About the Tutor:

'I have a passion for Tai Chi and would love to share my knowledge and experiences with other like-minded people. I have taught at other adult learning institutes and enjoy sharing my knowledge of Tai Chi Chuan. I began my Tai Chi journey many decades ago and it has taken me to many interesting places and met many amazing people.

Tai Chi has taken me overseas to compete and study internationally in Hong Kong and Singapore. I competed in the 8th Singapore International Martial Arts Tournament in 2019 and the 16th Hong Kong Wushu International Championship in 2018. I also participate in the TCAA World Qigong Day each year and TCAA Competitions in Sydney.

I enjoy doing Traditional Yang form; Yang style 24 form, Yang style 18 form, Yang style 40 form, Combined 28 form (a combination of 4 styles) and several weapon forms including Tai Chi Sword and Tai Chi Fan.' Lyn
