Trevor, the founder of the Company, also practices and teaches T'ai Chi
"As an electronics engineer, I travelled the world training engineers in the printing industry. On visits to China and Taiwan I became aware of T'ai Chi and have practiced for over 30 years finding it beneficial to alleviate my own symptoms of spinal deterioration. Since 2000 I have taught Yang and Sun style
"I was fortunate to be able to attend Dr Paul Lam's first UK workshop, and became an Approved Instructor for his T'ai Chi for Arthritis, Osteoporosis, Falls Prevention and Diabetes programs. I have since attended and assisted at several more of his workshops, including several in the USA designed to teach more advanced forms.
“I am a member of the T’ai Chi Union of Great Britain (TCUGB) and an Affiliated Master Instructor for Ability Martial Arts Association (AMAA). I am also a member of the Deyin Taijiquan Institute and have trained under Faye & Tary Yip & Prof. Li Deyin in traditional Sun style and Sabre forms. In 2011 I was endorsed by them as a Deyin Traditional Sun style Instructor.
"I now endeavour to pass on the benefits of T'ai Chi to others and as well as workshops around the country, hold regular classes for all ages and abilities for local groups, schools, etc. These are based on both traditional T’ai Chi and Dr Paul's specialised programs. All my classes are tailored to individual requirements and are suitable for all abilities and levels, and catering for advanced students and for those who may not wish to learn the more difficult T'ai Chi forms or their martial art aspects, but are trying to achieve a healthier, stress-

“In 2017 I published a book ‘Simplifying T’ai Chi’ which aims to help the beginner by dispelling myths and misconceptions, giving guidance on deciding on a class, the style to learn and the teacher, and then introducing basic T’ai Chi terminology, concepts, posture and safe movement. The book will answer many of the questions often asked in lessons (and those you wish you’d asked when you arrive home).
