I had gone to Wing Chun classes when I was at university (although a poor imitation of what I am being taught now!), and had always meant to start again when I came to work in London, but drifted along without going somewhere regularly.
I knew that as part of my new journey to live my life differently I wanted to ensure I got my life in balance better, and so ensure that I focused less on my work and focus on the things I have found positive in my life. I came to your seminar in April last year and knew immediately that I had found what I was looking for.
In the past I had tried a few classes that focused solely on the physical without dealing with the mind as well. I find your philosophy with your Buddhist background so comforting, and realise more and more that many aspects of our hectic busy lives are out of balance if we don’t take the type of whole body, mind approach to life that you talk about.
I haven’t explained some of this very well, but I just wanted to tell you how much I value your teaching, both physical and mental, and how this has contributed to me moving from a lost, damaged person to someone that is so much more at peace with themselves and all the time learning better how I want to live my life.
Thank you Sifu.
