blitt veldig godt mottatt.
I am proficient in a number of forms and in 2013 I spent a week in Zhuhai, China, studying the Chen 36 Form with Dr Lam. back to the toppMargaret BradeSecretary
