For more information about Altairs study in these arts, see Tai Chi & Qigong. In 2009 he was given the title of Honorary Vice President of the Tai Chi Union of Great Britain, the UK's largest register of qualified teachers, for services to the community. He is now writing a book that will help more people transform into their authentic selves!

Specific to this Tai Chi lineage (Huang Shyan Sheng, Master of the Chen Man Ching lineage), is the teaching of 5 relaxing exercises, that enable the Tai Chi Principles to be understood at your body-cellular level, not just in your head! This is an internal teaching, rarely taught publicly! I am privileged to have studied with Master Wee Kee Jin, who teaches in this way, so I am honoured to pass it on to my students.
