Offering Wu Style Tai Chi classes (group and/or individual) - authentic Chinese martial arts!

Methodology

I will be teaching the Wu Style Tai Chi 108 form. This is a set of 108 movements with emphasis on the basics of body coordination and alignment.

I will explain each movement in detail without any mystery, with an emphasis on combining traditional Chinese concepts and Western sport science and biology. It is very important to me that each student feels comfortable with every individual movement.

Wu Style Tai Chi focuses on strengthening the bones, tendons and ligaments in our body. Instead of relying on muscular power, the so called "Tai Chi" power comes from the synchronised movement of our bones tendons, ligaments. Each movement must feel full, stable and fluid, without any "breaks".

Experience

I am offering Wu Style Tai Chi classes for all ages!! I come from Hong Kong, and have 7 years experience in Chinese Martial arts, mainly in Wu Style Tai Chi (吳太極太極拳) and Yiquan (意拳). I am currently a PhD student at the University of Nottingham.

Wu Style Tai Chi is a great way of dramatically improving your breathing, blood circulation, and the function of your tendons and ligaments! It also helps to improve your balance, stability and overall mental health!

Wu Style Tai Chi lineage - my grandfather studied under Master Cheng Tin Hung (鄭天熊), founder of the Hong Kong Tai Chi association (香港太極總會). I also studied for a while in the Wu's Tai Chi Chuan Academy in Hong Kong, run by Grandmaster Eddie Wu (the lineage holder of Wu Style Tai Chi).

Alan's CV

2013/2014 - Started studying Wu Style Tai Chi under my grandfather, who studied under Master Cheng Tin Hung (鄭天熊), founder of the Hong Kong Tai Chi association (香港太極總會).

2016/2017 - To improve on my knowledge of internal martial arts, I started studying Yiquan (意拳) under my uncle, who studied under Master Han Xing Qiao (韓星橋). Yiquan is essentially a condensation of all the internal martial arts (Xing Yi Quan, BaguaZhang, Tai Chi, Liuhebafa) and goes back to the core principles and building from there.

Alan is a very helpful and diligent tutor, and he helped me greatly with my IB Economics exams. He explains things in a concise manner, and always makes sure that I understand what he is talking about before proceeding to the next topic. He provided me with a lot of past paper questions, and helped me go through each question one-by-one, and I ended up getting a much higher grade than expected!
