I am benefitting greatly from the advanced Tai Chi class. I come away every Saturday afternoon feeling highly energised. I was keen on taking on a 2nd class during the week and the new class being run by Si Jie Chris and Si Hing Steve is allowing me to gain a deeper understanding of Tai Chi and to build on the foundations of the last two and a half years from the Murrumbeena class. I am beginning to appreciate that Tai Chi is like an onion. The deeper you go, the more layers there are to explore…

The kung fu Master’s non-invasive and easy going teaching style are more effective than the ‘must do’ compulsions in other martial arts institutes.

Golden Lion’s kung fu classes are better organised and pay more attention to detail than other classes I have attended, the atmosphere is welcoming and caring.

You could say, it is not so much an ‘advanced’ class, as an ‘in depth’ class. You don’t need to be an ‘advanced’ student to get something out of it, but it does help your understanding of the applications if you have already completed Beijing 24. Learning all the other aspects of Tai Chi is giving us a deeper, more rounded understanding of the practice and history of this art form. As to the bag of rice and the plastic cup? Sorry, you’ll just have to join the class to find out wh…

There are many pseudo experts in Pressure Point Assault System or Dim Mak who hope to capitalize on the Hidden Art just to advance their own cause. Such imitations leave the imitators with media-popularity and style WITHOUT substance.
I was looking for the Ultimate Teacher of DM over three decades in Asia and America; the Golden Lion Academy under Grandmaster Dr Pier TSUI-PO was my martial arts moment of divine revelation, the epiphany. DM instructions under Grandmaster Dr Pier TSU…

PLASTIC CUPS and BAGS of RICE – centuries old secret techniques for Tai Chi? You might wonder what a bag of rice and a plastic cup could possibly have to do with learning Tai Chi but these items are vital to our development in Si Jie Chris and Si Hing Steve’s Saturday ‘advanced’ class! Alongside polishing our Beijing 24, we are learning so much more about each move and it’s application; the stories and traditions behind the form; ‘push hands’; Chi cultivation; and even the ‘salut…
I’ve strengthened my will power… it has given me back my self-worth…made me stronger as a person.

We are finding that the Advanced Tai Chi Classes Si Jie Chris is offering to be of great benefit to our understanding of Tai Chi. We have been made aware of things that have, of course, been told to us over the years, and which we do not always remember – posture, grounding, relaxation, breathing – but these classes, by working slowly through the movements and the rationale behind them, makes us much more conscious of the physical and mental aspects associated with Tai Chi.

Tai Chi has increased my self confidence, taught me how to coordinate my body and breathing … shown me how to control my emotions…given me a sense of accomplishment and achievement I never thought possible.
Sandra Neal
I have found the advanced class to be both great fun and very informative. It has enabled me to consolidate the skills already learnt in the Beijing 24 while at the same time gaining an understanding to the background of other aspects of Tai Chi and how they fit together as a whole. Also I love the way Si Jie Chris weaves the stories of the past Masters into the class.
