On arriving in Hong Kong in 1971 my first thought was to find a Tai Chi teacher.

This was to follow up the interest that I have always had in martial arts. I first started with Judo when at school. Moved on to boxing, then Wado Ryu Karate came along and I practiced that for a number of years It was when I came across a copy of Tai Chi by R.W Smith & Cheng Man Ching that my interest was piqued. At that time there was no Tai Chi of any kind around.

I jumped at the chance to go to Hong Kong, at last the opportunity to find out more about Tai Chi. I went to a sports shop and asked if he new where I could learn Tai Chi, he immediately recommended Cheng Tin Hung saying he is the best That was good enough for me.

I am fortunate that I found what I was looking for all those years ago.I have never found the need to try anything else.Through the practice of Tai Chi Chuan. I have healthy respect for all the arts, but Tai Chi Chuan is and always will be, the way I wish to follow.
