“Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power”Lao Tzu
My interest in Martial arts began at the age of 28. I found Taekwondo after suffering a back injury in a car accident. Thanks to my caring teacher, Master Kim, I built my body back up and through his encouraging efforts I learned an important lesson – Health is our greatest possession.
After relocating I began training in the amazing art of Hapkido, but as I grew older, and being a musician, I became concerned about injury to my hands and wrists and stopped training at 45.
Hapkido also taught me a valuable life lesson – Know your limitations.
Five years passed before I came across the amazing world of the Cheng Ming System and began studying with Neil Meyers. Tai Chi is a fascinating world to explore and has a depth of personal discovery and refinement which will easily last a lifetime. When it comes to Tai Chi – There is always more to learn.
I have been fortunate to live my life as a professional musician and tutor. Please feel free to click on the red link to enjoy my recent musical creations on Youtube. Chris Perry Homegrown Music.
Now I look forward to applying thirty years of experience as a tutor and sharing my knowledge of Tai Chi with you. Thank you, Chris
