as a Tai Chi Practicioner
I have been practicing tai chi for over three decades and have trained under several instructors over these years from around North America and China.
I practice the Yang, Sun, and Chen styles as well as the National Combined Routines. In certain styles, I not only practice the fist forms, but the various sword (straight and broad), fan, and other weapon routines.

as a Teacher
It felt like it was only yesterday, but I started teaching tai chi on September 2, 1998 (yes, the very day that the Swissair Flight 111 disaster happened) in a small community room in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.
