Hi, I'm the founder and chief instructor of the Agar-Hutton Tai Chi Academy. I'm ranked by the Tai Chi Union for Great Britain as a 'Senior Instructor', the highest of their four instructor grades. I'm an expert martial artist with qualifications in Karate as well as Tai Chi. I started training in 1971 and began teaching around 1993.
I have a B.Sc. (Hons) degree in Martial Arts and Sports Psychology from the University of Derby (Buxton Campus) which I earned after three years of full time study at University, as a mature student, between 2007 and 2010. That degree makes me one of only a handful of people (and probably the only Tai Chi instructor) with both practical experience and formal academic knowledge of martial arts in the UK.
I am regularly asked to teach Tai Chi and Self Defence at seminars in the UK, USA and Malaysia.
