Russell is the only Master Ding Academy (MDA) instructor currently teaching Tai Chi Chuan and Chi Kung in Switzerland. He has been training with Master Ding having previously studied various martial arts in UK, Switzerland, and South Korea since 1995. With permission from Master Ding, Russell began teaching in Geneva in 2011.
Russell’s teaching explores the underlying principles of Tai Chi Chuan with the aim of unlocking the centered, soft power of the art. Over time and with practice inner strength, focus and confidence can naturally develop.
Classes typically consist of Chi Gung meditation, traditional exercises and learning the Tai Chi Chuan form. Partner work is used to practice the concepts and to create a fun, informal and relaxed atmosphere where everyone can learn from each other.
