We are delighted to announce that as from 17th April Dr Jin Ye will be teaching the Rockingham and Mapplewell Mindful Tai Chi groups. Master Jin Ye is the great-granddaughter of Master Wu Jianquan, the founder of the Wu Style Tai Chi and is an internationally recognised master . She has taught Tai Chi Chuan for over 35 years, originally in her home city of Shanghai for over 10 years, and she has been living and teaching Wu Style Tai Chi since 1991 in the UK. She runs regular classes and seminars in Huddersfield, Barnsley, London, Berlin and Leiden in the Netherlands. She also teaches Wu Style Tai Chi in the UK to students from Spain, Italy, Germany, France, Denmark and South Africa.
Master Jin Ye is unique in the UK for her insight and knowledge of Wu Style Tai Chi Chuan being the only teacher to have direct Wu lineage and probably the only teacher in the UK to know the five Wu style double edged sword forms.
Dr Jin Ye has previously taught at Mindful Tai Chi workshops but to have access to her excellent teaching on a regular basis is great news and really puts Barnsley on the international Tai Chi map.
