Keith’s interest in martial arts began in the 70’s with the study and practice

of Judo and Tomiki Aikido.His work lead to an interest in Psychology with a

particular leaning towards the work and writings of Carl Gustav Jung which

in turn introduced him to the study of the “I Ching” (The Book Of Changes)

and the “Tao Te Ching” by Lao Tzu and Daoist philosophy.This inevitably

resulted in taking up the practice of Tai Chi and joining the Daoist Tai Chi

Society in the late 80’s.


Keith moved to Sussex in the mid 90’s and joined the Zhong Ding organisation

and began his passion for the Tai Chi Chuan of Professor Cheng Man-Ching.

Work and frequent travel abroad lead to periods away from attending classes

but he continued his study, solo, on the Tai Chi “form” and Qigong.


He is very proud to have been awarded First Duan assistant instructor with

Internal Alchemy Internal Martial Arts School and in the Taoist tradition,to

continue, always to be a student of Tai Chi.


Keith will be running a NEW 10 week Tai Chi course starting January 13th

2020 Mondays 19-00 until 20-00.
