I began training martial arts at the age of 19 after surviving a serious illness. I was in search of a way to regain my health. After training some Taijiquan, some escrima, some karate, I discovered Baguazhang and began looking for a good Bagua teacher. This led me to the doorstep of Vince Black. I have been with Vince and the Tang Shou Tao ever since, 13 years now.
During that time I have had opportunity to train with many of our Senior Advisors in China and in the States; I have become a certified instructor with NATSTA and a registered acupuncturist in Canada. I currently operate an Acupuncture and Tuina clinic and a gongfu school where we continue to research the internal arts in both the martial and medical fields. I am particularly interested in the application of Gongfu medicine in humanitarian settings and impoverished communities. I am currently serving as president of NATSTA.
