It had been a longstanding ambition of mine to study tai chi, and having finally gotten off my derrière, I count myself very lucky to have found Jan. He runs a really great class (it was one of the high points of my week), and his studio is marvellous too.
I’m off to China to be a history teacher at a high school outside Nanjing. I do intend to pick up tai chi again, but I somehow doubt that I’ll be able to find as good a teacher as Jan- knowledgeable, wise, and good humoured. I’m very grateful to have met him and I wish him continuing success with it, and I’ll certainly look him up if and when I’m back in Ireland.
