    Dear Sigung Clear,
    I have just purchased your combat Tai Chi DVD from TRS and found the information enlightening, having trained in various arts and read hundreds of books on the subject I had been introduced to the theoretical information but your DVD coalesced all that in a very short and clear way. I wish I had discovered your school years ago.
    Do you ever hold workshops in the UK? As I believe your style of training would be a real eye opener to many Tai Chi students.
    thank you for your time
    yours David

  2. Hi David,
    Thank you so much. I am always interested in doing workshops in the UK.
    Please let me know if you want to make arrangements to host me there.
