Last month, Peterston WI organised a tai chi taster session for members run by Andy Thompson, former Pendoylan primary and Cowbridge Comprehensive school pupil who has recently returned from the Far East.
Andy emigrated to Hong Kong in 1997, and has almost four decades of experience in the martial arts. He is one of few Westerners to become an indoor disciple (a coveted title in Chinese martial arts) and successor to the art of taijiquan (tai chi) under grand master Zhu Tian Cai.
Andy now teaches authentic tai chi in the UK and is passionate about sharing the incredible health and well-benefits with everyone.
Members really enjoyed the session, learning to awaken and energise our Qi and we ended with a wonderful cup of green tea made by Andy’s wife, Cici, whom Andy met in China who also supported Andy with the class.
