Private Lessons

I am offering private lessons for anyone who is interested in learning Sun style Tai Chi.

This form is not widely taught in the West and represents an interesting synthesis of Tai Chi, Xingyi and Ba Gua.

I can be contacted via this blog or my website

My teacher is an indoor student of the late Sun Jian Yun, seen in the clip below.

Xingyi Five Elements and Linking Form

Although my main interest is Tai Chi, my Sun style teachers also shared the Xingyi they had learned.

I am in no way proficient in it so this is just me having a go. Neither do I teach any of it as my understanding is very basic and my Instructor Certificate authorises me to teach Sun style Tai Chi only.

All mistakes are mine. I actually find this much harder than Tai Chi even though it appears simpler on the surface. But I like it!

The knocking exercise gently conditions the inside and outside of the forearms.

It is also useful for learning to move with another person.
