In 1992,Sifu Jacques founded Tai Chi UK and established the
ZENON WUDANG TAI CHI CHUAN SCHOOL. In 1995 Sifu
Jacques codified the teaching of Tai Chi creating a grading
syllabus to enable teachers to be assessed according to their
knowledge and practical comprehension of Tai Chi. In 1997,
he developed a modular course for teachers of people with
learning difficulties and disabilities.
Sifu Jacques has a Bachelor of Arts Honours degree in Social
Science and a post graduate Certificate in Education. He has a
certificate in personal counselling skills and is also a Reiki
spiritualist healer. He is often called upon to judge international
competitions as well as attend seminars and give demonstrations
on Tai Chi and personal development.
Our team of qualified instructors and therapists led
by Sifu Jacques, includes Carlo Negri, Anthony Carney,
Agbeko Gbewonyo and Elizabeth Ogole who take classes
at a variety of venues. They follow the same syllabus and
Tai Chi style ensuring continuity wherever you choose to train.

At Tai Chi UK, we believe that a competent instructor/therapist
should have a wide range of skills so as to leave the customer
feeling relaxed, fulfilled and happy after each session. To
achieve this, an instructor/therapist must have good counselling
skills, know breathing techniques and have touch therapy skills.
To maintain this high standard of professionalism our
instructors and therapists are required to attend teacher
training seminars 4 times a year as part of the process of
renewing their teaching licence.
Among our clients are Holmes Place and Kensington Spa
health clubs,Priory school(a South London secondary school
for children with severe learning difficulties), Shell
International and Capital radio.
