For over 20 years I have been studying and learning various styles of Tai Chi. They include Northern Beijing Wu style, Yang style, Chen style and most recently, Fu style.
About 4 years ago I started teaching Tai Chi as a way of giving back some of what I have learned and as a way to support my own Tai Chi studies! Little did I know when I started teaching Tai Chi that it would be one of the best things I ever did for studying it myself. You can’t teach it unless you know it inside out and so it forces me to really focus on my own Tai Chi practice at a depth I never had before.
Here’s a bit more about my current teaching and what and who I’m studying with now.
Reeling Silk Tai Chi
Reeling Silk Tai Chi is my Tai Chi business and has its own website. There you will find my extensive “Tai Chi resume” and pictures of all the past and present teachers I have had the privilege of working with.
Currently I teach Yang style hand and sword Tai Chi forms Monday nights at Creekside Community Recreation Centre.
In the summer of 2015, I began studying Fu style Tai Chi and Xing-Yi from Grand Master Victor Shenglong Fu.
A 3rd generation master of the Fu style tradition, Sifu Fu is an excellent teacher and spends a great deal of one-on-one time helping his students to acquire their skills in a variety of Chinese martial arts, including Tai Chi, Ba Gua, Xing-Yi and others.
So far I have learned the 5 elemental fists and have begun work on the 12 animal forms.
It is a privilege to be one of his students.
