Guide Bio

I am a two-time world kung fu champion and the Chief Instructor at this retreat in the mountains of Thailand’s remote Mae Hong Son province. I trained for many years under Chinese Kung Fu legend Grand Master Tan Soh Tin who took me around South East Asia, China and Taiwan to meet and study with the best of the old generation of Kung Fu Masters.

From humble beginnings fighting on the London streets, I rose through the ranks of Chinese Kung Fu to become a master of the famous Iron Shirt Chi Kung, martial arts author and coach to the British international full contact team. Having moved to the peaceful but energetically charged atmosphere of the northern Thai mountains, I have become a leading thinker on Kung Fu philosophy, spirituality and wisdom.

My mission is to help those who come to me to find the higher levels of Kung Fu training and unify mind, body and breath through their study of the original Chinese art of Kung Fu.

Thank you for submitting a review. It will be published shortly.
