Since retiring from Karate, I have been able to spend some more time doing my other hobby, T’ai Chi. The movement is fabulous when you get it right, and even though it causes me a lot of consternation, I am going to keep at it.
My class only runs once a week, and I usually top it up with weekends away a couple of times a year. So far I have managed to get to the Easter Weekend, the Wetherby Weekend, I have just booked for the Summer Week, and I know I will be attending the Weapons Weekend later on in the year.
My current T’ai Chi Teacher, knowing my background has asked me to start to teach a beginners class. To that end, I have attended the British Council of Chinese Martial Arts Coaching Course, passing their Level 2 (rather pleased, felt a little intimidated by the training to be honest, but he is a nice bloke :)) I have been accepted for Insurance purposes by my organisation, and I have a hall lined up!
The first Date will be 14th May 2018, anyone interested in having a go, please do stop by, it will be an exclusive affair as the hall is small, so I will only have around 10 students. The venue is Woodlands Methodist Church, Wetherby Road, Harrogate, HG2 7SG and we wil be starting at 7.15 pm.
