When your Sifu and seniors tell you to start teaching your own class – you had better start to teach your own class! Actually, I felt very flattered and honoured when I was asked to start teaching. Although I have already been studying Qigong and Wing Chun for many years, sometimes I still feel that I have only started to scratch the surface of these incredible arts as the skill is so deep. In actual fact, I never intended to take up Qigong. I was far more in to very physical martial arts and traditional western health training (weights, running, etc). However, I injured my back when I was in my early twenties and I spent 18 months going through the western medicine route, which included being immobilised for six months and in a body cast for three months. I was like an old man, unable to even sit for long periods without being in pain. I desperately wanted to get back to having an active life. When all the â€˜conventionalâ€˜ medicine did not improve my situation, the doctors suggested surgery. Knowing the risks of surgery and feeling it to be unnatural, I looked into alternative remedies and I researched many. Acupuncture helped and my acupuncturist suggested that I do Tai Chi. It was then that I discovered my Sifu, Michael Tse, and he suggested that Qigong would help. Today, I am healthy, strong and back to enjoying life and martial arts. Qigong literally changed my life. Through both of these skills, my life has improved immeasurably. Teaching has given my studies another focus and it is my wish that people can get as much from Qigong and Wing Chun as I have. I am definitely a better person because of my training and cannot imagine my life without it.
