Train with me

I am the chief instructor at the Academy of Traditional Fighting Arts which has its headquarters in the Bayswater Martial Arts and Yoga Centre in Perth, Western Australia. There I hold separate weekly classes in various traditional martial arts.

I am a highly qualified, passionate and dedicated teacher who brings to the table more than 30 years of continuous training and diligent research.  I am easygoing, don't stand on ceremony and welcome any sincere prospective students.  Men and women of all ages are welcome.

I hold 2 classes per week (Monday and Thursday evening from 7:30 to 9:00 pm) at the Academy’s headquarters in Bayswater.

I also hold 2 classes per week in gong fu (kung fu), namely:
  • taiji (tai chi); and
  • bagua (pa kua); and
  • xingyi (hsing i); and
  • shaolin (hard style gong fu).
These classes are held on Saturday morning from 9:30 to 10:30 am and on Wednesday evening from 7:30 to 8:30 pm at the Academy’s headquarters in Bayswater.

My classes are not focused on sport, but rather on practical self defence, health, fitness and well-being and artistic expression.  If you are interested in ancient yet scientific art forms that are a physical expression of Daoist (Taoist) philosophy, then you’ve come to the right place.  My classes are also geared at ensuring a safe, friendly and enjoyable, yet stimulating, learning environment.
