John Collins 4th Duan Wei – Head Instructor Ireland Tai Chi Association
A journey to China in 2004, ignited a passion for tai chi and qigong. Having trained in other martial arts for over 10 years, tai chi was that missing piece of the puzzle he was searching for.
His passion and dedication to training gained him one of the highest honors in Chen Tai Chi to be accepted as a direct student of the current family representative Grand Master Chen Zhenglei – the only Irish person to have received this honor and is also a senior indoor student of Grandmaster Liming Yue.
John travels to China regularly to improve his knowledge of Tai Chi and QiGong.
