His instructors have been; Jim O’Callahan (student of Martin Inn & Bob Amacker) Brad Louie (student of Prof CMC & Ben Lo), Martin Inn (student of Ai Hsin Chueh, Ben Lo & Mr. Chu), Bob Amacker (student of CMC & Mr. Chu). I emphasise the internal qigong aspects of Tai Chi Chuan as well as the Civil and Martial.
