Our Tai Chi instructor Ian Houghton is known as a 'Sifu', which comes from the Chinese word meaning teacher, skillful person or master. He has been practising martial arts for 39 years and Tai Chi for 34 years. He has a black belt in Shaolin Kung Fu, and teaches Wing Chun Kung, the art of self-defence.
He is also qualified to teach Yang Tai Chi, Chen Tai Chi and several forms of martial arts, to a very high standard.
He is currently studying Lau family Hung Gar and Dim Mack with a renowned Master, Steven Burton, developing his skills in the ancient martial arts which develop combat strength, power and health.
Here in the WGB, Ian will be teaching Yang Tai Chi. This is the most popular and widely practised form of Tai Chi involving fluid slow movements. Steady movements help practitioners relax and feel the flow of energy within their bodies. With its grace, emphasis on relaxation and smooth internal energetics, the Yang style attracts and retains many students each year.
Ian Houghton will return 2nd May 2019 to teach his weekly classes at WGB every Thursday 12 till 2pm
This 2 hour session will cost £8 and involves a series of gentle exercises for all ages and abilities.
