  • Instructor Background

    Open or Close
    Instructor : Stephen Douglas

    I first started practicing Yang style Tai Chi Chuan in Glasgow in 1982 with Ronnie Robinson.
    In 1984, Ian Cameron opened a Wutan class in Glasgow, and I changed then to that style in order to further my Tai Chi. Since the death of Cheng Tin hung in 2005, the style has become known as Wu-Cheng.
    I am fortunate to have attended a number of seminars run by Cheng Tin hung in 1985 & 86, held in Edinburgh, Bathgate, and Glasgow.

    Ian Cameron ran classes directly in Glasgow for about 2-3 years, and then through senior students (Tom Hendry, Alasdair McSween), and eventually falling to me in the early 90's. I have been teaching the class ever since, and continued to attend Ian Cameron's classes in Edinburgh until his retirement in 2021. The method of teaching in Glasgow remains respectful to that of Cheng Tin hung and Ian Cameron, and would probably be best described as 'traditional'.

    I obtained an intermediate teaching certificate within the Five Winds School in 1992, and Senior Certificate in 2007. I am qualified to teach all 5 aspects of our system of Tai Chi.

    I entered the 2002 Tai Chi Chuan European Championships in Denmark, gaining two medals in advanced weapons forms, and visited Hong Kong and China in 2004.

    I am interested in all aspects of Tai Chi, martial, health, meditative, philosophy & history, and most of all the physical practice. It is an endless process of refinement and understanding.
