Senior Instructor – Stuart Raine
I first became involved in Tai Ji Quan in the late 1990’s while living in Scotland. On returning to Hertfordshire I began tuition with David Stanton-Miller Sifu and found a reassurance and purity in the quality and detail of the instruction. I have remained a student of his ever since and continue to attend regular classes both on a one-to-one basis and with other advanced students and senior instructors.
Over the last decade I have been actively involved in both demonstration and tuition of the Art under the continued guidance and supervision of David Sifu. Along with the experience of my time in the Art and constant mentoring over the years by Sifu I am a qualified instructor (Coach Level 2) through the British Council for Chinese Martial Arts and working towards Coach Level 3, with full instructor insurance, as well as being an Instructor Member of the Tai Chi Union for Great Britain. Through the BCCMA I am also a certificated competition judge and have judged at the National Championships.
I am also a qualified first aider, fully DBS checked and have a BSc Hons Environmental Sciences degree.
I have been running a class in Royston in North Hertfordshire since 2016 and am looking forward to continuing to pass on the benefits of this art and introduce new students to this enjoyable balance of relaxation and mental and physical exercise.
