Profile I first met my Sifu, Jens Thinnesen, in circumstances totally unrelated to the study of martial arts or Qigong but in talking to him I saw an opportunity to learn these wonderful skills. Although I have always had an interest in martial arts, it was one of those things that I just never got around to doing as a result of mounting work pressures and other pressures that are inherent with modern society. However, with this opportunity in front of me, one which some might consider to be fate, it was not one that I was going to let pass and I grasped it with both hands and can say with conviction that I have not looked back since. This is an important message that I would pass to anyone, not just in the context of martial arts or qigong but with anything that represents a real interest to you, because devoting the time can truly change your life for the better. At first I limited myself to the study of Wing Chun but, following a medical assessment that formed part of my employment at which it was identified that I had high blood pressure, I discussed the benefits of Qigong with my Sifu and following which, I also started studying Dayan (Wild Goose) Qigong. I have since found that not only has the study of Qigong improved my health but it has helped my Wing Chun skills to develop as well through relaxation and greater awareness of my body. Time now seems to have passed so quickly and over more recent years I have started studying Chen style Taiji Quan (Tai Chi Chuan) and Chun Yuen Quan with my Sifu and Hard Qigong with my Tai Sigong, Master Michael Tse, skills to which I am now equally devoted. To be a part of the Tse Qigong Centre is an honour that I treasure greatly, not only resulting from being entrusted with some very precious skills but from meeting great people, some with whom I have formed friendships that will never be lost. I know it sounds like a bit of a cliché but it really is like a big family. I am now in the privileged position of being able to teach my own class and hope my students will enjoy and benefit from the skills I have learnt in the same way that that I do.
