Special Announcement

Not since the second world war have we as a nation had to face such upheaval and worry. We are once again at war but this time with a hidden enemy that can only be defeated with discipline, compassion, caring, science and our inner army of immune cells.

 Most of us won't be able to offer the scientific answers, but we can engage ourselves in becoming disciplined in our cleanliness (especially our hands). We can be compassionate and caring to others who are going through this with us (especially the elderly, those with health issues and those who are less able to provide for themselves). There is something else we can do from a Tai Chi and Qigong perspective to boost the Qi of our immune system and that is 'Train'. We should up our levels of Tai Chi and Qigong training by practising Huxi Qigong (Breathing Training) outdoors daily (subject to our British weather). This will generate our 'Guardian Qi' which is according to the ancient Chinese masters "Wards off all external evils". These 'Evils' as they call them include cold and flu viruses that find it difficult to penetrate our immune cell - energise 'Guardian Qi' and therefore it is here in this discipline that we at China Bridge Tai Chi can offer some help. Also, check out the breathing section of my 'Healthy and Fit with Tai Chi' dvd and keep in touch with our website where we will be uploading some short training tips in Huxi and Jing Zua (Meditation) both of which in combination will feed the Guardian Qi.

Most importantly take care of yourself because if you are unwell how can you care for others.

A tribute to Jeff Cushing

This is a very sad time for the teachers and students of China Bridge as we come to terms with the passing of our friend and colleague Jeff Cushing. He was a person who was dear to us all in how he entertained us with his scouse humour and enlightened us with the generosity of his wisdom. Jeff has been with us at China Bridge for at least a quarter of a century and played a major role in the evolution of our group by constantly sharing his considerable Tai Chi, Qigong and Yoga skills with us and whilst that is important to remember, it is Jeff himself that we will miss the most. His gentle nature, his warmth, his humour and his kindness will forever be embedded in the hearts of those who knew him and our deepest sympathy goes out to Heather, Yasoda and the rest of his family who I know are suffering his loss at this time. On a personal note the void left by our dear friend Ian Begbie has now widened and will be impossible to fill now that I have lost not one, but two Tai Chi brothers.
