I started to learn Tai Chi with Sifu Ding way back in 1984 and continue training with Sifu once a week on the Wednesday advanced group. As one of John’s longest students I have gained a phenomenal amount of theoretical and practical Tai Chi knowledge.


As the years have rolled by I have used Chi Kung healing on other people and from this I now study and practice several Quantum healing modalities.
