I have been practicing the art of Tai Chi for around 15 years.  Nine years of those I have been a student with MDA.  I  attend classes in Harlepool with Mike Watson and Master John Ding on occasions.  I also attend instructors' courses and other weekend workshops with Master John Ding.

I first became interested in Tai Chi because I was diagnosed with asthma and wanted some control over the symptoms.  I did not realise that it was going to take me on a wonderful journey, where I would meet lots of new people and make some great friendships.  The social side of Tai Chi is like being part of one big family.

Since taking up Tai Chi, I have become healthier, physically fitter and a more confident person.  As a result of practicing Tai Chi I am a calmer person and my asthma is under control these days.
