Title: Dave Eyeions
I began training Tai Chi Chuan in 1996 under the guidance of Sifu Peter Newton who is the founder and head of The China Bridge Tai Chi and Qi Gong Centre. I trined and practised regularly and often, working my way up the China Bridge grading syllabus and in January 2006 I attained level 6 Instructor level. I have continued to train, practice, teach and learn since then.
My main influences have been Short Form, Long Form, Broadsword and Narrow Blade forms, Tai Chi Staff and Tai Chi Spear Forms. Included in my experiences are Pushing Hands, Qi Gong sets, Tai Chi Chin Na and a personal love of mines, Martial Applications.
I have over the years had the very fortunate opportunity to train under Master Yang Jwing Ming when he has been visiting Ireland and Liverpool. I also used to do Full Contact Karate in the 1980s getting up to brown belt level until injuries took their toll.
