About us

My name is Michael Acton and I am the founder and senior instructor of the Wu Shi Taiji and Qi Gong Assoc.UK.

I am a 5 Generation Wu Style Taiji and Qi Gong disciple of Master Li Li Qun of Shanghai.  My Association is devoted to the practice and promotion of the Traditional Wu Style of Taiji Quan and Therapeutic Qi Gong.

We offer a friendly, non competitive  teaching environment in both Taiji Quan and Qi Gong to all ages and abilities. We teach a comprehensive theoretical and technical syllabus that introduces the student to the ideas, methods, strategies and culture that comprises Taiji and Qi Gong as both a martial art and a  health and therapeutic practice.
