About Aaron 

I first learnt the Cheng Man Ching short form from my now good friend and training partner Luke Shepherd.

Some would say fate lent a hand , as i was introduced to 2 of Master Huang Shen Shyans students at a a very early Taiji age ; Patrick Kelly and Wee Kee Jin.

Both outstanding exponents of the art. Everything was about to change.

I continued practising under the guidance of PK for the last 20 years , Italy France and UK and a trip to Shanghai where he runs the 9 clouds taiji school.

Continuing my training and exploration i am now very grateful to be able to train regularly in the UK attending workshops and week long retreats with Wee Kee Jin.

It has also given me a chance to begin learning the White Crane system .

Mind - Body

Learning to quieten the busy overthinking mind is essential.

We always begin the class with softening of the mind, an exercise to bring the mind back into the body so we can be present with our practice. Far beyond just a movement based exercise .
