About

Posted by Stuart Herbert on January 22nd, 2007

Welcome to the Ten Principles Tai Chi blog and website.

This is Stuart Herbert’s blog about being a student of the Chinese art of T’ai Chi Ch’uan. He also talks about the classes that he teaches, and about his experiences as a Tai Chi teacher, and it’s a place where he can share stuff online with his students.

Stuart studies and teaches Ng Family Yang Style T’ai Chi Ch’uan under the instruction of Robert Earl Taylor until his death in 2008. Stuart has been studying since 1999, and teaching his own classes since September 2007. Robert studied Ng Family Yang Style T’ai Chi Ch’uan from Dr. Louis Ng in Cardiff in the 1980’s, and taught the art for over 15 years before retiring from teaching public classes in 2007. Louis in turn learned the art from his grandfather, whose name we currently do not know. It is likely that Louis’ grandfather was a contemporary of Yang Cheng’fu, or of one of Cheng’fu’s students, from the 1920-1930’s.
