Welcome and thanks for visiting. if you’re interested in Tai Chi for Health, Traditional Chinese Martial Arts, a better understanding of Daoist Cultivation or seeking effective physical therapy you might find what you’re looking for, be that small group classes, private tuition or classes in your health club.

Beginners are welcome to come along to the public Tai Chi for health class in Stockport and have a go!  It is currently suspended due to C19, but usually at  7pm on Tuesdays. 

I’m now offering 1-2-1 on-line lessons in Tai Chi and Dao Yin , please get in touch to arrange. £35 per 60 Minute Session

I've been teaching continuously in Stockport, south Manchester since 1991.  

I’m located in Whitfield House, Viaduct St, Stockport, Town Centre,  SK3 0AD.  The building is easily accessible from Heaton Moor, Heaton Norris, Heaton Chapel, Heaton Mersey, Offerton, Davenport, Didsbury and South Manchester.  It’s also close to Junction 1 of the M60.

I also offer physical therapy appointments from a therapy room in Cheadle, Stockport.

The focus of the classes is, and always had been, on quality instruction to enthusiasts. Classes are aimed at adults (17+), they are small and informal. Please get in touch if you have any questions.

Of course not everybody can commit to attend a regular class or might prefer a direct one on one approach. Regular or occasional private classes might be more suitable, drop an email or call and we can discuss your requirements.

A quick word on spelling and terminology, due to the fact that in recent history Chinese has been translated in two slightly different ways you will see some slight variations in spelling.

Tai Chi = Tai Ji

Hsing I = Xing Yi

You will also sometimes see the word Chuan or Quan added to the above. Quan or Chuan both mean fist (literally) and by implication boxing to Martial Art.

Tao = Dao 

Both of these mean ‘The Way’ and are shorthand for Daoism / Taoism.
