Mike Watson

I am a full time Tai Chi Chuan instructor in the Teesside area. I first began with external martial arts but due to receiving internal injuries I looked for an alternative art. I began Tai Chi at a local sports centre in 1994. I really became inspired when I met Master John Ding in 1995 and after regular visits and training in London, I became an instructor in 1998. 

 
Whilst working in the motor trade I stated as a part time Tai Chi instructor on evening and weekends. In 2005 I took the plunge and decided to teach Tai Chi full time. I now run twenty-eight classes in the Teesside area. 

 
Tai Chi has brought me,  focus and balance in my life.
I enjoy enriching other people’s quality of life through the teaching aspect as well.
