Martial Arts and Fitness training and Coaching

Edward Shearer started on the path of Chinese health practices in 1996, beginning with qi gong (pronounced ‘chee gong’, lit. ‘energy work’) and Wing Chun, Shaolin and tai ji martial arts (pronounced as written but often, also ‘tai chee’). Daily tai ji quan (‘chuan’) and qi gong practice he regards as an essential and inseparable aspect of being an acupuncturist. The philosophical and practical themes at the root of health, qi gong and the martial arts are the same.
